PITAC ensures reliably, efficiency and facilitates cost reduction to customers. We deal with a lot of different kinds of products. As an example Johnson & Johnson Pakistan (Pvt) Ltd, which offers one of the world’s largest range of consumer healthcare products, gave PITAC a work order (no. 26928) of a four cavity mold for one of their Lotion bottle and cap.
After few modification cycles succeeding the trial shot, the mold was ready to be delivered to customer.
This type of mold design was completely novel to PITAC and we took great pleasure to design this type of mold which took a great deal of specificity and astuteness. The customer also appreciated PITAC’s effort in making a successful product.
There were several intricacies that our design team had to face while designing and manufacturing the Bottle’s cap because it had to have a screw as well as a lid opening mechanism which had to be carefully thought of. This design made us face significant challenges because we had to use double sealed bearings (needle bearings) in conjunction with rack and pinion in order to facilitate the extraction of thread forming core on the bottle cap. Further, the dexterous designers made the 2D and 3D drawing manually because at that time PITAC was not using any type of software. That was a fine achievement of PITAC at that time to design and fabricate the mold without any proper setup of machinery and soft wares.
In 1998, PITAC has had not the facility of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, and it was very difficult to work with few conventional machines like milling, lathe, shaper and grinding etc., but the PITAC team skilfully and successfully completed the mold facing a lot of intricacies and troubles. This achievement is a proud for the PITAC that without any advanced setup and facilities, it was able to come up with solution.
In contrast to the mold imported from the china, the PITAC manufactured mold was more reliable and efficient to work. Also, in the monetary terms, it was cost efficient with a max warranty in comparison to the other market molds.
The average production of the mold was 60,000 bottles per year.
