HALF-A-CENTURY OF PATENTED, MARKET-DRIVEN INNOVATIONS
Our approach to innovation is simple and effective. We listen to you and your customers to understand all aspects of your collective needs and deliver a product that seamlessly integrates with your process, maximizes your efficiency and delivers long-term reliable performance.
Doing business on five continents gives us a unique opportunity to build worldwide strategic supplier partnerships. Our global reach allows us to access the latest in materials, equipment and know-how to continuously improve our product performance today and enhance our flexible packaging solutions tomorrow.
Built on more than 50 years of experience, Liqui-Box pioneered technology in the bag-in-box and pouch flexible packaging industries. Today, we continue to build on our legacy and strive for innovative solutions for your packaging needs. We are specialists in many liquid packaging industries such as beverage, dairy, food and wine, as well as experts in pasteurized, ESL and aseptic processes.
HOW WE INNOVATE
The first step is to understand the scope and various considerations of each new development project. By soliciting feedback from our customers and the end consumer and maintaining an understanding of whats current in the industry throughout the world, we gain a better understanding of what’s needed for each application and innovation project.
We actively engage in the ideation process with our customers—it’s part of our DNA. We work with you to fully understand your business context, needs and requirements, as well as those of your customers, in order to generate ideas and develop the best solution.
We identify critical functions and keep them in focus while generating and selecting concepts to develop. We explore concepts through sketch ideas and 3D modeling to visualize the design proposal, communicate functionality and features clearly, and make any necessary revisions based on feedback.
We develop an initial prototype, test and optimize the design of each component, then finalize the project to ensure a complete and effective solution.
We work with our customers to optimize performance and implement the final design. This final phase validates innovation through real-life functional testing. Once we have ensured that you and your customers are completely satisfied, we take the final steps to initiate commercial production by scaling up our prototype.
IN-HOUSE DEVELOPMENT CAPABILITIES
We take pride in our ability to design, test and manufacture our fitments, films, connectors and fillers in house. Our team has developed strong capabilities for testing fitments and films in our state-of-the-art lab. We also use design and prototyping capabilities to test and verify the fit and function of our innovations in progress. Whatever your project requires, we have the capabilities to deliver an outstanding solution. See some of our lab capabilities below.
FITMENT DEVELOPMENT & TESTING
- We develop our fitments through 2D and 3D CAD modeling software, which facilitates all phases, from design through to prototyping.
- Our full fitment testing capabilities include: dimensional, tensiling, environmental testing (hot/cold/steam/bio) to predict design and material durability, filler compatibility, and packaging, shipping and dispensing performances.
BAG SAMPLES & FILM TESTING
- Seal strength analysis
- Tear resistance testing
- Over-the-road package integrity simulation testing (vibration, drop)
PRODUCTION OF INNOVATIVE PACKAGES
- We ensure innovative package production by testing the interaction between the bag and our filling equipment. This is a cross-functional process involving both the lab and equipment teams.
