A customer from the packaging industry approached Omnitool to design and manufacture Prototype tooling for a meat packaging prototype prior to investing in production tooling. A prototype of this nature is used to test the market reaction and to test performance through the automation systems. We typically create prototypes of this nature in two weeks.

Tooling for the Packaging Industry

The product surfaces were built from a customer supplied 2d data base using Alias Design software. Then it was incorporated into an previous tooling design that was done in Cadkey. Photo realistic renderings were produced to secure our customer’s approval prior to cutting aluminum.

Tooling for the Packaging Industry

The cavities were contact cooled and coated with Teflon. The tool also had a spring loaded ejector plate due to the undercuts in the stack lugs.

Tooling for the Packaging Industry

The prototool was designed to work within our customer’s prototype former where they can quickly change out tooling. The tool had a clamp plate driven off of pneumatic cylinders and the plug was cut from syntactic foam to minimize heat transfer.

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