Custom packaging solution to prevent costly product damage
SpecTape is constantly looking for ways to increase specialty and customized items to better provide our customers with solutions that fulfill their packaging, fabricating, and production needs.
Recently SpecTape had the opportunity to offer a packaging solution to a customer that could reduce the estimated 1 million dollars lost due to damages occurring during transport and delivery of their products.
The customer needed a solution designed to hold their large molded parts together during transit. The solution needed to be robust enough to protect the product during loading, unloading, and any additional handling during the delivery process. After reviewing the issues presented by the customer and working one-on-one with their packaging team, SpecTape identified the best solution was to design a custom stretch film machine to handle the customer’s bulky products. SpecTape then partnered with Western Plastics to produce a customized piece of equipment designed to hold the customer’s product on the machine during packaging. This machine could take the very bulky, stacked parts and wrap them securely enough to the point where there was little to no movement occurring during transit. The film selected has exceptional memory and keeps constant tension on the pack, making the finished pallet of goods more secure.
With the custom equipment and specialty film in place, the damages have declined significantly. This customer has since added a second machine to their main location and many others have begun purchasing the solution designed by SpecTape. We were able to design a custom process with a personal touch to provide the customer the perfect solution to their issues. SpecTape shines in custom applications where the challenges go beyond providing another “me to” product by leveraging our knowledge, expertise, and solutions on the best materials to guarantee success in your application.
