It all starts with an idea –
we pack anything
Whether it's a sustainable food tray or creative display - in keeping with our motto, "We pack anything", our flexible development teams will accept any challenge and they excel with some highly innovative ideas.
We adapt to
Specific product characteristics mean a custom approach must be taken for your transport, product and gift packaging or for your secondary placement. We handle this by developing individually designed products for you. Over 30 specialist designers work in eight development centres at our European sites to fulfil all your packaging needs. Our creative team experiments, designs and tinkers – always keeping a focus on key factors such as technical feasibility and handling properties.
We are flexible and
product oriented in our design processes
Our development departments use a wide variety of cardboard, solid board and corrugated board grades. Does your packaging need to protect medical devices during transport? Or perhaps you are an automotive supplier who needs a small load carrier for your production, which is easy to set up yet extremely sturdy? We create the optimum solution for you - made from the most suitable material with as little waste as possible from the die cutting process, alongside optimised pallet usage.
We also develop virtually –
with CAD-based development
If you provide us with a 3D file of your product prototype, we can design the perfect packaging with excellent dimensional accuracy – without needing to actually hold your packaged goods in our hands. A digitised process can also speed up the decision-making process. By assessing the packaging or virtually assembled display in digital form before the sample is constructed, as a PDF or image file for example, you can request changes immediately or approve the virtual sample.
From the initial idea
to the finished product
The first sketch
If there is no clearly defined design from the beginning, we sketch out a "scribble" (basic design) to determine what direction the product development should take. This makes it easier to weigh up the pros and cons.
The CAD design
The second stage involves transferring the scribble to a CAD system, which presents the sample in 3D format. This allows you to consider the functionality and also identify any design errors.
The white sample
The CAD design forms the basis for the white sample. This is where the plotter comes into play, which grooves and cuts the sheets of corrugated board. Once the sample is finished, the product developer re-works it if necessary, glues it and tests it for its intended function.
The finished packaging
Finally, the sample is presented to the customer. It will be used for testing purposes (e.g. filling and load tests) or as a reference for an order.
