US – Global leader in liquid packaging and dispensing, Liquibox has unveiled two new bag-in-box filling machines for safer, easier, and more efficient bag-in-box filling.
The latest modular design platforms include automatic A-Series and semi-automatic S-Series machines.
Liquibox, a portfolio company of Olympus Partners, said that the machines can fill a broad range of liquid products, including liquid food, beverages and non-food.
They can also be easily adjusted and customized to work with different fitments, taps, and bag sizes for different beverages to cleaning products.
The Liquibox A-Series filler is said to be totally automatic which makes high-speed filling a simple operation. It is made to be easy to use, adaptable for bag loading, and quick to switch between bag sizes.
In comparison to other filling equipment, the A-Series has a small footprint, allowing for more bags to be filled per square inch of the manufacturing floor.
It is also ESL capable and has a redesigned sterilizing kettle and chamber design, making it perfect for filling items with a longer shelf life, the company said.
The semi-automatic Liquibox S-Series is an accessible and user-friendly bag-in-box filler with superior production efficiency. It can be configured with a single head or two heads, allowing the producer to increase output as necessary, Liquibox claimed.
It also has a fully guarded design that complies with international safety standards that is suitable for a wide range of users, from start-up businesses to major brands.
Liquibox Equipment, Parts and Service global director Andrew Ernest said: “Liquibox A-Series and S-Series bag-in-box fillers offer brands a way to keep up with ever-changing industry needs.
“These revolutionary machines are part of Liquibox’s commitment to delivering high-quality, innovative solutions to our customers.”
Early this year, the company expanded the offering of its Liquipure ultra mono-material flexible packaging to customers across the globe.
Successfully introduced in the U.S. last year, this game-changing bag-in-box solution is now produced at Liquibox bag manufacturing sites in the EMEA and APAC regions to meet the global demand for sustainable packaging for all liquid products.
Designed for a waste-free future, Liquipure continues to gain momentum in the sustainable packaging industry.
Liquipure ultra was most recently recognized by the WorldStar Global Packaging Awards as a 2022 winner in both the beverages category as well as the packaging materials and components category.
It also won the Ameristar 2021 award in the category of non-alcoholic beverages and was displayed at the latest Pack EXPO Las Vegas Showcase of Innovations.
