Tube of the Year 2017

July 2017
Vienna/Wasungen
TUBEX Wasungen GmbH has been awarded with Tube of the Year Award.

Every year the European Tube Manufacturers Association (ETMA) awards the „Tube of the year“ in the categories plastic, laminate and aluminum tubes including prototypes. This year TUBEX Wasungen GmbH secured the award in the category plastic tube with „BC Fibre Force“, manufactured for Schwarzkopf & Henkel. Through the interaction of the coloured sleeve, different printing techniques and hot foil stamping emerges an aesthetic and premium form of packaging.

The coloured and semi-transparent sleeve displays a smooth gradient, which has been printed by off-set print in two colours. The high opacity at the seam enhances the contrast to the printed brand name and the transparency towards the cap offers  the customer a glance at the high-quality filling. To enhance the premium look and to protect the print a high gloss varnish was applied. The black and white text has been printed in silkscreen print. „This printing technique makes sure that even with smaller fonts in vigoures coulours the text is easy to read“, explains Jochen Braun (Managing Director), „and the silkscreen print adds a haptic element for the customeras well.“ The design is completed with a hot foil stamp print, which completes the overall high-class appearance of the tube. The matching colour of the metallic cap makes this tube an eye-catcher at the point of sale. With this tube Tubex demonstrates its superior competence in the manufacturing of plastictubes.

For 70 years Tubex has been one of the leading manufacturers in the packaging industry. TUBEX is the packaging specialist for aluminum aerosol cans, aluminum tubes, aluminum cartridges and plastic tubes for the cosmetics, pharmaceutical, food and technical industry. With two plants in Germany, one in Austria, Slovakia, Russia and Brazil Tubex has a global capacity of seven hundred mio. cans, one hundred mio. plastic tubes and more than one and a half billion aluminum tubes. Over 1700 people worldwide are working at the six production sides.

World Star Award 2017

May 2017
Düsseldorf/Rangendingen
World Star Award and Silver Award in the category sustainability for aluminum aerosol can PURITY by Tubex.

Tubex developed in 2015/2016 the first aluminum aerosol can without any lacquer or ink either on the inside or outside. “So far”, Leopold Werdich, Managing Director of Tubex points out, “inside and outside lacquer was required for the shaping process even for non-critical filling products. ”This true innovation has won all major packaging prizes in 2016 in the industry such as the Aerosol & Dispensing Award, German Packaging Award and the Aerobal World Aluminum Aerosol Can Award. The winning of one of these major awards is the entry to the World Star Award.

The ceremony took place in Düsseldorf on the occasion of one of the world’s major packaging trade fair, Interpack. The bigsurprise of the evening was the Special Awards in various categories such as Marketing, Sustainability and Presidents Award to name a few. Tubex was awarded the runner-upprize in the category sustainability. The WPO recognized Tubex ’innovative overall concept in aluminum aerosol can packaging, which reduces CO2 emission, solvents and energy consumption. Tubex managed to put their focus on sustainability and at the same time, enhanced the mechanical properties of this can, such as burst pressure. Every year the World Packaging Organization (WPO) honours the best packaging worldwide. This year 291 packaging solutions from around the world entered the competition. Japan and Germany took the lead in the award winning packaging with 20 and 18 World Star Awards respectively.

German Packaging Award 2016

September 2016
Rangendingen
Erneut geht der Deutsche Verpackungspreis an Tubex

Verpackungsspezialist Tubex freut sich, dass die Aerosoldose „Purity“ vom Deutschen Verpackungsinstitut in Berlin mit dem Deutschen Verpackungspreis in der Kategorie Wirtschaftlichkeit ausgezeichnet wurde.

Für diese Aluminiumaerosoldose wurde der bestehende Produktionsprozess so verändert und angepasst, dass zur Herstellung weder Lacke (innen und außen) verwendet werden. Bei der Standardherstellung musste bisher immer ein Innen- und Außenschutzlack zur Umformung eingesetzt werden. Beim neuen Herstellungsprozess werden Produktionsschritte eingespart und die verbliebenen neu angeordnet. „Die Vorteile der neuen Reihenfolge“ so Geschäftsführer Leopold Werdich, „sind unter anderem eine erhebliche Einsparung bei Energie und Ressourcen was eine deutlich geringere CO2 Emission zur Folge hat. Ebenso verringerte sich die Anlagenintensität durch den neuen Prozess“. Ein für die Kunden weiterer Vorteil besteht darin, dass passend dazu Dekorationsmöglichkeiten getestet werden, die es dem Kunden ermöglichen so schneller und flexibler auf die Anforderungen des Marktes zu reagieren. Leopold Werdich betonte, dass viele Mitarbeiter am Gewinn des Preises beteiligt waren und er stolz auf die Teamleistung sei.

Der international ausgeschriebene Deutsche Verpackungspreis steht unter der Schirmherrschaft des Bundesministers für Wirtschaft und Energie, Sigmar Gabriel, und wird alljährlich in Nürnberg vergeben. Dieses Jahr wurden insgesamt 213 Produkte in den verschiedenen Kategorien für den begehrten Preis eingereicht. Davon wurden 35 mit Preisen ausgezeichnet.

Surface 2015

July 2015
Rangendingen
TUBEX has been awarded with the runner-up prize at the „Oberfläche 2015 Award“ (Surface 2015 Award) by the renowned Fraunhofer Institute, Stuttgart for the development and industrial application of internal powder coating for aerosol cans.

The Fraunhofer Institute recognized the successful collaboration between TUBEX, TIGER Coatings and Beiersdorf AG. This  innovation not only excels in its ecological and economic features but also in its outstanding processing properties. The powder coating is applied under industrial conditions at a speed of up to 200 pieces per minute. A key technology is the thin film application (15-25μm) which offers high flexibility and precision as well as optimal material usage. Internal powder coating requires lower curing temperatures which in return have a positive effect on the energy balance. CO2 footprint is reduced in both production and application of the powder as it is absolutely solvent free which means zero VOC emissions. Good chemical resistance and very good porosity resultsare bringing further technical added value. The technical development of the internal powder coating and collaboration between TUBEX and TIGER Coatings is still ongoing in order to meet the future demands that may lie ahead. The jury is enthusiastic about the environmental sustainability of this application: „By using internal powder coating for aerosol cans in mass production a considerable reduction of solvents is accomplished in comparison with standard solvent-based internal lacquer.”
