A consortium of organisations led by retail-ready secondary packaging company TrakRap has been awarded a grant by Innovate UK to develop a prototype that could change the way aerosols are packaged and improve industry safety 뫼비우스 폰트 다운로드.
The consortium, which comprises The World’s Leading Logistics Company DHL, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry and the University of Bradford, plans to use the grant to build a prototype stretch wrapping packaging machine specifically for use in the aerosol industry, to replace the shrink wrapping systems which are currently used 게임 배경음악 다운로드. The use of shrink wrapping to package aerosols is inherently dangerous as the high temperatures required to shrink the film carry significant explosion risks Tiffany Waist Movement.
The grant was secured from Innovate UK, the agency responsible for driving scientific and technological innovations to grow the UK economy, following the successful completion of a proof of concept Unubod5 Excel. The proposed prototype eliminates the need for high temperatures entirely by using a 100% recyclable polymer stretch film. Its innovative technology will also reduce energy requirements by over 90% and reduce the use of plastics by over 60% compared to current shrink wrapping technologies, offering additional financial and environmental benefits to users Download Comipo pro.
DHL will provide the production line on which the finished prototype machine will run for several months under manufacturing conditions, while MTC will model the prototype machine in a virtual factory, allowing the design to be tested and amended before physical production occurs 가족송 고마워요 다운로드. The University of Bradford will evaluate the performance and characteristics of various films to ascertain their suitability for use with the machine Syracuse movie.
Martin Leeming, CEO of TrakRap, said: “It’s no secret that aerosols present significant challenges to the packaging industry; they are pressurised and highly inflammable by design, so the need to protect them – and those working with them – at every stage of the packaging process is of paramount importance MacBook Illustration.
“Historically, packaging manufacturers have been able to get around the problem by using traditional packaging methods, but a safe, energy efficient solution which sets the bar for the whole industry is still required green day 다운로드. With the backing of Innovate UK, and the support of our partners, we’re confident that we will be able to provide it.”
