Inspection of your production machinery
Following the briefing session, we may inspect your production machinery which will accommodate the packaging. This helps us understand the technical specs you need to be met. This is because the real challenge in implementing a new packaging concept is having the packaging items make it through the raising and filling plants without causing trouble.
2. Computer-assisted packaging design
In the next step, your packaging/display is drafted on the computer, for which our experts use cutting-edge CAD software. CAD means computer-aided design. We craft packaging from corrugated cardboard and POS displays in 2D and 3D. This is to help you get an idea how the final packaging will look like, how it must be palletised, and what physical characteristics it has.
Having said that, it is not the technology and the tools that make the difference here. Rather, it is the creative minds who develop an innovative, classy design based on your requirements. We use drafts on hand-drawn sketches to catch spontaneous ideas. Packing concentrated brain power, creativity and innovative capacity, we then use these to create sophisticated 3D designs that will showcase your brand message to maximum effect.
The design phase sees us framing, planning and calculating possible alternatives across all levels of optimisation. In many cases, the outcome of this elaborate development and design process is an award-winning solution: GISSLER & PASS has earned multiple national and international awards for singular display and packaging solutions.
We are well-versed in markets and trends. We make our customers’ challenges our mission, in which we see ourselves as a “long arm”. Our demanding standards as to quality, customer orientation and flexibility, together with our partnership-driven approach to dealing with our customers are at the heart of what we do. In other words: We treat you as equals and take your suggestions, requests and feedback very seriously.
This is the reason why we always provide a digital prototype first so that you can make suggestions for modifications, if any. Based on this feedback, we then set out to modify the packaging as necessary. By this concerted approach, we keep optimising the product until we’ve achieved a flawless result.
Once the computer-assisted development stage is completed, we craft a so-called prototype for you, which is the very first example of your nascent packaging/display series. We will be happy to give a personal presentation of the result of this entire process so that you can examine the prototype yourself. Once you have given the green light, the prototype goes through various tests for quality assurance. This includes, amongst other things, shipping tests designed to he stability of the design. It is also possible to perform pre-production trial orders to make sure that the newly designed packaging runs smoothly on your line.
4. Serial production
In the next step, your packaging/display goes into series production: We produce the required quantity at our plants in Jülich and Rodenberg, the duration depending on the degree of utilisation and complexity. When placing the order, we give you an estimate when you can expect your batch to be shipped.
