The XTray can be used for a large part of the needle/thread combinations produced on the market. The use of small needles and "double-armed" needles is also currently being prepared and will soon be possible.
As a rule, production technology can be implemented within 12 months. DST provides the relevant documentation to be submitted to the authorities, and exclusive DST partners provide the necessary components (XTray and Paper Lid). As part of the network, the partner Harro Höfliger offers the required packaging machines. The only parameter that cannot be precisely defined are the approval requirements of the local authorities. The time needed for this can only be answered once the requirements are clear. Our sales department will be happy to answer all your questions.
The XTray has many precisely quantifiable advantages in comparison to a time consuming and cost intensive in-house development. We are expecting cost savings and investment advantages which could well be in the seven-digit € range. The benefits at a glance:
The XTray is a fully developed and tested thread carrier system and offers the following particular benefits:
We currently often receive questions regarding the change from manual production to automation or from paperfold to plastic trays. In both cases the XTray is an ideal opportunity to quickly and safely increase production numbers while maintaining the highest quality according to the Gold Standard.
Another important advantage is the modern, innovative concept that enables many needle and thread combinations.
The reduced share of required material due to one "component less" saves considerable costs both in production and in material consumption. In addition to saving costs, it also reduces the environmental impact compared to the plastic products usually available on the market.
When talking to market participants, several of them confirmed that they are struggling with many unexpected production problems with their in-house developments and are therefore considering to switch from in-house development to the XTray.
