CHALLENGE

A folding carton convertor approached us seeking a solution for the multitude of dies they were purchasing to produce similar products. The revolving door of seasonal and promotional designs on the Happy Meal carton required this convertor to purchase a different die frequently. While this is lucrative for their steel rule die supplier, it was making quite the hefty dent in the tooling budget for the convertor.

SOLUTION

IMPACT designed and manufactured a steel rule die that incorporated the folding carton perimeter cut with the versatility of a changeable insert. The customer could now re-use the die and only swap out the seasonal or promotional design on the insert. 

RESULTS

The customer was able to reduce the number of dies used from 5 down to 1 for this in particular project, however the concept was applied to numerous similar projects that followed. What if we could help you consolidate your tooling costs considerably by applying this solution?
