Situation: The need for Robust, yet easy-to-use Packaging that offers Protection against Harsh Environments
While trying to meet the worldwide demands for their sensitive, large scanners and imaging equipment, Analogic needed a packaging material that not only would give them the proper protection, but would also offer them an easy application that wouldn’t tie up their labor and slow down production.
Problem: Costly Returns, Service Calls and Packaging
It’s not easy to ship sophisticated equipment to many handlers around the world that may lack the proper warehousing, infrastructure, and handling equipment. Being an OEM, Analogic sacrifices logistical control of their product once it leaves their facility. For example, much of the shipped equipment is bulky in size and airport customs may break the integrity of the package to see inside, leaving the equipment exposed to severe and potentially damaging atmospheric conditions. This type of mishandling could result in costly freight returns from far off countries. Analogic looked into traditional barrier bags, but found them to be cost prohibitive because they take too long to put in place and vacuum out. Analogic also found that the time required to build the protective barrier created a bottleneck in the packaging area.
Solution: A Barrier Packaging Solution that Would
Static Intercept® “Quick Pack” Shrouds: Robust, Easy to Apply, Cost Effective
Static Intercept® "Quick Pack" Shroud system solved all of Analogic’s packaging problems. Without the need of heat-sealing or vacuuming, the Static Intercept® 3 mil bottom sheet and 4 mil custom build shroud can be applied in just 7 minutes. With Static Intercept’s sacrificial means of corrosion protection, the material will continue to offer some protection, even if the barrier is punctured or torn. Analogic’s equipment would be safe from atmospheric attacks in shipment, as well as in storage for long periods of time, and under varied environmental conditions.
Results: No, Zero, Returns since Implementation
Since implementing the packaging program, utilizing the Static Intercept® shrouds and bottom sheets, Analogic hasn’t had a single return due to corrosion in transit or in storage. In addition:
