InlineCan wins the German Packaging Award 2018

Since mid-March, the COFFEE³ ground organic coffee has been on the shelves of the food trade in an InlineCan. The cube-shaped carton packaging was developed with our patner OPTIMA and other companies. The barrier properties of the carton packaging are an alternative to conventional vacuum packaging. So we are pleased that the packaging not only reaches the consumer, but was also awarded at the German Packaging Award 2018.

InlineCan - the new packaging concept

InlineCan - the new packaging concept, which offers you entirely new opportunities. Produce your paperboard packaging in-house.

You can produce straight-walled paperboard cans in-house instead of using pre-fabricated packages, which are costly to transport and to store. With this system, you produce your packages straight from the reel, which offers you advantages in terms of: Environment, differentiation, product flexibility and costs!

Shape your brand:

  • It is easy to produce cans in different shapes: round, oval, rectangular and many more.
  • Differentiate yourself with your shaped paperboard can at the point of sale.
  • By changing the tooling you can produce different shapes using the same equipment. If you change only the height of the can, only a partial adjustment of the tool-set is required.

Environmental benefits:

  • Less CO2 – reducing the transportation automatically reduces your CO2 output.
  • Less warehouse space.

Your advantages if you produce in-house and in-line:

  • The warehouse space you needed to store 1,000 pre-fabricated cans before is now available for two reels of paperboard which is sufficient for as many as 30,000 cans.
  • No handling of pallets with pre-fabricated packages and risk of damage losses.
  • No depalletising of pre-fabricated cans.
  • A versatile selection of high-barrier paperboards are available, that have the required properties and run perfectly on the HÖRAUF equipment.
  • Many different sealing and lidding solutions are possible: e.g. a thin peel-off film can be applied directly on the top of the package. This is a very cost-efficient way to close your can. It is also possible to use other sealing mechanisms, e.g. a plastic or an aluminium ring.
