Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury has installed a new heat seal machine to enhance in-house product testing operations.
The company is upgrading the internal testing equipment to provide better quality and product dependability to customers.
Clondalkin has invested in a heat seal machine to improve in-house capabilities for sealing a range of pot sizes, in addition to multipacks of four and six pack containers.
Multipacks allow consumers to break one pot of yoghurt without pulling off or damaging other lids, helping to maintain product integrity and freshness.
According to the company, the new machine provides the ability to test sealed pots in the same way a consumer would handle them.
Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury manufacturing manager Simon Timperley said: “Multipack lids are perforated very precisely so that the group of lids remain sealed during the filling process but break easily for consumers.
“This means that we test individual products and multipacks by sealing them, refrigerating them and using them in the same ways that consumers do at home.
“Adopting this approach allows us to test different materials, work with perforation configurations and refine our production techniques accordingly to provide the best performing lids on the market.”
In December 2018, Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury provided festive lidding solutions for Epic Dairy’s gourmet yogurt brand, The Collective.
By using mirror printing technology, Clondalkin has produced seven colour printed polyester lids with nine different designs.
Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury supplies flexible packaging solutions to the customers in the food, dairy, beverage, personal care and household sectors.
The company has developed a range of pre-cut lid and shrink sleeve packaging solutions.
With over 70 years experience, it has developed a reputation for leading the way in the manufacture of pre-cut lid and shrink sleeve packaging solutions.
