LiquiForm Group Announces New Development Partner
The LiquiForm Group, Ann Arbor, MI/USA, has entered into a technology licensing agreement with Krones AG, Neutraubling, Germany, to further develop and commercialize LiquiForm’s forming and filling manufacturing technology. Krones AG is a global manufacturer of filling and packaging equipment.
“With the LiquiForm technology, Krones has an opportunity to build on existing bottling technology, intellectual property and know-how to develop unique industrial solutions for improving the total cost of ownership for our customers even further,” said Dr. Christian Compera, Head of Bottling Technology at Krones AG.
LiquiForm technology combines container forming and filling processes into a single step. The technology uses liquid product instead of compressed air to form a rigid plastic container, a process which offers an opportunity for more sustainable and efficient operations as compared to traditional blow and fill technology.
“We are pleased to have Krones as a licensee, given its history of technology and innovation leadership in processing, filling and packaging,” said Ashish Saxena, Vice President and General Manager of The LiquiForm Group. “Adding to the existing efforts of Sidel, Amcor, and Yoshino, Krones will aid the technology commercialization and enable LiquiForm to reach its full potential.”
