This is Arcwise

Arcwise® is a unique packaging technology that for the first time entails curved shaped corrugated board packaging. The technology provides premiumization of packaging and attraction in point of sale. At the same time, Arcwise® has a significant lightweighting potential, which can substantially reduce carbon footprint. Different Arcwise® packaging solutions are adapted for automatic erecting and filling.



Carlsberg’s New Fibre Bottle is shipped in curved SCA Arcwise packaging

We at SCA Arcwise were honored when Carlsberg

Group asked us to develop the packaging for their New Fibre Bottle. The latest version of the Fibre Bottle is now fully bio-based (apart from the cap) and recyclable.The bottle is made of an interior of PEF polymer lining and an outer shell of wood fibres. The Generation 2 design was launched in June 2022 and will be sampled to costumers and other selected stakeholders in Carlsberg’s largest trial to date throughout the summer. The development of the Fibre Bottle is a pioneering step in driving sustainability forward and complements the ideas behind the Arcwise packaging concept, which is about optimal use for wood fibres.

How it works

The Arcwise® packaging concept can be realized in conventional corrugated board machinery and subsequent printing and die-cutting equipment and does not involve significant investments. Arcwise® packaging can be shipped flat from corrugated packaging producers to brand owners (fillers) and attain a curved shape in the erecting/filling process. In Point-Of-Sales, attractive curved shaped packaging designs are set to boost sales among brand owners.
