Amelco Industries Ltd is one of the leading suppliers of raw materials and machinery for the manufacture of innerspring mattresses in the south-eastern Mediterranean and Middle East area. The company works hard to ensure that its products are the best they possibly can be – and with Mondi`s support it has now optimised the packaging for its mattress innersprings. With Mondi’s Advantage MF SpringPack Plus speciality kraft paper, the company exceeded customer and logistics expectations, while in addition it has set a new world record in innerspring packing together with Mondi`s Speciality Kraft Paper team. In order to enhance the loading capacity of the containers used during transportation, innerspring units are roll packed. Amelco made its first roll-packing machine more than 25 years ago, while by endorsing new customer needs and expectations, as well as its customers’ feedback, the machine has progressively been evolved to the version that is now been offered on the open market. Costas Georgallis, owner of Amelco Industries Ltd, explains: “We test our machine prototypes in real working conditions – e.g. with technical support from Mondi – and improve them before we release them to our customers who asked us to maximize the number of spring units packed in each roll. Together with Mondi`s speciality kraft paper experts we realised that controlling the paper tension was a major factor in achieving a successful result. We therefore had to use the best and strongest spring pack paper on the market – which is Advantage MF SpringPack Plus from Mondi. To us, there is no other packaging material that can match Mondi`s SpringPack Plus grade for roll-packing as it is the best suitable material to compress and roll-pack the springs in a safe way and without putting them at risk to be damaged.” Click Read More below for additional detail.
This February Rapak and Worldwide Dispensers will showcase its Mustang™ front push dispensing tap to the Eastern European market for the first time. Mustang dispensing tap extends wine shelf life to as long as 12-16 weeks after opening.
Mustang front push dispensing tap’s uniqueness relies in the lowest oxygen transmission rate (OTR) in the market which significantly extends the shelf life of oxygen-sensitive products. When used on wine flexible bags or pouches, Mustang keeps wine fresh for an impressive four months after it is opened. This makes the Mustang dispenser ideal for sporadic consumption at home and for restaurants and bars serving wine by the glass. Mustang taps also allow customers to pour and dispense wine from the Bag-in-Box or Stand Up Pouch with one hand.
