Paper & Board Mechanics
What is it?
We use design insights from the field of mechanical engineering to re-invent corrugated board. With state of the art experimental and modelling research, we can improve current or develop new paper, board or packaging products.
Packaging performance depends on packaging and corrugated board design. At Smurfit Kappa we use insights from mechanical engineers to design our lightweight, strong and protective structure. We evaluate the box and board characteristics and compare them with millions of board samples, to validate if we can create the same performance with a smarter composition. Our scientific approach guarantees cost effective and risk free solutions.
How will it benefit you?
Our pioneering scientific approach to performance packaging creates a platform for ongoing innovation, consistent efficiency improvements and optimisation that can’t be matched. Our approach gives you, the customer a competitive advantage with fit-for-purpose and innovative packaging solutions.
