There are numerous reasons for developing custom-made plastic containers. Sometimes the container has to be adapted to the shape and dimensions of the transported goods, sometimes high demands are made on transport safety, in retail the container has to present the goods in the market, and more and more often the special requirements of automated warehouses have to be met. WALTHER Faltsysteme is a specialist in customising plastic containers. This is not least due to our process chain, which is flexible up to series production and in which the result is compared with the customer's requirements at every intermediate step.
The starting point for the development of a new container is the individual requirement profile of the supply chain and the goods to be transported. Only if we understand these requirements perfectly, we can develop an optimal solution for you. These initial, intensive briefings are followed by the design phase. In this phase, we produce first freehand sketches or 3D representations on CAD basis, which offer a basis for discussion, always presenting different approaches for a solution.
Once the design phase is completed, prototyping takes us to the core of custom-made container development. Prototypes bring security, trust and, as a rule, time savings on the way to series production. There are three different ways to produce prototypes:
