|Customer - Bottle Closures
Production Volume - 24 / 7 Manufacturer
Geographic Base - Global
The customer wanted to improve turnaround time on development
tooling that produced samples used to prototype new closures.
Additionally the customer wanted to use Injection Molding
for prototyping rather than the production type Compression
Molding they were currently using.
Reduced lead times for prototype tooling and provide new tooling
allowing for over-molding using existing mold bases.
Working directly with the customer's Design and Manufacturing
Team PTD was able to develop a strategy that would meet the
customer's objectives. PTD designed tooling that used easily
found commercial components custom machined to meet design
criteria. Included were common tooling mold bases, inserts,
and slides to help with product change over.
Reduced tooling costs by 28% and changeover times while meeting
the customer's turnaround requirements. and by designing the
tooling We were also directed to decrease the change over
time from one type of closure to another in their R&D.
