Product Development

DRT has maintained its leadership position in the easy-open end industry with an unwavering commitment to research and development.

Dedicated Research & Development

Where most system manufacturers struggle to find production resources to develop new products, DRT has a dedicated group of engineers with its own prototype machining and research laboratory. Customers can realize significant materials savings as DRT produces solutions that reduce tab material and thus reduce material costs.
