Cups For Shelf Stable & Refrigerated Foods

Zarpac has over twenty-five years of experience designing, integrating and installing full or partial packaging lines for products packed in cups, tubs, pails and JIBs.

Since completing and commissioning our first lines for these applications we have successfully completed over sixty (60) complete or partial cup, tub, pail and JIB line projects as well as over one-hundred related engineering support projects for companies in over twenty countries around the world.

These projects have supported plastic and composite containers with and without handles in a wide range of shapes including rounds, ovals, squares , rectangles, tapers and scrounds.

Multiple tub and pail projects have required innovative technologies for both filling and secondary packaging. As part of several of these turnkey projects, Zarpac also designed and built custom packaging machinery for new product applications including tandem case packers for non-stop operation and a complete manufacturing line for filling and packaging tubs containing premoistened sweeper pads for a leading disposable floor mop product line.
