Ampac introduces the Design and Sample Lab (DASL) for quick delivery of custom sample concepts and technologies.

DASL (pronounced dazzle) design laboratory is located at Ampac’s headquarters in Cincinnati, OH.It houses new equipment and capabilities for design, art, printing, and production of one-off or small quantities of commercial-quality premade pouch prototypes of new concepts. DASL also creates new design modifications or new art for consumer, packaging, or marketing evaluations.

With the introduction of DASL, Ampac is able to deliver custom, commercially printed pouch concepts and prototypes to customers with exceptional speed, allowing the evaluation of new designs, art, and shapes in a commercial format within days rather than weeks.It also accelerates the time for sizing and evaluating design and art prior to manufacturing.

According to the vendor, the DASL is unique because customer brands can now use the new capabilities and equipment of design and sample making from a flexible packaging manufacturer that has the materials know-how and the capacity to create and seal pouches representing commercially produced pouches.This provides proof of concept and the ability for packaging development, marketing, and manufacturing to evaluate new package designs as they would appear in their plant (for filling) and at retail. In addition, manufacturability and filling capability are taken into consideration for uniquely designed pouches so samples are real-world and able to be commercialized.
