Cases are formed with precision by shaping them around a mandrel, resulting in the highest level of accuracy and consistency. This precision forming improves the efficiency of the entire packing line due to more reliable case filling, perfect case closing and straight stack palletization. This results in better pack performance, minimizing any supply chain risk.

The SKMF 146 also offers brands owners the flexibility to change the design of their packaging to maximize shopper impact in-store, where 82% of purchase decisions are made. It can fold cases with 4, 6 or 8 corner designs, in various shapes so brand owners can modify existing packs.
