Packaging firm Ileos has added a new product to its range of Flexpaq sampling sachets. The Swift Open Sachet, as it is called, has been designed with a new opening system to allow consumers to open up a product without finding themselves drenched in ketchup or some other foodstuff.

The new product is available in either clear or foil-based materials, and complements the firm's popular E-Z Open Sachet. This opening feature was designed for sachets to work well even in wet environments.

The firm has also enhanced its bottle-filling and tube-filling capabilities with an automatic filling system that uses sanitary gear pumps, a variable speed drive train, individual clutch brakes, and computerised controls.

The capper utilises a star-wheel indexing system and tightening chucks monitored by a digital torque meter, and is fed by a vibratory bowl. An automatic labelling system offers front and back, and/or wraparound, labeling options.

In addition, the company's recently enhanced tube filling capability now allows it to fill all of types of laminate and/or plastic tubes in a variety of diameters.

Flexpaq​, an Ileos Group company, is a manufacturer of promotional sampling packaging, retail unit-of-use doses and trial sizes, which are distributed in magazines, mailings and at point-of-sale. The company claims that its goal is to design unique and innovative packaging that enhances consumer trial and reinforces brand identity.

The Ileos Group in the United States includes Axilone, makers of aluminum caps and closures, Raffypack/ Alliora, manufacturers of cartons and boxes and Flexpaq. Ileos holds a leading position in a number of global business sectors including caps and closures, sampling and adhesive labels.
