Function: A form tool transforms a flat material into a three-dimensional tray, designed to hold the product in a ‘pocket’ through the packaging line until it becomes an enclosed pack.
Toolrite Offering: Packs are designed, not only to securely protect and hold a product, but also to guarantee its formation on the packaging line, in an automated way. Consideration given to forming material, product shape, pocket dimension, repeats and pack layout. We can provide forming tools to accommodate a variety of products to meet your needs.
Using Coldform tooling is necessary for some materials. These materials offer the best protection for your product; increases barrier performance and pack shelf life. With knowledge of industry leading forming materials we are able to design and manufacture tooling that optimises forming performance.
The use of heat and pressure to create a three dimensional tray. Our tools are manufactured to create uniform material thickness distribution such that we can achieve higher efficiency cavity filling and improved blister release even when running at high speeds.
Plug Assist Tooling
There are certain pack attributes that simply require plug assist tooling. When combined with appropriate low coefficient of friction materials and good pack design we can increase production from the unwind unit, all the way to make cartoning easier.
