Realistic simulation with Abaqus has enabled PTI to reduce development costs, achieved faster time to market for its customers, and improve design and production troubleshooting and diagnoses.

The Challenge

PTI, a leader in plastic packaging design services, wanted a more cost-effective and efficient alternative to extensive physical prototyping and testing as part of a rigorous campaign to help customers lightweight plastic container designs and aid in root-cause analysis of product failures.

Dassault Systèmes Response

PTI adopted SIMULIA, a key component of Perfect Package Industry Solution Experience, in combination with the company’s proprietary simulation tool, to vet lightweight PET container designs based on topload and side-load performance in a virtual world. Abaqus also helped PTI’s efforts to optimize preform parameters and eliminate performance failures.

Benefits

Realistic simulation with Abaqus has enabled PTI to reduce development costs, achieved faster time to market for its customers, and improve design and production troubleshooting and diagnoses, giving it a strong competitive edge.
