Global closures specialist Silgan Closures will have a major presence at this year’s drinktec, providing a showcase for its wide-ranging solutions for key sectors of the beverage industry.
The Silgan Closures stand (Hall A4, Stand 531) will underline the company’s expertise in the design and manufacture of both metal and plastic closures, demonstrating their ability to effectively seal all types of containers with different neck sizes, including glass, PET and liquid cartons, for a variety of end markets such as still mineral water, dairy drinks, non-carbonated beverages and liquid foods.
Among its plastic closure highlights, Silgan will display its market-leading range of Sports Caps combining a robust design with a tamper-evident spout and maximum consumer convenience, including variants offering one-step opening. For the still-growing water cooler sector, the company’s new improved 5 Gallon K-Seal closure incorporates Silgan’s innovative Probe+® system that ensures full plug engagement to the cooler spike to keep hygiene levels high and bottles consistently sealed when not in use. A reduction in pigment usage also substantially reduces the risk of taint or odour issues, while the latest manufacturing techniques together with a new resin and low-power consumption moulding during production, help to reduce a company’s carbon footprint.
Other plastic closures on display include Silgan’s extensive choice of flat caps for hot, cold and aseptic filling requirements, all helping to deliver line efficiencies, product integrity and ease of use.
Silgan’s metal closure ranges will underline the extensive choice available for non-carbonated beverages and foods packed in glass or plastic containers, with aseptic, hot fill, pasteurisation and retort offerings.
In addition, the stand will detail the extensive range of support services offered by Silgan Closures in the development of its closure solutions. These include its Litho Design Service that maximises efficiencies while taking customer designs from concept to production; the range of decoration options available for effective on-shelf branding; Food Technology Service that ensures process reliability and product quality to meet all food and drink standards; and Customer Technical Service and Line Planning that provide a one-stop engineering solution with the supply of machines and support services for an efficient filling operation.
“We are delighted to be returning to drinktec, as the exhibition is the ideal vehicle to enable us to reach a global beverage audience,” comments Markus Laurenz, Vice President Sales & Marketing/Service EMEA of Silgan Closures.
“We believe our comprehensive choice of closures and support services enable us to successfully meet the needs of even the most demanding applications and we look forward to discussing specific customer requirements with visitors during the show.”
