In the last decades Qbig has built reputation with it’s fitments, making use of in-house R&D, own patented technologies, in combination with a modern and certified production. These capabilities are not only used in Qbig’s own portfolio, but more and more in custom made products. Making use of our experience and market knowledge we can partner-up and develop new customer-unique packaging products or concepts, based on customer-unique requirements.
For a packaging manufacturer active in high viscous products such as in the mining industry we have developed a unique 3 inch valve. The valve is developed making use of our patented and proven CST-technology, also applied in our DN50-S valve. Making smart combinations and listening to customer input has led to a unique valve that could seamlessly be added to the customer’s portfolio. And not just as portfolio filling; but as a flagship of their solution.
In Modified Athmospere Packaging (MAP), we have developed the CAT-40 valve. Using this tiny fitment in a bag of seeds, tobacco, nuts etc. can be extremely value adding. The CAT-technology within this product allows to release the oxygen, replace by nitrogen or carbon-dioxide and therewith extend the shelflife of the packaged product.
A glucose trader developed a brand new concept to pack, transport, re-liquify and re-pack glucose. In this project a steer-and-heat machine was build to liquify glucose from it’s packaging. The steer and heat machine entered the packaging from the bottom, through an 8 inch hole and in this way made sure that the high-viscous glucose could optimally be discharged. The connecting fitment to be used on the packaging however was not yet designed. Qbig developed the concept, used well-known cuttable membrane technology in combination with it’s knowledge on 6 inch valve baseplates and realized a product that was the missing link in the packaging and machine connection.
