From the creative idea to the blown bottle or cup
Serac’s service begins by delving into the creative stage, where they envision remarkable concepts tailored to each brand.
Once a design idea is chosen, Serac’s packaging experts refine it to ensure proper blowability. This involves 3D printing sample bottles or blowing samples for the final validation of the design. Subsequently, the industrialization process commences, including blowing tests conducted on Serac’s linear blowers. Rigorous quality checks are performed, examining dimensions, weight, and compressive strength to ensure optimal results.
The 4 Milky Monsters have gone all the way through this process.
