Keiding employs a simple and efficient 4-step development process to implement and ensure a successful protective packaging solution. Working together, it is possible to be in production within four weeks of the project start date.
Keiding pioneered the use of additive manufacturing using 3D printing technology to create tooling for the manufacture of molded pulp products. Our innovative tooling techniques enable us to transition directly from a 3D CAD file to a “printed” tool with accuracy and repetition. For detailed information regarding our tool building technique please visit the Fortus website.
Our 4-step process is as follows:
Following our initial conversation we may ask for drawings, files, specifications and/or the product to be packaged. We have the flexibility to work with 3D files in SolidWorks, IGS, STEP and parasolid format. Once we have all pertinent information a determination can be made as to the suitability of Type 1 – Heavy Wall Molded Pulp for your project.
Utilizing your input and the drawings, files, specifications and/or product, concepts emerge and are presented for review in the form of a drawing/packaging assembly. Revisions to the drawing may follow.
Sample parts are generated for evaluation, discussion and testing. If changes are required, additional samples may be generated unless it is mutually determined to implement those revisions in the production tooling.
4. Tooling and Manufacturing
Tooling is constructed in-house utilizing 3D printing technology to ensure accuracy and quality. Production parts are made and shipped within days of receiving a purchase order.
