Plastic packaging is mainly used in manufacturing and logistics. The automotive industry is one of the largest uptake markets, where trays for handling fragile, fragile products, bulk fillers and packaging films are all needed. They are a cheaper, cost-effective solution and can be moulded to almost any shape.
What types of plastic packaging do we make?
Plastic logistics trays
These items are used for the storage and sorting of very fragile goods. They are most similar to flower collectors or plastic egg trays, but they are more likely to contain bulbs, metal, ceramic or glass parts. The automotive industry and logistics centres are the main users of such solutions. For them, the distance between the elements is very important to protect their goods from being knocked over or broken during movement within the factory.
A not insignificant aspect is that these trays position the products well beyond the packaging and protection. In the advanced automotive industry, robots can be positioned in the ideal orientation for each part, which they can then easily work with, simply by grasping the parts.
One-way logistics tray
In the field of plastic packaging, we distinguish between single- and multi-way packaging. Single-use packaging is a non-reusable solution. Rather, it is an optimally designed design that is developed for a single logistic circuit.
Multiway logistics tray
Multiway packaging designs are strong in long-term usability. This is because they can withstand the stresses of repeated handling and reloading. However, if you want to use a packaging for a long period, there is inevitably the aspect of keeping it clean and cleanability, which they must meet.
When it comes to plastics, we also have to consider the static parameters. An important question is whether the packaging should be antistatic (ESD).
Colour codes in the packaging
When we think of plastic packaging, what most often comes to mind is a white, opaque material. This is no coincidence, as many people use this colour. However, the different colours of packaging can be of great importance. Sometimes different coloured but identically shaped packaging is used to distinguish between new and reject goods.
In other cases, different colours are used for different parts to help with logistics and assembly.
Space fillers in boxes
Products within a larger unit box can be easily protected by space fillers. These are usually some kind of inflatable air cushion, foil or foam layers. They help to keep items or components fixed inside the packaging.
This type of packaging is ideal for lightweight products, small parts that can be well protected and immobilised.
Plastic films are very common in the field of packaging. They are lightweight, inexpensive devices that act as protective packaging. We manufacture a wide variety of polyethylene pouches, bags and sacks, which can be either air cushioned or anti-static (ESD).
Typical uses of these packaging materials are to protect bulk goods, form packaging units or provide extra protection inside the box.
Typically used for securing bulk goods, forming packing units or for extra protection inside the box, plastic film is a good choice as a packaging material. They have a wide range of uses and are excellent for protecting products from scratches, dust and other contaminants.
