Lubes’n’Greases IMEA (July 2018), have published an article on how Curve designed the new motor oil bottles for Bapco Lubricants.
The article covers taking a new design from initial concept sketches into the CAD system for the detail build.
During this stage and before passing CAD data to mould makers Curve Design analyse:
- how space efficient bottles will be throughout distribution
- how well they will pour – right tip angle – no glugging
- how easy they are to handle
- how strong they are using FEA testing – helps build strength through design while minimising material weight
