Available on iPhone and iPad (iOS) devices, the PolyApp allows users to prepare orders and perform dimensional calculations for the specific product (rolls or boxed) being designed, manufactured, quoted, or purchased.
Calculations are all made within a matter of seconds after the specifications are entered, Polykar said.
App tools include: liner dimension, weight/1,000, film thickness, order planning, yield (roll OD and footage), and blow-up ratio.
Together, Polykar said the tools replace the constant use of spreadsheets and website calculators, guaranteeing production planners, extrusion operators, or sales reps working for a converter or distributor, greater productivity and accuracy.
“As an innovative company, we saw the opportunity to provide a unique platform for those in the flexible packaging industry,” explained Amir Karim, president and chief executive of Polykar.
“PolyApp offers the convenience of having all calculation tools packaged in one place. We hope this app will be appreciated and used by many in our industry.”
PolyApp can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store. The app is available in English, with a French version to be made available soon.
