Design and Manufacturing of Form & Trim Tooling for an Oversized Deli Container

Design & Manufacturing of Prototype Tooling for the Packaging Industry

A major producer in the packaging industry approached Omnitool to design and manufacture form and trim tooling for an oversized deli container lid with an outside diameter of 18.0". This tool forms product from OPS sheet and therefore requires the plugs to be heated to eliminate sheet chilling while encouraging better flow and distribution of material. The tool is designed to run in an Irwin Magnum former and trim press.

2 A Our large machining centers limit setups and provide a more accurate part. These large plug assists were turned in-house and polished to prevent ghosting.
2 B All tools are rigorously tested prior to shipping. That includes a full test of the electrical/heater system.
2 C All of our dies are tested in a die handler. Paper cuts are produced prior to shipping. These paper cuts are shipped with the tool to provide proof of the performance.

For more information on this design and manufacturing project, please see the details below.
