Vasa Brewery is happy about the new opportunities that Arcwise® offers.

“A great thing about Arcwise® is that we can introduce a breakthrough packaging design and still use our existing erecting and filling machine, hence, no specific investment costs were needed. Furthermore, since the material can be manufactured on a conventional corrugated machine we see that sourcing is not an issue,” says Niclas Nilsson CEO of Vasa Brewery.

In addition to the tray, Arcwise® has developed a new round shaped wrap around packaging solution that also performs well in existing filling machines,

Arcwise® represents a revolutionary innovation in corrugated packaging. For the first time in history, Arcwise® technology allows for bending of corrugated board. The technology provides the unique opportunity to integrate graphic design with curved shaped packaging while having the rigidity of corrugated board. A new world of innovative design opportunities along with superior packaging performance and sustainability are enabled. Due to the strength gained from the curved shape, up to 30% material savings are possible.  

The new technology is protected by international patents. SCA offers the technique to packaging manufacturers under license.
