‘Asepto Eye’ part of Uflex’s Asepto range is a ripple concave lens and single lens technology that gives 3D effects on aseptic packs.
The lenses come in various shapes and shapes for customer customization.
“Asepto Eye will change the concept of beverage packaging for years to come. This technology, having a lens effect in packaging is unprecedented and offers myriad choices to manufacturers to stand out on the shelves, and adds a premium value to their brand through our packaging,” said Ashwani Sharma, CEO/president, Aseptic Liquid Packaging Business, Uflex Ltd.
He added Aseptic Brick Packs are the most popular format amongst the ranges available in the market.
“There was a demand for something radically distinctive in aseptic packaging. There were no other value-additions for aseptic packs to stand out on shelves, which made brands confined to exploring designing different packaging shapes and sizes or consider color options to grab customer attention.
“Our concept of aesthetic rejuvenation brings a variety of option like foil-stamping, holography and 3D effects to communicate with end-consumers better, when the packs are on shelves.
“These options were never explored in aseptic packs since the packaging process is complex and everyone played it safe. This launch will not only enhance the look of aseptic packs, it will help them communicate well with purchasers.”
Uflex Ltd also exhibited its Asepto Flexpress 10000 filling machine at GulFood Manufacturing 2019.
Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman/MD, Uflex Ltd said Uflex has always been a forward-looking company. We have not only focused on customer the next generation of packaging ‘Asepto Eye’, but announced the launch of Asepto Flexpress 10000, filling line and operator-friendly HMI (Human Machine Interface).
“Uflex is pitching this machine for optimum packaging in the dairy, dairy products, juices and alcohol segment,” added Chaturvedi.
The advantage of ‘Asepto Flexpress 10000’ is that it offers flexibility for all-in-one portion packs from 90ml to 200ml.
