Graham Packaging Company, L.P. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and sale of custom, blow-molded, rigid plastic containers. Graham Packaging employs a team of over 8,200 individuals, with 97 plants in 15 countries across North America, Europe, South America and Asia.

Using NX CAE, Graham Packaging realized a number of bottom line-boosting benefits, including decreasing the time it takes to make mold changes from 3 minutes per cavity to 1 minute per cavity; reducing revisions to neck inserts from 2 or 3 to 0 or 1, decreasing cycle time by 20 percent and saving 6 weeks of testing with 1 week of simulation.

"Using NX Thermal and [NX] Flow on just the mold side, we've saved US$2 million by cutting costs and reducing the number of recuts," says Travis Hunter, design engineer and lead analyst at Graham Packaging.
