Berlin Packaging,a global leader in packaging solutions for food and beverage, home care, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals is developing innovative designs at Studio 111.
The Chicago based Studio 111 is a Berlin Packaging subsidiary that offers designs and prototyping services for packaging. Their prototypes let businesses quickly view and make decisions on various packaging choices. In turn, this method allows customers to see mistakes with packaging early on, which helps businesses avoid errors in order to make the right choices.
Through moving from sketching on paper to 3D prototyping customers can now make more informed decisions by holding the actual prototype in their hands. Studio 111 needed a very close likeness to the final product. At the same time speed was of the essence and costs had to be manageable as well.
Studio 111 selected EnvisionTEC’s 3SP technology due to the many materials available which enable the company to mimic many materials and finishes. Especially exciting for them is EnvisionTEC’s E-Glass 3D print material, which lets Studio 111 quickly and relatively inexpensively get the look and feel of glass in their prototypes.
“We do a lot of things in glass, we do a lot of high end spirits these days and an E-Glass clear model looks so much more exciting,” said Director of Engineering Martin Rathgeber.
Compared to traditional technologies such as milling and CNC, 3D printing with EnvisionTEC is saving Studio 111 time. The team deploys both an EnvisionTEC Perfactory XXL and Xtreme3SP which gives them the flexibility to run multiple jobs and multiple materials at the same time. For a list of all of the materials that Studio 111 has access to – look here. Both machines have high reliability and can run throughout the night outside of office hours.
Studio 111 can provide its customers with a wide selection of material choices due to EnvisionTEC’s enormous range of finishes and materials. Sample parts can be created relatively inexpensively and quickly in many iterations. These various iterations can all be given to customers for feedback, so they can go to production with the perfect packaging solution that fit their needs.
