Die Line Generation System

die line generation system

We developed a web-based die line generation system for a corrugated and cardboard box manufacturer which has many well-known clients in Japan. Majority of their clients were home electronics companies. They needed much variation of size and design of carton due to fulfill their numerous SKU. The box manufacturer was managing to handle with lots of manual work.

Since our die line generation system has been introduced, the client can access the system on web-browser. They can input the box size and other necessary information (such as texts, logos or symbols etc.) which will be printed on the box. Then the system instantly generates a PDF file with the die line with the graphic design of the box ( like the picture on the above ). It’s in vector line. The layout of the graphics is automatically processed based on the user’s settings. Additionally, the system can generate specifications of the box.

Thanks to the system, the box manufacturer ended up with reducing massive costs for making die lines. Besides, human errors have been dramatically reduced by automating the manual processes.

This system has also eased their clients’ ordering process of boxes. This is because, whole design process can be done online without special skills of box design. Actually, one of the clients has awarded a prize to the box manufacturer for improvement of productivity.
