HLP Klearfold acquires worldwide InSight patents

HLP Klearfold recently purchased the worldwide patents for the InSight visual packaging system from ASG (the AGI Shorewood Group), in order to offer two uniquely tubular visual packaging systems.

The award-winning system combines printed plastic sleeves and injection molded plastic end caps to produce a very distinctive visual package. The sleeves are essentially tubes with the shape of the end caps determining the cross-sectional profile of the package. The end caps attach to the sleeves using a unique locking feature. Undercuts molded into the end caps engage die-cut tabs on the sleeves to join the components together securely. Packages can be designed so that end caps either lock permanently to the sleeve or twist off easily.

Insight is most suitable for larger volume applications, because up-front tooling costs for injection molded components can be expensive; production runs of 250 thousand pieces or more are typical.
