Gerber Good Start

Posted on September 25, 2015

When Gerber targeted their puréed baby food over cap for gram weight reduction and design enhancements, they chose Gateway Plastics as their molding partner. Our challenge was to reduce the use of plastic in a part that already weighed less than four grams, while improving the design for better flow‑through on the Gerber fill lines.

The Result: A completely redesigned over‑cap snap that reduces weight by 14%. Not only is Gerber saving money on resin, but the redesigned cap performs better on their food filling lines, decreasing down time and cap scrap.
