Improved quality, integration of new functions and consumer friendly handling, all to be matched with the Brand’s familiar design!; this was the wish list from Hela Gewürzwerk Herman Laue (www.hela.eu), when briefing Rosti Packaging for the re-design of their flip top closure for the famous German ketchup. However topping the list was the request for high quality print on the top of the cap.
The printing of the closure was a big challenge especially as the quality of the print requested meant that latest tool designs had to be employed to eliminate slip agents thus ensuring the highest definition for direct print. Since the cap is aligned with the bottle, the printing must also be aligned. Bringing this together with a 2 colour design and high volume production meant that a bespoke solution had to be sought. Rosti Packaging engineers developed a new handling system in order to align the closure and because one colour is printed on top of the other the desired quality was achieved.
Following successful tests and the start of quantity production Rosti Packaging is the first injection moulder that can offer customers the new technology.
