With the increased adoption of automated pick-and-place robots, the ongoing focus on continual quality improvement and the need for more sustainable packaging, the market for precision thermoformed trays and totes has never been greater. Indepak has had a history of success supplying the industrial market for a number of reasons.
Our Ability to Design for Automation
Flourishing in today’s competitive marketplace typically requires a fair amount of automation. The Indepak team has been at the forefront of developing trays that work in automated environments.
We understand the requirements of parts feeding in automation, denesting, and close tolerance flanges.
We specialize in creating trays with tight-tolerance cavities that provide the precise product fit required in many automated pick-and-place processes.
We offer both silicone-coated and internal denest material options to ensure consistent performance in automated dispensing processes.
Capable of Precision Thermoforming
Whether it relates to automation or the need to minimize movement of parts during transit, producing trays and packages with tight cavity tolerances that yield a precise product fit have become more essential than ever.
Our team not only utilizes some of the most sophisticated thermoforming equipment in the industry, but our ISO certified processes and 55+ years of experience makes us an ideal partner for developing all types of industrial thermoformed packaging solutions.
Our innovative “Rotate-to-Stack” design combines a nesting design that saves space during the shipping process, but rotates and stacks to provide clearance between trays when product is stacked in the cavities.
Indepak’s extensive experience in designing and forming products with intricate and complex shapes is second-to-none. This parts tray features 40 precision cavities, stacking features and is made from a conductive material.
Extremely Tight Tolerances
To help this client’s tray perform consistently in its robotic pick-and-place packaging process, our engineers successfully designed and produced a tray with a cavity tolerance of .005” that held the near-exact placement of the extremely sensitive parts.
To help one of the world's leading manufacturers of business equipment, Indepak designed and produces a series of intricate, lightweight shields designed to protect computer printers during shipment.
