Tittle:
Advanced simulation services for packaging development
Summary:
A French SME offers test, design and engineering services to support innovation in the field of packaging. This company uses advanced computer simulation techniques to test the performance of any new packaging concepts without making any long or expensive physical test. Industrial partners interested in technical or research cooperation agreement are sought.
Description:
The mission of this French company is to design, asset and optimize the new packaging concepts, in order to guarantee that they will meet the functional, technical, economic and environmental requirements. Founded by a former manager of the R-Y-D centre in a major worldwide leading food company, the company uses state of the art techniques in modelling -Y- simulation solutions.
The company addresses any type of packaging, regardless the application (food, cosmetics, household products, medical, etc.), the raw material (plastic, glass, cardboard) or manufacturing process (blow moulding, thermoforming, injection, etc.)

The services of the company include:
- Qualification of new packaging design: will the new design meet the technical requirements?
- Optimization of design: which improvements could be made to meet the target?
- Audit and performance improvement (of existing packaging portfolio)
- Light weighting and material cost savings
- CO2 footprint reduction (bio-based materials, energy savings, etc.)
- Industrial launches guidelines and troubleshooting

The modelling and simulation solutions (virtual packaging pilot) include :
- Mechanical performance analysis: top-load, side-load, resistance to CO2 pressure, drop-testing, burst,etc.
- Forming process analysis: injection, thermoforming, stretch blow moulding, etc.
- Consumer usage simulation: opening peelability, hand-grip, stability on a table, etc.

The company is committed to build a bridge between the industry and the academic research to develop dedicated simulation techniques to address the latest and emerging needs of the industry.

Technical or research cooperations with packaging suppliers and designers are sought.
Advantages and Innovations:
The value created by the company services is concrete,measurable and sustainable :
- Economic benefits: reduction of raw materials costs, light weighting. For example the SME helped a major PET bottle manufacturer to reduce by 18% the use of PET for its oil bottle, saving 400 tons per year consequently.
- Secured launches and reduced risks
- Sustainability: CO2 footprint reduction, less fossil resources,
- Reduction of the time-to-market
- Innovation: iconic design, shapes, materials
- Competitiveness: optimal and efficient solutions
- Specific numerical techniques : FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics (FEA).
- Scientific and technical credibility. The French start-up already collaborates with major leaders of food industry.
