Livonia, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/28/2014 -- Good packaging design is critical to part protection and maintaining part quality through the supply chain. Sarah Cunningham, Trilogiq USA’s Marketing Manager explained on the company’s blog, as manufacturers move toward kitting and more sophisticated methods of internal logistics integration with their production operations, packaging is moving away from one-time designs created and provided by a central team to a more iterative process that involves actual users and local resources.
Cunningham noted, “Historically, the packaging design process for custom, lower volume solutions was a very manual operation – tracing parts, hand cutting the packaging material, and working to improve the result after physical testing. This led to quality concerns – poor tolerances, limited material choices that did not match the parts to be handled and delayed lead times – physical solutions took time to be reverse engineered by the end supplier of the production packaging.”
Trilogiq USA’s Light Box System solves those problems. The Light Box provides a quick, easy way to turn part layouts into CAD designs which can then be quickly manufactured into physical prototypes, and production quantities once validated. All work with the Light Box can be done right in your facility, so concerns about non-disclosure and sending parts to the vendor are eliminated.
Trilogiq USA’s Light Box Rental makes profiling tools and parts much easier because customers create customized visual I.D. tool boards, error-proofing shadow board and part protection trays simply and affordably.
