For 8 years Shepherd Thermoforming and Packaging has hosted Humber College students with a seminar and a tour of the Shepherd facility. Humber’s Package Design course includes a segment on Thermoforming and its instructor Bert Bobrovniczky has arranged this event each year which generally is attended by over 20 students.
The students have the use of a small table top vacuum former donated to the school by Shepherd, allowing them to design parts, build tooling and produce samples. Students were told to think of a new food product and design the package complete with thermoformed package and graphics that would be functional and have merchandising appeal.
Each year we have noticed that the quality of parts improves and this year samples were submitted to Sales Engineer Simon Mangos for his comments. Here are 8 of the projects presented at the Shepherd seminar. Simon and Shepherd management congratulate Mr. Bobrovniczky and his students on their excellent work.
