Replace Plastics with Carton Sleeve

In the past, companies in the dairy, drinks and beverage industries used to have their products such as yogurt cups, ice cream cups, dessert pots, etc., loaded onto a tray and then wrapped in plastics through shrink wrapping.

A significant downside of such packaging is the waste caused: the cardboard tray, and then above all the plastic film waste led by the shrink wrapper. On the other hand, given the fact that plastic wrapping must go through a shrink tunnel, the heat there would be a negative factor for dairy products which are sensitive to high temperature, minimal though it might be now that it only happens during the packaging process.

The carton sleeve, however, is in fact a more sustainable packaging option to supplant the above-mentioned method.

The principal advantages are as follows:

  • The carton sleeve used for wrapping the packaging is recyclable
  • The packaging automation process of carton sleeving involves no high temperature for heat-shrinking
  • The tray is no longer available for supporting the package
  • The sleeve offers more advertisement surface than the tray does and is more appealing in appearance.

For the current stage we are at immediate disposal to offer carton sleeving automation for single package and simple form of multipack such as 2*2*1 yogurt cups, 1*3 tuna cans or dessert pots, 1*1*2 ready meal trays. Some examples are as follows:
