Integrating Technology, Enhancing Value

We use state-of-the-art technologies to develop and enhance our design and manufacturing abilities, including initial design consultation, product development, prototyping and mould fabrication to commercial manufacturing within the complete product development cycle.

Our value-add capabilities and services consists of:

Design Facilities

Revolutionary technologies such as 3D CAD/CAM software help to present a 3D visualization of the product without the need to build an actual model. With CAD/CAM software, you can preview your product in 3D before it is built or produced. The product design can be adjusted and fine-tuned easily and quickly, shortening the time needed to produce the product.

In addition to this, we have also invested in drop testing equipments to determine the ability of a package designed to withstand the rigors of handling by people and machinery during the products manufacturing or distribution life cycle.

Using these cutting edge software and equipments, we gain invaluable feedback from customers and test results, and can modify designs rapidly. More importantly, we can shorten the time needed to produce order to your specification.

Design Consultancy

Design consultancy allows us to use our vast industry knowledge and experience to help you make the right cost-effective decisions. We offer advice and recommendations particularly during the initial design consultation stage. We advise too on aesthetics, functionality and manufacturability as well as recommend on display, logistics and marketing considerations.

Mould Fabrication Capabilities

Complementing our design capabilities are CNC facilities for mould fabrication and soft tool fabrication to shorten time-to-market from design to product.

As automated machines, CNC facilities help reduce the frequency of errors and subsequently improve product quality and consistency. CNC facilities demonstrate superior manufacturing flexibility as product complexities are easily overcome. Curves are easy to cut, complex 3-D structures are easier to produce, and the number of machining steps that require human action is dramatically reduced. In addition, once moulds are made, we take great care to store your mould designs in secure fire-protected facilities.

CNC facilities aside, we offer too soft tool fabrication, another value-add service which allow us to produce moulds quickly for customers. This shortens the lead time needed to produce the finished product. Using soft tool fabrication, we help customers save on total product development costs.

Polymer Development

We invest heavily in R&D with a keen interest towards customising proprietary materials such as polymer compounds for the automation tray and plastic packaging industry. In March 2001, we set up our own Polymer Research Centre in Penang to undertake research and development activities related to plastic polymers. Beginning January 2005, such R&D activities have been transferred to Texchem-Polymers Sdn. Bhd., a new establishment under Texchem-Pack (M) Bhd.

Cleanroom Facilities

We provide cleanroom facilities to meet the stringent requirements of our customers in various industries. These are located at our productions facilities in Johor, Penang, Bangi and Ayutthaya. A cleanroom facility usually is a controlled environment with greatly reduced levels of dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles and chemical vapors. Our production facilities in Johor and Ayutthaya are capable of maintaining a Class 100 environment for the cleaning and packing of our products, while our Penang plant has in place a Class 100k production facility.
