R&D/Leverage's New Opti-Sim Virtual Prototyping Tool Saves Time and Money for PET Packaging Industry -- and Reduces Waste
Date:8/8/2012

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- R&D/Leverage's new Opti-Sim Virtual Prototyping process, which lets PET packagers anticipate a bottle concept's impact on engineering, operations and marketing, is now available from this leading global idea-to-mold provider.

According to the company's Vice President of Engineering, Dave Brunson, Opti-Sim unlocks R&D/Leverage's 35 years of PET packaging experience, and -- by performing a complete range of diagnostic, real-world simulations addressing myriad variables -- speeds time-to-market, cuts tooling and prototyping costs and enhances sustainability for both new and existing designs.

"Opti-Sim lets our customers test before they invest," Brunson said. "It harnesses our decades of historical data on injection stretch blow packaging, represents years of development and delivers uncanny industry-specific knowledge for accuracy and efficiency superior to other virtual prototyping schemes."

According to Brunson, the amount of variables involved in the PET packaging process -- and the time and money invested -- enhance the appeal of Opti-Sim. "In today's marketplace, environment & speed-to-market is a critical consideration, as is cost efficiency," he said. "Our predictive analysis simulates variables such as top load and vacuum, light weight options to enhance sustainability, wall thicknesses, geometries and more. This capability represents tremendous value to our customers."

In addition, R&D/Leverage offers an entire spectrum of services, from virtual pre-testing to prototyping, tool development and full production molds. It is a holistic approach that enhances efficiencies and leads to brand-building package designs, in markets that include such sectors as beverages, food products, personal care products and more.

Added Senior Research Engineer Jeff Chen, "Other suppliers may have virtual prototyping software, but not our tool-making experience and certainly not our decades of industry-specific historical knowledge, which is 'baked into the cake' with Opti-Sim.

"The result is an accurate, predictive tool unlike any other service offered in the field," Chen said. "Opti-Sim represents yet another way that customers in the PET packaging space can benefit from our expertise -- in this case, to pre-determine how their bottle concepts will impact all their existing systems quickly and accurately."
