When certain environmentalists, consumer rights activists and even the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in India voiced their apprehensions on PET (polyethylene terephthalate) technology being used for packaging of food products and medicines, scientists conducted extensive studies to nullify such fears. The findings of these authentic studies as well as global certifications reiterated that PET bottles are safe for pharmaceutical packaging. The All India Plastics Manufacturers Association also echoed the message that the Indian standards at times are more stringent than international standards.
Simultaneously, the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) in association with Strategy&, the monitoring wing of global market survey and consultant, Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) also undertook a study on the proposal to impose a ban to restrict the use of plastics for packaging of all FMCG and non-essential items. Their observation was that an outright ban on use of polymer based materials like PET for packaging is not a prudent solution to address the concerns raised. Continue reading
No sooner than the summer sets in, the demand for bottled water and assorted beverages touches new heights when the mercury rises in the peak sultry months with each passing day. It is at this juncture the mold making company becomes more prominent in catering to the needs of the bottling units spread across the length and breadth of India. It is the products and services provided by such an enterprise that the people are able to moisten their parched gullets and quench their thirst.
Yes, with the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottling technology almost replacing glass, ceramics and other materials, the mineral or filtered water and every beverage is packed in PET based containers. And in the making of every PET bottle or jar, the PET preform molds, cavitation molds, mold inserts, mold bases, plastic injection molds, cap molds and thin wall molds are very crucial. On this score, a reputed company like ACME Delhi NCR happens to be the hub for the production of these exclusive products.
This company named Acme Disys has mastered the art of tooling excellent quality range of mold inserts and bases. These are designed, developed and manufactured from high grade quality raw materials like imported standard steel as per the bottling unit or customer’s specifications. They may vary in terms of cavitation capacities. As for ensuring top quality and durability of every product, expert engineers and technicians randomly and accurately check every single input of raw materials to the finished product.
Plastic Mold manufacturers of any type of mold need to optimize the process of costing. This helps moldmakers significantly to improve product quote accuracy and fasten Request for Quote (RFQ) response as well. It’s a no less than a challenge for moldmakers to come up with cost effective methodology of production. To achieve accuracy in product cost quotes is difficult, but possible.
The challenge for offering savings and efficiencies requires moldmakers to include the need for:-
- Reduced overhead costs – Turning around a detailed, inaccurate quote can be time consuming and expensive as well.
- Increased precision – Many mold manufactures fail to understand the costing process of molds. Understanding the costing process is not an easy task. Mould manufacturers have to focus on the moldmaking procedure. To be aware of every nook and cranny of the mold-making process adopted is essential to gauge its effectiveness. Existing quote is liable to have discrepancies with actual costs, if you lack the know-how of the moldmaking process. It is very important to have a clear knowledge of the actual costs of molds. Such understanding is necessary for winning fresh, profitable business.
- Faster response times – The capacity to shift quotes is a notable competitive edge for many moldmakers. However, for shifting quotes, a moldmaker has to have a lot of cutting-edge tools and technologies.
