Design and Prototyping
We have a deep engineering bench, including 13 design engineers with an average tenure of over 25 years. PI engineers and account managers work directly with clients to determine their exact requirements and create product packaging design solutions that precisely meet their needs. This constant customer interaction ensures clients receive the best possible solutions for their specific requirements. Additionally, our response time is the best in the industry, typically requiring only a three-day turnaround time on initial design proposals, and approximately seven days for delivery on most prototype models.
We came to PI with a unique design challenge, and we had an incredibly tight deadline. Not only did they beat our deadline, they gave us a product that solved problems we never knew existed.
— Joe Jacobus, Manager of Packaging Development
Ideation sessions are frequently utilized to ensure our customers are provided with the proper solution for their needs. Design ideation sessions typically include a cross-function Plastic Ingenuity team, on-site partner participation, multiple concept creations, post-session review, and presentation and merchandising assistance. Plastic Ingenuity also offers 3D merchandising software at no additional cost.
Cutting-Edge Design Tools
Plastic Ingenuity engineers have access to the latest technological innovations during the design process.
Digital calipers; hand-driven digitizers; five-axis, high-speed machining centers; fused deposition modeling capabilities; and a coordinate measuring machine provide solid support for the product packaging design effort. Advanced software programs, primarily SolidWorks, are available to help our packaging designers work smarter and faster. PI engineers can analyze products using in-house equipment or can work from drawings and specifications, depending on customer preferences and needs. PI’s design team creates unique packaging designs perfectly suited to clients’ products in form and function.
