In particular, the kp team will share how the expanded services allow medical device packaging development to move from design to prototype production in shortened time frames. "This speed to production affords multiple iterations of design and material adjustments to take place quickly and easily. What once could have taken months of design, testing and feedback, can now be accomplished in weeks," states Hans-Dieter Laux, kp's Business Director for Medical Device Films.
Klöckner Pentaplast's services help package designers, engineers and technicians explore the effects of tool geometry, film types and process conditions, as well as predict the protective barrier properties of the final package without running line trials. Advanced modeling tools allow package design to be optimized for stability and material distribution. Pentamed® BlisterPro® XCEL's capabilities are supported by in-house finite element analysis and tooling and thermoforming expertise to help ensure optimal package design. Once packaging production is underway, Pentamed® BlisterPro® XCEL services can provide manufacturing consultation, on-site troubleshooting and training to increase line efficiency, speed and quality.
Those interested in creating the perfect package for their product are invited to visit with kp team members at the show and explore how they can join in all stages of the Pentamed® BlisterPro®
XCEL process. Through the collaborative approach, packaging professionals can expect comprehensive evaluation of existing package design and material; explorations of new package designs; greater understanding about packaging design optimization and efficiency benefits through production process improvement.
