Tetra Pak launches ebeam-equipped filling machine platform "E3" at Fispal 2015

At the Fispal trade fair running June 23-26, 2015 in São Paulo, Brazil, Tetra Pak announces the global launch of the ebeam-equipped E3 platform of filling machines.

The use of electron beam allows Tetra Pak's customers to reduce their environmental impact while at the same time increase production speed and reduce operating costs.
