The CHEER PACK Innovation Center (C-PIC) Can Help Brand Owners
Quickly Design Their Custom CHEERShapes™ Spouted Pouch
West Bridgewater, Mass., August 14, 2020 – Cheer Pack North America is one of only a few companies in North America that manufactures spouted flexible pouches in a variety of shapes. CPNA’s CHEERShapes™ are available in multiple film structures and print surfaces to address almost any product application or design. CHEERShapes are also available with or without a top gusset and can be made in a variety of custom shapes, offering a unique industry innovation.*
Spouted flexible pouches can be shaped to resemble a company’s existing non-pouch packaging, providing a unique solution to reinforce the branding strategy. Shapes can also be used to reinforce what the product is, such as an apple-shaped flexible pouch that contains apple juice or apple sauce. Another example is creating a pouch in the shape of an animal for a brand owner who uses that animal in their brand communication. Clients can work directly with the CPNA team to rapidly develop and test multiple-shaped flexible pouch options by utilizing the CHEER PACK® Innovation Center (C-PIC).
The C-PIC was launched in 2018 and is designed to provide testing of films, resins, and additives for designing and manufacturing flexible pouches, fitments, and caps for food and non-food products. The equipment in the C-PIC includes three filling machines (for water qualification testing), an SLA machine for rapid 3D prototyping, a pouch film sealer, and an injection-molding machine. The facility is also used as a laboratory for new product development and, as a result, CPNA has secured U.S. design patents for new products that were created in the C-PIC.
“The CHEER PACK N.A. team continues to welcome current and prospective clients to consider our Innovation Center where we can develop your innovative flexible pouch packaging solutions, including CHEERShapes,” said Steve Gosling, President of CPNA. “Our proprietary R&D incubator ultimately enhances your speed-to-market.”
