- Pro Engineer
Tek Pak's designers are degreed engineers who have continued to update their education in all three packages. As part of the quotation service, Tek Pak will design packaging (carrier tape, tray or clamshell) for your part from any type of information that you choose to provide. To give you the best service, we prefer one of the following:
- Solid model file (e.g. IGES)
- AutoCAD file (DWG or DXF)
- An actual part
Having your part geometry and the functionality and material specifications for the package, Tek Pak will design the strongest package possible to protect your part and provide the functionality that you need. If you have a finalized package design, Tek Pak will design a tool to create that part exactly.
Reverse Engineering Capabilities
Tek Pak offers a full range of reverse engineering and 3D digitizing services for your parts that have incomplete or non-existent technical drawings. The creation of a three dimensional digital image, which is then transformed into a mathematical model of the surface, also allows Tek Pak to forward engineer your recreated part to improve its performance. Our services can take on a variety of forms depending on your industry and specific application - your imagination is the only limit!
We currently have the following contact measurement systems:
- Starrett RGDC 2828-24
- Renishaw Cyclone

Quality Assurance Program
Tek Pak is committed to providing our customers with products as quickly as possible with quality that is unequaled in the industry.Inspection - Tek Pak's production inspection is a combination of on-line systems and manual inspections that are performed during production to ensure that all products shipped to our customers conform to their needs and specifications. All of our carrier tape production machinery contains a system of fiber optic sensors or a vision inspection system to verify the proper formation of and spacing of the product. In addition, every reel of product is sampled and manually inspected by production personnel to verify that critical dimensions conform to industry standards.
Daily quality control audits are done to ensure that we have the necessary working instructions, the most current drawings, and calibrated tools to ensure that nothing but the highest quality products leave our facility.
Tek Pak also has the capability of producing a Certificate of Conformance that is generated by our non-contact vision system at the request of our customers. This vision system is used to measure, in detail, specific attributes of products that are critical to its proper functioning in the field.
Our team members are all highly motivated. Tek Pak incorporates a flat organizational profile to insure that all employees have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the design and manufacturing processes. It is everyone's goal to be able to respond to customer's questions immediately. You will rarely get a 'Let me check on that and I'll get back to you.' This takes time; we understand the value of time.
Tek Pak has implemented a comprehensive environmental program that includes waste minimization. We are working toward ISO 14000 compliance.
Recycling and source reduction are the fundamental principles of Tek Pak's waste minimization program. Tek Pak recycles all of its excess polymer, aluminum, steel, paper and cardboard. Our recycling efforts to date have resulted in a 30% reduction in landfill waste. We also produce a number of environmentally responsible, recyclable products, including Bio-Reels. Source reduction is achieved by improved equipment design that reduces set-up times and increases reliability, accuracy and throughput. This reduces the amount of wasted material and energy. Tek Pak is constantly searching for ways to improve efficiency.
