Innovative Plant Offerings – Flute Combinations – C, B, E, A, F, D, BC, EB, AA, AC, AAC

Sustainability:

Pratt Industries packaging is proudly made from post-consumer recycled fiber and all lines are completely recyclable. Pratt Industries also strives to continually reduce paper weights to eliminate costly over-packaging as well as reduce the environmental impact.

Equipment:

It takes the best raw materials to consistently produce good boxes, so we continually invest capital to ensure our fleet of corrugators is among the best in the industry.

Our printing capabilities include a six-color large format die-cutter (66″x 125″) with two dryers. This machine is capable of 110-line screen printing with near pre-print quality.

Pre-print printing applications include one-ten colors, metallic/fluorescent inks, plus varnish and UV coatings. Exceptional detail and line screen work includes up to 150 line applications.

Our converting capabilities include die cutting, straight line and auto-bottom.

Retail Ready:

Retail Ready packaging consists of both unique structural and graphic characteristics that can help promote your product. The purpose of retail ready packaging is to increase customer awareness of your product through graphic messaging. Retail ready packaging also saves time and labor costs because product is ready to be put out for sale without having to be individually stocked.

D FLUTE – OUR LATEST INNOVATION

D Flute – Our Latest Innovation

D FLUTE is an innovative new type of corrugated fluting available from Pratt Industries that is a great option for many types of packaging. It provides for superior printing and offers cost advantages for today’s warehousing and material handling challenges.

D FLUTE can be used as a substitution for B Flute relative to the product and application.

Products similar to D FLUTE have been used successfully in Europe and are currently being used by Pratt Industries’ parent company in Australia. Applications include shelf ready packaging, wraparounds for self supporting packs and frozen foods, and lightweight trays.

What is D Flute?

D FLUTE is a flute profile that is smaller and closer together as compared to B flute.

Benefits of D Flute

  • Better Printing Surface
  • Supply Chain Savings
  • Environmental Savings
  • Improved Shelf Ready Functionality
  • 25% – 30% more boxes/unit versus “B” Flute
 
B Flute – 1000 cartons / pallet                        D Flute – 1250 cartons / pallet
                                                                   (approx volume utilizing same space)

CASE STUDY: YELLOW TAIL WINE

In Australia, Casella Wines, who exports 20% of Australia’s bottled wine products, has converted to D Flute and has taken advantage of the superb printing characteristics and increased appeal at point of sale. The strength of D Flute lends itself to be a great material for self supporting products.
