Volpak: serving the market with forty years of innovation
After forty years of providing a complete range of pouch packaging solutions, Volpak looks back on 2018 with great satisfaction and is now preparing to face the challenges of the future armed with its formidable experience in the design, production and marketing of flexible pouching solutions.
The Spanish company’s latest equipment offering, SC+, is a Horizontal Form Fill Seal machine created in close collaboration between the Volpak R&D team and the engineers at Coesia Center Engineering (CEC). Using continuous motion technology, the SC+ provides high levels of performance and flexibility and lends itself to many different product sectors including confectionery, dairy, pet food and many more.
Enflex is the company’s brand range specialising in medium-low speed solutions, aimed at clients with production needs based around smaller volumes but no intention of giving up on characteristics like sturdiness and reliability. In 2018 Enflex proved once again to be a fundamental asset to Volpak, with an 87% increase in orders.
Volpak presented its Standcap pouch at the Pack Expo trade show in Chicago, where it was awarded the Technology Excellence Award in the “Beverage and Dairy” category. Standcap is a highly innovative packaging design, offering a number of benefits for the final user, including superb ergonomics, a closure system designed to prevent product wastage and the functional benefit of perfect pack stability. All this together with the traditional characteristics of a pouch, giving extended shelf life and great practicality in use.
Standcap is already used in the US market with brands that use it to package sauces, dressings, yogurts and personal care products like gels and creams. The prize received in Chicago adds to the list of five international accolades already won by the Standcap Pouch.
