Tooling in-house cuts costs

Macpac’s in-house design and tooling (from a facility with CNC machining) not only reduces tooling costs but also adds flexibility to the whole process as there is a seamless link between design tooling and manufacturing.

The design engineering team use SolidWorks 3D software that allows complex three-dimensional imagery to be produced to meet the customer’s brief. It can even incorporate a product into the design to give a photorealistic image of how a finished pack would look complete with product. Customers find this useful to appreciate the full potential of the design plus the value it provides for marketing presentations prior to product launches. On-line access speeds up decision making and ultimately lead times. The design team frequently adds value through its experience by offering advice.
