Origin Pharma Packaging has invested and brought in-house a dedicated 3D printing department to allow clients to see the creation of pharmaceutical packaging concepts within a matter of hours.

This new service completes the full pharmaceutical packaging design process, which allows PILOT to take clients from concept to manufacturing. Clients can visit Origin Pharma Packaging at its dedicated headquarters while their designs are being produced in the 3D printer. They can also amend and edit designs before making any large investments for pilot moulds or commercial tooling.

Origin Pharma Packaging’s head of pharmaceutical packaging Jon Lant explains the benefits of the new 3D printing department and what it will bring to the pharmaceutical packaging design process: "We have made a significant investment to ensure we give our clients a full 360° service, which allows the design of their packaging to be done all under one roof. The 3D printing department creates speed and delivers efficiency in the design of their packaging concepts."

Origin Pharma Packaging is increasing acceleration in product manufacturing and delivery. Hybrid Pharma Packaging Partner (HP3) is being recognised by manufacturers worldwide as a process that not only supports growth but enables products to get to market quickly.

Investments made in the new 3D printing department will further strengthen partnerships formed with Origin Pharma Packaging’s license holders, CMOs, and manufacturers. Origin will develop initiatives to support the growth and development of its partners.

Jon Lant explains the development of the NPD process and how it is becoming recognised globally: "Our in-house pharmaceutical packaging design team continuously drives innovation and ensures the latest technologies are applied when partnering with clients. The 3D printing department complements our design process and allows us to develop concepts in record speed. We are working alongside large pharmaceutical companies who are under pressure to produce good quality packaging and our PILOT process supports this desired outcome".
