Tetra Pak is one of the world’s largest suppliers of packaging systems for milk, fruit juice and drinks, and many other products.

The Challenge

Tetra Pak wanted to ensure the integrity of aseptic packaging by modeling the complex fluid-structure interaction of the filling and sealing process including packages, liquid, and machines.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Tetra Pak chose Abaqus to evaluate complexities of the packaging process. The Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian capability in Abaqus successfully models the entire packaging process within a single FEA model.

Benefits

The realistic packaging process model will help with development of new packaging and upgrades to existing machines.
