York Container, an end to end packaging designer, is using EskoArtwork’s ArtiosCAD structural design software to boost productivity and reduce revisions during the design review cycle.

Established in 1954, York Container is a single source supplier of corrugated shipping containers, retail packaging and POP displays. With advanced tools and a staff of nearly 200, York offers complete solutions through the entire packaging production workflow, from providing raw materials and structural solutions to creative graphic design and in-line production of printing, die-cutting, coating, folding, and gluing.

York’s varied customer base, including premier automotive, snack food, and pharmaceutical companies, require a wide range of packaging to move their products. ArtiosCAD’s parametrics plays a key role in helping Troy Little, Director of Design, deliver products to its customers on a timely basis. "Parametrics allows us to automatically resize designs, quickly and efficiently," says Little. "If you have an existing drawing, and want the same dimensions but 20% larger, ArtiosCAD can do it very quickly. Or, let’s say the original design was created in B flute, but after doing some compression testing we change it to C flute. Instead of redesigning the packaging allowances in the different flute, ArtiosCAD automatically resizes the scoring allowances. Our previous system couldn’t redesign anything easily. The design either had to be redrawn or manipulated manually."
