Perfecseal wins Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Award

Perfecseal, a division of Bemis Company and global supplier to the medical device, pharmaceutical and diagnostic packaging markets, has earned the 2010 SPE roll-fed, thin-gauge medical thermoformed parts Gold Medal for design of the Ascent Gyrus thermoformed tray.

  This tray, designed and manufactured by Perfecseal’s Mankato, Minnesota team, features an engineered snap-fit design which utilizes strategically located, aggressive undercuts and gussets to hold the surgical device in place without requiring a separate retainer. The package design also acts as a shock-dampening system to protect the device from the rigors of the distribution channel. The new packaging is 100% recyclable and utilizes 20% less material than the original packaging. 

Perfecseal employs a collaborative design process to provide packaging solutions that meet the unique needs of each individual application. As the leading provider of reprocessing and remanufacturing services for medical devices, Ascent's challenge was to enhance the package to differentiate from the OEM design. This design team accomplished these goals while providing significant material savings.
