Benefits

The advantages of a TAKEMOTO partnership

With a wide variety of available caps and dispensers, combinations exist to meet any needs.
TAKEMOTO offers a wide variety of caps, plugs and dispensers that can be combined with customer’s ideas for bottles and jars. It is possible to reduce mold costs by utilizing these caps and dispensers when designing the custom container. We have caps and dispensers to meet various demands, not only for the shape but also the usage, dosage and functionality.

TAKEMOTO’s vast collection of molds are available for use
By making use of our existing molds, you can speed up the commercialization of custom containers with lower initial cost. For example, you can use our existing preforms to make custom containers with excellent strength and stability with only the development of a blow mold required. In addition, it is also possible to add originality to the product by remodeling certain parts of existing products such as our pumps and replacement refill containers.
feature-item-2
Prototyping can be rapidly implemented in response to customers’ needs using digital and other technologies
As the product life cycle is shortened, rapid product development is required. We prepare a prototype by making a 3D image container simulation from the customer’s sketch using digital tools, and can then make a 3D model or resin mold. Using digital technology to shorten the design period, we are also able to support the customer with a truly thorough process.
feature-item-3
A cooperative development system to pursue and realize new product value with our customers.
When developing a new container, it is necessary to confirm from various viewpoints and angles not only the design, performance and function, but also the characteristics of the target contents and conduct various tests under the (assumed) usage environment. In addition, before it can be used as a container, a wide variety of knowledge, experience and networks are required with regard to material selection, intellectual property, mold characteristics, molding technology, legal regulations, delivery time, cost and logistics. We have a network of Standout human resources with abundant knowledge and experience both inside and outside the company to support container development at all levels and from every aspect.

Production sites are the heart of manufacturing. In unity with our productions bases, we give shape to the customer’s ideas.
The most important thing at our own production bases and our carefully cultivated external production network is to “give shape to the customer’s thoughts and ideas, and to make containers that securely protect those ideas”. Although we have a wide variety of equipment at our production bases, the most important thing is the standout pioneering spirit of our production site employees. In close partnership with our production sites, we are working to meet customer demands, accepting new challenges, responding to customer needs and building stable quality.

Together Lab

At TOGETHER LAB, we create the customer’s brand in partnership with the customer.

In order to create the ideal container faster, we have created a lab where everything from project planning with the customer and trial production to consultation on mass production can be implemented.
Using a process that fuses digital and real world technologies, we give shape to ideas and images, sharing brand designs with our customers and working towards the creation of a new packaging culture.

Prototype creation

Digital design tools
3D images can be created from the customer’s own product design sketches and color simulation can be performed.
prototype-img-1
3D printing
From digital data, it is possible to make a 3D model, and also to make a resin mold to trial produce a molded container in order to confirm the shape with a real life image.

Color solutions

Color image booth
Products, models and trial products are colored with an air spray to confirm the product color image.
color-solution-img-1
Color sample selection
A color sample that suits the product image is selected from color plates from previous production, PANTONE plastic plates and so on to produce the color.
color-solution-img-2
Color verification
At TOGETHER LAB, colors can be matched based on the customer’s color sample and the product color can be confirmed on the spot with color cups and plates.

Design image

We will give shape to your ideas and images. We will create product drawings and 3D data from sketches of the customer’s design. It is also possible to prepare drawings from the data provided by the customer. We use digital tools to produce a 3D image to simulate the form of the container, the decoration method, and the combination with accessories. 3D models and design drawings are provided to confirm the final result. For coloring, we can introduce options from a wide range of color samples. For decoration, we will propose various decoration methods to achieve your graphic design using various secondary processing methods. After confirming the details, we will present an estimate of the unit price of the product.
