A Minnesota-based medical company that manufactures urological and urinary continence care products was searching for a solution to their existing thermoformed tray used to protect a medical product during shipping and handling.
In the existing tray, the medical part was sticking to the pouch used to seal the tray which decreased production rate and increased the number of rejects.
The new design created a more accurately detailed channel that was better suited to the medical part’s features – this prevented the part from sticking to the protective pouch.
Through innovative use of advanced technology, Placon virtually eliminated the rejects without increasing the packaging costs.
As a result, the medical manufacturer’s packaging rate and efficiency has increased creating cost savings. The newly designed tray makes the product easier for the patient to use.
