Arcwise®: the box that follows the shape of your product
“Surveys show that rounded shapes are generally preferred over the angular ones”
The perfect pack adherence to the product is an important competitive advantage for food & beverage manufacturers. Thanks to the rounded design, it is possible to realize cardboard packs with a unique aspect and captivating graphics that is not interrupted in the corners, but continues without interruptions on all pack edges, Furthermore, rounded boxes are easy to store and feature greater robustness and resistance to loads, thanks to their unique curved shape.
These premises led to the development of Arcwise® technology, created by the Swedish company Sca Forest Products that focused on environmental sustainability and weight resizing. Arcwise® cardboard, that can be used on case packers and multipack packers produced by SMI in order to create wrap-around boxes or cardboard clusters, employs raw materials that fully derive from renewable sources, thus allowing companies that make use of them to improve the standards of environmental compatibility in their production.
Why interrupting your brand with an edge?
