Antalis opens a new Smart Packaging Centre

Antalis opens a new Smart Packaging Centre
Following the initial launch of its Smart Packaging Centre (SPC) in 2018, Antalis has seen demand for its services grow, driven by customers seeking to find solutions to their packaging sustainability and efficiency concerns.

 Now, the company’s newly-opened SPC, which features a demonstration suite for packaging automation and a dedicated packaging design studio, has been designed to cater for this growing need. It provides customers with the opportunity to discuss their packaging requirements, as well as the chance to see packaging automation in action, packaging design being developed, and samples being quickly created on site.

The latest developments in packaging automation, including carton and bag on-demand machinery, are showcased and customers can also see demonstrations of a full range of in-the-box systems in air cushion and paper technology that wrap, cushion and protect products. Systems on display include those from Lantech, Sealed Air, Ranpak and Pregis.

Providing customers with the opportunity to see automation in action is a huge benefit, as John Garner, Antalis Packaging’s Head of Innovation and Design, explains. He said: “A lot of our focus at the SPC is on helping customers to understand how they can future-proof their business. Having the opportunity to see automated packaging machinery in operation makes it easier for them to understand the features of the different machines and to visualise how it might integrate with their existing set-up.”

The new dedicated design studio offers innovative packaging design as well as artwork design. Once a packaging solution has been developed on screen, samples can be created – and printed – in the demonstration suite.

John continued: “The ability to create fully printed samples is proving very popular with customers. We have had an injection of fresh thinking from our talented university interns, two of whom are now working full time in the studio. They have really wowed us – and our customers – with their fresh ideas and ability to create exciting solutions.”
