San Vendemiano (Treviso), 29 November – It has been a highly satisfying end to 2016 for PET Engineering, the Treviso-based company specialised in creative and feasible packaging solutions for the food and beverage industries. First public success for the fourth edition of PET Vision, held in Moscow on 13th October then the interest shown in the projects presented at Brau Beviale and Gulfood Manufacturing and lastly two important awards confirming the company's leadership in the packaging innovation sector in PET packaging development.
PET Engineering, a leading company in the design and industrialization of PET packaging, won its fourth Packaging Oscar - Quality Design category - for its 9.3, a pasteurized beer bottle that combines design, innovation and accessibility.
San Vendemiano (Treviso), April 26, 2016,– PET Engineering, an international leading design company for the design and industrialization of PET packaging – received the prestigious 2016 Packaging Oscar - Quality Design category - last Friday at the headquarters of the “Corriere della Sera” in Milan, thus adding on those already achieved in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
San Vendemiano, 8th February 2016 - On January 12 in Zhengzhou, strategic city for the food and beverage sector located in the central plains of the People's Republic of China, was held the conference to launch the first brand dedicated to the mineral water of Yake Food, a leader in the candy industry.
Among the 500 entrepreneurs and business partners present was Moreno Barel, C.E.O. of PET Engineering, who was invited to present the packaging chosen by Yake Food for its "Changbai Springs" brand, premium water that comes from the emerging need expressed by Chinese consumers to use more and more high quality products.
San Vendemiano (Treviso), Monday 4th April 2016 – PET Engineering, international leader company in the design and industrialisation of packaging in PET - the most widely used plastic for packaging with an ever greater presence in the food, detergents and cosmetics sectors - with its founder and pioneer Moreno Barel's 30 years experience in the sector, is evolving its image.
A growing number of bottlers are discovering the many benefits of using PET for the packaging of their products; its advantages such as infrangibility, safety during production, transport and use, and the higher lightness have encouraged Nigerian Breweries (Heineken Operating Company in Nigeria) to commission PET Engineering’s team for the extension of their Climax, Amstel Malta and Maltina brand packaging to PET.
The order provided important restrictions including the need to use a preform that was readily available on the market to create unique shapes that stand out on the shelf and enhance the brand’s impact in a package type in which the brand was previously not present, while maintaining such dimensions to prevent changes on the bottling line and make containers able to withstand the pasteurization process till 30PU at 61 °C.
The project, which started with the technical design of the containers and, in particular, with the study of a low petaloid able to withstand the internal pressure at which the container was then subjected during the pasteurization cycle, mainly involved the staff of the Laboratory and in particular Fiorenza Ferrero, R&D researcher.
"The first step of the project – said Fiorenza Ferrero - was to build the specific equipment to reproduce as closely as possible the client's industrial pasteurization process. After having validated the method through numerous tests, we took into consideration different types of resins that would allow the realization of a PET container able to withstand the pasteurization process normally used for glass bottles. After choosing the resin with the highest IV (intrinsic viscosity), in order to limit the deformation after filling and heating treatment, we prototyped different batches of bottle samples, which were tested and subjected to pasteurization in order to identify the best performing combination between bottle design and resin. The result was three PET containers obtained using a single type of preform, with a visually elegant petaloid base able to respect the rigid specifications of Heineken. The project was completed with the delivery of four mold series for the Ota plant”.
San Vendemiano, 20th November 2015 - P.E.T. Engineering presented its new materials and injection processes consultancy services for the first time at the Brau Beviale International Fair with the goal of supplying bottlers and converters with practicable solutions from granules all the way through to bottles on shelves.
San Vendemiano, 29th September 2015 – The quality of a bottle, its aesthetic appearance and its mechanical performance, also passes through the quality of the material with which it is achieved. Often, in fact, a good design collides with an improper use of materials that turn out not to be suitable to the liquid or interfere with the barrier properties that the liquid inside needs to maintain unchanged. Badly chosen materials may even react unexpectedly when combined with a certain colorant.
San Vendemiano 9 July 2015 - Ferrarelle SpA, Italian mineral water bottling company, owner of the Ferrarelle, Vitasnella, Boario, Santagata and Natia brands launched Fonte Essenziale in March, a mineral water of thermal origin with beneficial effects on the hepatobiliary and intestinal systems, the most important of the waters administered at the Terme di Boario for hydropinic treatments.
