Krones, Husky, and Silgan announced at PACK EXPO that they have joined forces with Practically Impossible Labs to manufacture its BottleOne integrated handle PET bottle for the marketplace. Dairy, particularly milk, is the primary target market.
The partnership allows this patented technology to be manufactured on Krones’ Kosme rotary blow molder, with Husky preforms, and sealed with Silgan closures—a one-stop process for the industry, according to the comapnies.
A press conference was held today at PACK EXPO ushering inb the partnership and the technollgy. Product samples can be viewed during the show at Krones' Booth S-2138 and Silgan Containers' Booth N-6035.
Patented by Practically Impossible Labs of Houston, the BottleOneTM containers provide visualization of product, better sealing potential and product protection than other materials, and is shatter proof. Due to the structural integrity of the bottle technology, secondary packaging can be reduced or eliminated.
BottleOne containers are manufactured using injection and stretch blow molding process on industry standard equipment. The technology can be used for any large format container that would benefit a handle, including products such as dairy, water, alcohol, cooking oil, juice, tea, and household chemicals.
