SCA has developed a new technique for producing round corrugated board packaging. It offers new design possibilities while reducing packaging weight by 30%, thereby also improving environmental performance. Arcwise can be deployed in standard corrugated board production facilities

The combination of nature’s robust round geometries and the high rigidity of corrugated board gives unique stability to these packaging solutions. Transport packaging, retail-ready packaging, consumer packaging and store displays are examples of application areas.

“The technique opens up totally new possibilities for packaging designs that are attractive to customers and consumers,” says Rickard Hägglund, business manager for Arcwise. “Surveys show that we generally prefer rounded shapes to angular ones. Round packaging is eye-catching and attracts consumer attention in the retail environment. We think both designers and brand owners will find these opportunities very interesting.” The new technique is protected by international patents. SCA offers the technique to packaging manufacturers under license.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
