True to the motto “After the game is before the game”, corvaglia is already gearing up for the next trade fair after a successful drinktec. The innovative “adaptive flex band” injection mold technology
will be unveiled alongside the latest closure solution s at the K trade fair in Düsseldorf, which will be held from October 19 to October 26, 2022.
The “adaptive flex band” injection mold technology developed by corvaglia combines different and in some cases conflicting requirements of beverage bottlers a nd consumers. Above all, the
technology offers major advantages for the tethered caps, which comply with EU Directive 2019/904.
The key objective for beverage bottlers is finding closure solutions that can be easily applied to the bottles on an industrial scale. This makes it easy to ensure high productivity and reduce scrap at the
same time. For this purpose, a flexible tamper evident band has become established for conventional closures
Consumers, in turn, prefer a convenient opening and closing experien ce. Consumer tests have revealed that this requires locking it in the open position with a large opening angle. The locking
mechanism requires hinges, which are preferably produced in the inject ion molding process using slides in the injection molds. Slide s can be used to design a wide range of different hinges.
Combining both requirements in a single closure solution is difficult to implement from a technological point of view. Thanks to the new injection mold technology, however, corvaglia is now in a pos ition to
combine these two demands.
The corvaglia team of experts is looking forward to explaining the “adaptive flex band” concept to you in greater detail. corvaglia sales representatives from all regions of the world will be on hand at the
fair. The co rvaglia booth is located at Hall 12/ stand B36 02
