Did you know that every 2 1/2 second somewhere round the world a Tupperware demonstration is held?

Tupperware uses prototypes to test their designs before they release their products in the market and counts on Materialise for that. When Tupperware orders prototypes with Materialise, they use Materialise OnSite, the online ordering system.

In the European Design center located in Aalst (Belgium), their designers work on the worldwide known designs of their products for the European market. The Tupperware design is designed for everyday use. Handy, useful and timeless, these products unite beauty and ease of use.

Before a product of Tupperware arrives at the household, it has to go a long way. Once the design has been approved at Tupperware, they draw it on a computer with the newest CAD/CAM techniques. Then the prototypes can be made for the new product. That way, sometimes two to three years after the first designs and after lots of tests, the products are finally produced.

Customer needs are important

From the very first start of the production process, the design phase, the needs of the customers are most important. What do the customers want? How will a new Tupperware product improve their daily life? How will they use it? Will it make their task easier, faster or just more pleasant?

Only if they have an answer to all these questions, the designers can start. They will make a quality product combined with beauty and ease of use, which lasts a lifetime.

Materialise OnSite: online prototypes, 24hrs available

That’s where Materialise OnSite enters the picture. Tupperware knows exactly in which technology they want to receive their prototypes. Also they have knowledge of the wide range of materials which Materialise can offer. That’s why Tupperware orders all their prototypes via the online ordering system, Materialise OnSite. The big advantage here is that they quickly receive their realistic representation of their products and they can show it off to  customers.

The product development group of Tupperware usually orders stereolithography or NextDay because they mostly need prototypes with high accuracy of details to do tests with.
