DS Smith Plastics, Injection Moulded Products Introduces Stackabox Hybrid™ and Stackabox C&C™ to their line of Reusable Dispensing Containers
Stackabox™ Bulk Dispensing containers have become a common name in the world of PET preforms for several years now. Stackabox was already available in Compact, Medium, and Maxi formats and is suitable for an optimum truckload in the UK and mainland Europe.
The most important aspect of Stackabox™ is that it fits perfectly in the fully automated dispensing systems of beverage, filling and Caps & Closures companies. The patented design is the only bulk container that allows for both top-as bottom dispensing in a wide variety of existing dispensing frames.
Bottom dispensing is becoming the overall preferred system because it has the unique advantage to decrease damage to the bottleneck of the preforms by smoothly sliding the preforms in the hopper of the filling line, but the flexibility of the Stackabox allows integration in every imaginable automated system.
DS Smith Plastics is expanding their Stackabox line of Bulk Dispensing Containers with two special versions: The Stackabox Hybrid™ and the Stackabox C&C™.
The new Stackabox Hybrid can further optimise the supply chain by adapting the container’s height to the optimal size for content or transportation. The new bulk-dispensing container has the same base as Stackabox. The height can be easily adapted to customer requirements thanks to the AkyPack™ corrugated plastics sleeve in the middle section. Stackabox Hybrid is lighter than the original Stackabox but equally durable offering long life cycles. The smooth surface of the AkyPak sleeve is easily washable and suitable for printing.
Stackabox C&C was designed especially for handling Caps and Closures with a dispensing ‘sliding door’ located at the base of the bulk-container. The base dispensing system makes them the ideal solution that can be easily utilized throughout the entire production process of bottle packaging.
Both the Stackabox Hybrid and the Stackabox C&C have all the advantages of the traditional Stackabox bulk dispensing container. It has an ideal fold-down ratio, no need of a pallet and a unique base dispensing system or is compatible with all other dispensing systems.
Optimising customers’ Supply Cycle logistics needs is the key innovation driver offered by DS Smiths Plastics Stackabox line of dispensing bulk-containers. Stackabox has a lifespan of 8-10 years and can be recycled entirely at the end of its useful life.
DS Smith Plastics will be featuring Stackabox Dispensing Containers at Pack Expo International Chicago, IL from 14-17 October, Booth N5562 and BrauBevialle in Nuremberg, Germany from 13-15 November, Hall 4A, Booth 207
