New Carton / Case Size?
Many of our clients are being very active in trying new packaging ideas to stand out from the competition. These new ideas mostly include new carton sizes to either accommodate new artwork or new product configurations. New carton size often demands acquiring new changeover parts for the machine or some kind of upgrade or modification.
Efficiency is one of our key values, and we want to make sure that all the changes needed to run a new carton size are conducted in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
In the best case scenario, we provide change-over parts and the client can run the new carton without any trouble.
However, since we see ourselves as your long-term partner, it is our obligation to point out that this process is not always that simple. Sometimes, a newly designed carton is outside the limits of our clients’ current machine and this can be challenging. There are two usual ways to solve this challenge.
- The client can redesign the carton
- We can make major modifications to the machine to accommodate the new carton.
Although this second solution may seem more appropriate from the clients’ perspective, it is usually the least efficient solution.
In most cases, if major modifications are made, the change-over requires many new parts and tooling and the change-over might require the assistance of our professionally trained Technicians. Then, if a client wants to revert back to running the other cartons that ran on the machine before, it can be difficult, expensive and it results in prolonged downtime.
We are your full-service supplier, so in order to avoid all of the uncertainty, delays and unnecessary expense, contact us first, before designing a new carton! The sooner you involve us in the process, the better. Together we can find the best option for your new carton size based on the capacities of your current machines.
So, if you are thinking of running a new carton size or case configuration, don’t hesitate to consult us.
