Lids for every product and occasion
Emballator Lagan Plast has long developed packaging based on customer requirements and the demands placed on the packaging. This has resulted in packaging with tailor-made lids depending on e.g. the field of use and the requirements for storage and transport.
Emballator Lagan Plast’s goal is to develop and optimize its products based on customer requirements in order to create added value for every customer. For example, in creating solutions for all kinds of products, Lagan Plast has produced 10 different kinds of lid for 10 litre pails in the Emsafe series, all based on the demands the customer’s product makes on the lid.
Developments often take place under time pressure. A typical example is the ESS lid model. The starting point was a customer complaint where pails rode up over each other and became deformed.
Following an investigation, the problem could be traced to rail transportation. With the aid of measuring equipment it was deduced that the problem occurred during shunting when very high G forces were generated when the goods wagons were hitched together.
Based on these findings and a number of tests with different design solutions, Lagan Plast came up with the ESS lid. The unique characteristic in the lid is an internal guiding edge against the base of the pail above which stops it from moving towards the centre as filled pails usually do. When the stack falls back, the pail returns to its original position.
Further functions and design elements have been added to the ESS lid. There is a lip that prevents the contents from entering the ceiling group and this design was made more robust to withstand greater weight when stacking.
