From tough tubes to custom containers, the packaging industry offers an abundance of effective products that provide excellent protection for your fragile parts. These products can help protect your fragile parts against handling and shipping damage that can occur in transit, whether you’re shipping by air, land, or sea. They also offer protection against damages that can occur when boxes are moved or jostled while in storage.
While there are many cutting-edge products on the market today, it might take a little legwork to find the best packaging containers for your specific fragile parts. One of the main things to consider is in some cases you will have to purchase separate products as a compliment to many packaging containers.
Even the most heavy duty containers might need a little something extra, as a sturdy exterior might not be enough to prevent products and parts form shifting, vibrating, and experiencing other movements while in transit or being stored.
The following are just a few extras you can use to help secure fragile parts in wood, corrugated, plastic, and other types of packaging containers:
- Air Pouches
- Bubble Wrap
- Compression Packs
- Corrugated Trays
- Foam Dividers/Inserts
- Polyethylene Cushioning
- Secondary Containers
Now, if you’re interested in a packaging container that comes equipped with safety cushioning, you might consider a standard or custom foam shipper. Foam shippers are corrugated boxes that have several built-in layers of thick foam, which offers superior shock absorption and extraordinary protection against slippage. While they come in all shapes and sizes, foam shippers can also be customized according to your exact specifications.
Most foam shippers are reusable and many have locking tabs for added security. Finally, foam shippers can be used alone or as a secondary container.
