How to produce packaging TetraPak
• How to produce packaging TetraPak
How long have you bought in the store milk or juice? Most likely, recently. Maybe even today, and it is likely that in the hands of you kept it TetraPak packaging. Pack drinks in "cartons" (I deliberately take in quotation marks, ie. In. This is not quite the correct term) is quite familiar. The other day I was able to get to the company's plant in the frontal and see how it works
But first, a little history. The first contract with the USSR company TetraPak concluded yet already in 1959. Then by konktraktu it was supplied equipment for the production of packaging. However, our enterprising countrymen, to understand how to work the equipment, set up the production on their own :)
Like this. A TetraPak name - derived from "tetrahedron", ie to the first package that was invented by the company has been in the form of a tetrahedron...
TetraPak Lobnya factory opened in 2007
Production capacities allow to produce in Lobnya 4 billion packages per year
The process of creating the package begins with prepress. That of a resin plate (lower) will be made for printing print
By means of the thermal treatments and the use of the laser is obtained preform
Next wound on a roll
In the platemaking leaves about 5 hours
These are the forms are loaded in equipment
First, there is a cleaning material
And further application of paint. In fact it is such a large printer. Or rather several - each gets its color
As printed - it is necessary to check everything
The movement of goods in the warehouse robots engaged sorters automatically
After printing, the next step - lamination. Unfortunately laminating machine itself can not show (a trade secret, patent, competition and so on. D.). If, however, in general terms - the array paperboard at high speed passes through the assembly, where "pours" the molten material which solidifies. Laminator try if possible not to stop, t. To. To do this, all of the machine drain (not frozen) and send stuff like that once in a bucket is not profitable, naturally
Here we get a "reel"
The next step - cut it
Already cut and ready to use on filling machines zatogovki packed in polyethylene
The plant TetraPak spill is not made, the equipment is at the customer
be glued sticker with Strik-code. Next on the barcode konveyrer distributes products
And the crane puts the right place. Everything is automated.
Theoretically, print one roll can be less than 6 hours (or if there is a ready impression - something less than one hour) if the other orders is not currently executed (which is unrealistic), but it is printed in the schedule, so the working life - a week.
In addition to the actual packaging factory produces more and plastic tubes for beverages
One of the main advantages of the package - its processability. 26% of the outstanding packaging (651,000 tonnes worldwide) was revised in 2014
Target by 2020 - 40%.
Also, products are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council), confirming that the raw material was obtained from sources monitored, rather than poaching carved unclear, where the forest. By 2020, 100% of the products must have a certificate. But now on the packages can be uvidenm FSC icon (tree with a check mark)
