Thin gauge thermoformed blister.
Thin gauge thermoformed blisters in PET, PC, PP, PE, PS or ABS is often called blister packaging and is normally used as disposable packaging in larger volumes. The plastic material is on a reel. Material is fed over a tool where it's formed and punch to the final design.
Diesel Injector blister with cover
Blister used for CNC-turning inserts
Nycopac is using this technique for the following type of products:
- Disposable Lid for KLT boxes. The dust lids are used to protect the contents of the box from moisture, dust and other particles. Unlike the injection molded lid, normally provided by the producer of the boxes, the Nycopac lid is made to be stacked in same way as a box without a lid. This makes the boxes stackable without increasing in height. If the box has to be washed, it can be done much easier and cheaper without using the provided standard cover. After washing, just put on a new lid, this usually save the entire cost of the disposable lid. Nycopac are today delivering blister lids in large volumes to the VDA RL-KLT. Our flexible construction designers can easily develop a tailor made tool to any other box types.
- Small blisters as clam shells and boxes. Nycopac are manufacturing all kinds of blister packagings for transporting, storage and displaying of small items. It can be anything from the actual retail packaging box to smaller boxes for transporting small parts between different production units. Increasing of the thickness of the boxes will make them very strong and usable as returnable boxes.
- Interlayers, trays and spacers by changing the thickness of the material and using the same tool, Nycopac can produce roll blisters up to half pallet size for both disposable and returnable packaging at very low prices. Our customers use rollformed blister spacers and lids for single use when the cleanliness requirements are high and washing is very expensive. Our client also use disposable packaging when return transport are not possible.
- Half pallet lids – Reusable and for one time use. With the thin gauge thermoforming technology, we can produce half pallet lids at very low prices compared to the techniques currently used (vacuum forming and injection molding) and it’s appropriate when the production volumes are high.
