Good News of the Week
This week a good example of how the competences of metal construction & system construction complement each other ideally.
Last spring, the Belper packaging specialist Alupak paid us a visit. Among other things, this company also fills coffee capsules for Nespresso. For filling with coffee and closing with a silicone joint, the still empty capsules are placed in a holding plate. This is reusable and barcoded so that the manufacturing process of each batch can be accurately tracked. Until now, Alupak has purchased the retaining plates directly from the machine manufacturer. But during his visit he found out that we can produce the sheets about one third cheaper.
Due to intensive cooperation with our quality management, it was fortunately discovered early enough that the customer had sent us an incorrect drawing. Some samples were created for process optimization. Thanks to the acquisition of new tools, laser cutting could be shortened from approx. 30 minutes to approx. 7 minutes, in line with our motto: We are the fastest. In the meantime, the customer has released the samples and placed the first order. A cooperation of up to 10 years was envisaged.
The decisive factor for the customer is that we provide him with a Provide sustainable and cost saving solution. We remove the barcodes from the plates that have reached the end of their service life and continue to use them for the new plates. The same applies to the adapters that make it possible to stack the sheets.
