GIZEH’s production process - Creative. Functional. Individual.

Your product lies at the heart of our work. GIZEH develops product packaging which is more than just functional. We determine the perfect form and design to provide you with a packaging solution which has been tailor made to suit your customers, brand and content.

Our mission is to go above and beyond the ordinary. As soon as initial ideas and questions start forming, you will have a competent member of the GIZEH development team on hand to help.

Stages in the packaging production process

GIZEH’s typical packaging production process involves the following stages:

Briefing

Briefing

Good cooperation starts with a good consultation. As the design and manufacturing of a new packaging solution are very complex procedures, we develop the entire container solution together with the customer.

What does this stage involve?

  • Task description
  • Recording of all relevant criteria
  • Creation of a specification catalog

Brainstorming

Brainstorming

It’s time for our team to immerse themselves in the creative process. We analyse competitor products, draw on our expertise in consumer behaviour, check our idea pool and map out a basic, individual concept.

 

What does this stage involve?

  • The creative process, taking brand/product/target audience/market into consideration
  • Identifying technical possibilities

Advice

Detailed advice

After we have presented our ideas to our customer, we then discuss a wide range aspects in detail: product protection, shelf life, sustainability, legal requirements, filling and logistics processes, usability, costs, and many more. After these discussions, it may become apparent that the container and lid have completely different requirements, for example, meaning that different production processes, as well as different decoration processes, are required.

 

What does this stage involve?

  • Presenting the basic concept
  • Demonstrating the technical options
  • Defining the technology

3D construction

3D construction and visualization

We use the latest CAD software so that the highest standards in quality are guaranteed right from the start. During this stage, we also start to align with other partners our customers are working with, such as bottle system manufacturers, foil seal suppliers etc.

 

What does this stage involve?

  • Tool mature construction
  • 3D rendering
  • Design approval
  • Decision on the concept
  • Cost-benefit analysis

3D prototypes

Generating 3D prototypes

After the final design has been approved, we generate a prototype to bring our idea off the paper and into reality. GIZEH’s own 3D printer can produce a three-dimensional model (in an additive process) and can even faithfully reproduce complex structures.

What does this stage involve?

  • Rapid prototyping
  • Presenting the 3D model
  • Market tests

Pilot tool

Pilot tool

If desired, we can implement pilot production for small batches (e.g. tests for marketing, logistics). Ultimately, the process should result in a product which is ready for series production.

What does this stage involve?

  • Presenting a series production-ready model for initial machine testing
  • Approval of the final design

Tool construction

Tool construction

We then begin the complex process of producing a series tool in our in-house tool shop, or precision tool shop, located in Switzerland. This tool can be used for industrial series production.

What does this stage involve?

  • Project monitoring
  • In-house tool and precision tool shop in Switzerland

Series production

Series production

We put our wealth of extensive experience with various filling processes at our customers’ disposal by providing on-site customer support.

What does this stage involve?

  • Internal product approval
  • Filling process support

Product development - Customized for you

Our long-standing customer Pieno žvaigždės owns a number of renowned leading brands which produce dairy products in the Baltics. Pieno žvaigždės has collaborated with GIZEH Verpackungen to create a series of pots which give their special yoghurts and desserts the wow factor when placed on refrigerator shelves.

Driven by Innovation

Our company has a team of technicians and engineers. We are continuously working to develop our packaging solutions using state-of-the-art 3D CAD stations and we have a constant stream of new packaging options to show you, all of which can give your product an edge.
