In our company we never stop innovating. Part of the innovation in the industry now is to reduce the quantity of plastic as much as possible without compromising the product and its performance. NorthStar technology efficiently delivers significant reductions in plastic content.
NorthStar technology is our innovative solution for reducing the amount of plastic in tube shoulders for sustainable packaging. By using ribs in the flat part of the shoulder, we can significantly reduce weight without compromising stability, strength or functionality.
With our approach, we achieve a shoulder weight reduction of about 10% for a tube diameter of 35 mm. With a tube diameter of 50 mm, we reduce the shoulder weight by around 20%. These values are based on a starting shoulder thickness of 1.0 mm. When the original shoulder thickness is more than 1.0 mm then the savings are even greater. These savings not only lead to more sustainable production, but also to lower energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions.
Contact us today to learn more about our innovative solutions and see how we can help you cut costs and reduce your environmental footprint. Together, we're creating a future with less plastic and a better environment!
To reduce the plastic content even further and have a greater impact, we recommend combining NorthStar technology with our other Swisstainable technologies such as Fuji.
