Design and technical expertise
Our expertise for your benefit
Nampak Plastics works with customers to understand their needs and offer a unique product design and development service.
Whether working independently to a written brief, or in partnership with a client or design agency, the Nampak design team will play an integral role in helping customers achieve the optimum solution for their packaging requirements.
Through the use of sophisticated computer aided design and manufacture software (CAD/CAM), modelling facilities and finite element analysis, Nampak is able to predict the strength and characteristics of new designs. As a result, pack shape, size and functionality can be thoroughly evaluated and optimised prior to prototype production.
