This project required a recyclable packaging system that would replace the expensive foam separators that were currently being used. The  automotive parts being shipped are finish painted.and must be supported with an even low surface pressure. The solution was three layers of 20 parts in standard 7" x 13" x 22" tote boxes. Each layer was held with 2 separator strips formed to the profile of the parts using 0.030" thick HIPS (high impact poly- styrene). Each strip used only 1 oz of plastic.  bin of spacers_450.jpg (36158 bytes)

This shows how the parts are supported inside the shipping tote box. Only 7 parts were loaded for clarity. spacers in plastic_450.jpg (31256 bytes)
