Protective Isolating Packaging for Critical Components
In December 2006 Codan approached FormCUT with an urgent request to supply to an existing design, protective packing sets incorporating nine individually shaped polyurethane foam inserts to house and protect sensitive communications equipment for defence.
We evaluated the design and drew the conclusion that it offered negligable protection benefit and, after tests confirmed this to be the case, we were commissioned by Codan to work up a new design that met their requirements.
Design anmd manufacture an advanced Packaging Set to reduce transportation damage without increasing direct costs.
Our solution incorporated two identical packing frames and delivered a direct cost saving together with other significant environmental and delivery benefits:
- Small form factor
- Reduced packing time by 50%
- No damage in transit (reduced by 25%)
A significant new feature is that contained communications products can now be deployed by rolling out from the back of a moving vehicle.
The final product exceeded the specification and went on to be recognised in 2008 by the Packaging Council of Australia for its design.
FormCUT is a pro-active Defence focused organisation, developing Packaging, Handling and Storage solutions for the safe and secure transit of defence material as required by the Damage Minimisation Initiative [DMI] under Strategic Reform Program (SRP).
