CTI Not Sitting Down on the Job
Creative Techniques is the No. 1 supplier of automotive seat pallets again in 2014, according to a recent announcement from CTI. “The combination of internal design, tooling and prototyping, experience and quick turnaround has enabled CTI to be No. 1 in seat pallets for many years,” the company reports.
New Innovative enviroLid Products Coming
The first quarter of 2015 will bring a revolutionary new generation of the proprietary enviroLid products. CTI describes the enviroLid as a highly-engineered lid with the unprecedented benefits of being environmentally friendly, by eliminating stretch wrap and banding on pallet packs.
Notable cost savings include the elimination of stretch wrap and banding, related solid waste disposal, labor savings, superior product protection, increased floor space, and lower material handling costs. The new generation of enviroLids delivers a 50 percent weight reduction on the previous 45″ x 48″ lid. This new lightweight generation of enviroLids will for the first time also offer a 32″ x 36″ enviroLid. Click here to see the enviroLid video.
New 3D Printing Capabilities Deliver Rapid Prototypes
Full 3D printing capabilities have recently been added by Creative Techniques, providing the opportunity for highly accurate prototypes made of production materials, with full production part functionality. A marked reduction in critical turnaround time is achieved by having the internal 3D prototype capabilities to create an exact production prototype. Creative Techniques continues to look for new technology solutions to provide the fastest turnaround time in the reusable packaging industry.
