ALPLA is set to introduce a new beverage valve closure system that dispenses liquids only when vacuum or mechanical pressure is applied to an elastic mouthpiece.
This no-spill system was developed by Norway’s valve technology company SmartSeal while ALPLA was exclusively responsible for manufacturing this solution from the outset.
Through the latest collaboration, ALPLA now aims to further scale up the production of this solution by taking over all SmartSeal tools and assembly lines at its Fußach facility in Vorarlberg, Austria, starting this month.
This effort will allow ALPLA to integrate the closure system into its own product range to offer more options to its global customers.
The company is also intensifying its efforts to develop new tools that will reduce material consumption during the closure system’s manufacturing process.
ALPLA Fußach plant head Daniel Gut said: “The history of no-spill closure so far has been promising. Now, we are taking the next step and capitalising on our strengths as a global system provider.

“We want to exploit the enormous potential this offers us and can triple our production straight away.”
ALPLA’s no-spill beverage closure keeps the liquid sealed from the inside at up to 2.7 bar bottle pressure.
It is a child-friendly solution that can offer protection against leaks and splashes.
The solution is available for various neck finishes in nine different colours.
Customers can also customise these colours. This is applicable only when the order is above a specific number of units.
