We begin all of our projects with a basic, solution-oriented concept. Whether you give us a drawing on a napkin or a fully fleshed-out machine spec, we take your idea and convert it into a structurally sound and cost-effective reality.
At this important beginning stage of the design process, our project engineers will help you in the following key areas:
Once we’ve finalized the goals and objectives of your unique concept, we enter the crucial stage of engineering — this is where we make sure everything is going to work precisely as intended in the real world.
Our engineers carefully complete all due-diligence up front to:
We provide a ballpark number up front to make sure we’re all on the same page and that the project is going to be as good for your bottom line as it is for the items you want it to produce. We update budget numbers as requested before completing a final, firm, detailed quotation for all of the work required to make your vision a reality.
We integrate your electrical specifications, applicable safety standards and regulations, and approved components into our unique Electrical Automation Package.
Our engineering team will work with you throughout this phase of the design process to make sure the finished project meets or exceeds your needs and requirements by doing the following:
Here’s where we put it all together, fabricating your machine to precisely meet all of the exacting specifications we set in the first four phases of the design process.
The key milestones in this phase of the project include:
Since we’ve handled every step of the process in-house, we've fully tested the machines as they operate in exactly the same manner you plan to operate them in your facility. We welcome you to our shop during this process so you can see exactly how we put your machine through its paces.
Our start-up and commissioning process includes:
After your machine has passed our battery of tests, it’s time to bring it home.
We'll provide you with the following support during this final stage of the process:
IMPACT’s industry knowledge is deep and vast, with experience and solutions for the growing demands of its customers’ converting needs. The experts at IMPACT look several steps downstream at its customer’s customers. The company can create a “moment of impact” when the consumer sees its product. IMPACT gives them the resources of experience, knowledge, and solutions to create – their moment of impact.
Customers benefiting from IMPACT’s one-stop-shop offerings include large national integrators with 200-300 facilities producing a wide range of items. They gain efficiencies by having one company service them. Converting is more than just cutting a box – it’s also folding, creasing, scoring it, making an opening feature that will tear when it’s supposed to but not before. IMPACT has found that most converters will use a combination of means to convert, cut, crease, and fold material. IMPACT is incentivized to offer the best solutions that meet all its customers’ requirements.
We help create brilliantly designed, engineered dies, and systems.
