Tooling is arguably the most critical part of the custom thermoforming process. For this reason, there is always a need to be perfect by ensuring all design specifications are met to avoid project delays that can increase operational costs. If you are looking to avoid expensive and time-consuming fixes that are often synonymous with third-party tool makers, consider keeping the design and tooling processes in-house. Working with outside tool makers for crucial projects requires significant back-and-forth communication, which may lead to misinterpretation at best and costly oversights at worst.
Here are a few notable reasons to work with in-house designers and toolmakers for all your packaging design processes:
In this age of data breaches and security leaks, entrusting your designs and prototypes to third parties may not be the most advisable partnership to make. When you work with in-house designers and toolmakers, you make your operations that much more secure. By keeping your prototyping in-house, you remain in control of the intellectual property and all the development processes.
In-house prototyping and tooling allow you to set the speed of your design processes and delivery. Moreover, you get a chance to monitor and assess the processes in real-time so that you turn around the project quicker than when using typical outsourcing.
More Design Freedom
When you create your own in-house processes, you get a chance to unleash your imagination! Ideally, you enjoy more design freedom and an opportunity to incorporate personalized ideas at every stage of the process.
Refined Competitive Edge
Establishing in-house processes gives you an upper hand over your competition. Your processes will take less time to complete, meaning you can quickly present a solution to the market. Any design changes that need to be made can be executed faster with a higher degree of reliability.
