Custom Molded Pulp – Development Process

process_thumbRollguard employs a simple and efficient 4-step development process to implement and ensure a successful protective packaging solution. Working together, it is possible to be in production within four weeks of the project start date.

Our 4-step process is as follows:

1. Analysis

Following our initial conversation we may ask for drawings, files, specifications and/or the product to be packaged. We have the flexibility to work in 3D files in SolidWorks, IGS, STEP and parasolid format. Once we have all pertinent information, a determination can be made as to the suitability of Type 1 – Heavy Wall Molded Pulp for your project.

2. Design

Utilizing your input and the drawings, files, specifications and/or product, concepts emerge and are presented for review in the form of a drawing/packaging assembly. Revisions to the drawing may follow.

3. Prototyping

Sample parts are generated for evaluation, discussion, and testing. If changes are required, additional samples may be generated unless it is mutually determined to implement those revisions in the production tooling.

4. Tooling and Manufacturing

Tooling is constructed in-house utilizing 3D printing technology to ensure accuracy and quality. Production parts are made and shipped within days of receiving a purchase order.
