In his new capacity as CTO, Mukherjee will be leading all engineering functions at PTI including predictive modeling, product design, engineering, process lab and tooling services. In addition to managing technical support for customer projects, Mukherjee will be instrumental in bringing new leading-edge technical solutions to PTI, and helping to further develop engineering team members.

His work has brought improved accuracy to computer simulations which helps brand owners predicting top load, creep expansion, drop impact, squeeze strength, hot fill and retorting before a mold is cut. Further processes are being designed that model crystallization, strain hardening, infrared absorption and conformal cooling to develop robust lightweight, higher performing packages that will positively impact shelf life.
