What Makes a Chopper?

Posted by Joe Spitz on Jun 11, 2018 3:01:41 PM

In a recent conversation, a prospect looking at our web site saw the picture of the efficiently barrier-wrapped helicopters for storage and commented that “this barrier packaging may be too much” for them. In sales and marketing, that is one of the problems with showing the most impressive applications! Folks may think that they are priced out of usage, but in most instances, that is not the case.

The Big Three: Mechanical, Electronics & Optics

Posted by Greg Spitz on Feb 25, 2016 10:43:00 AM

In professional basketball there is an adage that two great players are good to have on a team but a “big three” is needed to win championships. That notion has been supported in the past and with current day teams.

To continue the analogy, I think of the “Big Three” in manufacturing as being mechanical, electronics, and optics, all functioning efficiently together for the final product to work as designed. Point of purchase equipment, bank machines, scanning equipment, inspection equipment, and robotics are all tools and equipment containing the “Big Three”.

Electronics Corrosion

Posted by Greg Spitz on Oct 6, 2015 9:12:00 AM

To be clear, the difference between electronics and other electrical systems is that electronics include active components to control the flow of electricity, whereas non-electronic electrical systems use mechanical switches or relays. The development of the vacuum tube (the first active component invented) allowed for the creation of far more complex systems than was possible with prior technology. Then solid-state transistors allowed electronics to shrink to sizes unthinkable before. Certainly at this point it is trivial to say that electronics are ubiquitous in society today and will only continue to become more so in the coming years, all the way up to the singularity, at which point we will become our own technology. As electronics have developed through the years, they have been given increasingly more important tasks. From air traffic control to car computers to medical equipment to missile defense, systems which include electronics control and protect our lives everyday. Thus it is essential that we know how to maintain them, for which we must also know how they degrade.

20 Definitions on Electrostatic Discharge - ESD Month- Part 2

Posted by Joe Spitz on Feb 18, 2014 2:29:00 PM

Even if you are an electrical engineer and these are elementary terms from your high school and college days, it may be fruitful to review their meanings and logic to see if you currently have sufficient packaging to protect your company’s products and assets.

February is ESD Month - Series Part 1

Posted by Joe Spitz on Feb 18, 2014 1:25:00 PM

At Liberty Packaging, where our clients are mostly industrial manufacturers, we have labeled the month of February ESD Month, as the weather across much of the United States is colder with less humidity.  Electrostatic discharge is more likely to happen at this time of the year, for instance, when you pull two articles of clothing apart, you hear that crackling noise (charge devise model or CDM) or when you walk across the carpet to touch a metal door knob and zap!....that's the Human Body Model (HBM).

Intercept Technology Packaging - the Jim Thorpe of Packaging

Posted by Joe Spitz on Dec 21, 2011 9:40:00 AM

I was watching my beloved Patriots last Sunday and, at the risk of alienating football fans dedicated to other teams, I am continually impressed by Coach Bill Belichick’s methodology. Strange as it may seem, his methods are personal for me because of the barrier packaging we represent.  Belichick’s personnel system flies in the face of what is conventional today and this approach is similar to our Intercept Technology barrier packaging. Let me explain.

3 Styles of Intercept Technology™ Packaging for Electronics

Posted by Joe Spitz on Oct 18, 2011 8:18:00 AM

We’re often asked: when considering Intercept Technology heavy duty flexible film barrier packaging for the storage and/or shipping of electronics, which product would be best?  Intercept barrier protection is currently used for all sorts of electronics such as complete equipment, circuit cards, printed wire boards, chassis and frames, even the most sensitive devices and chips.

Here are three Intercept materials that protect electronics:
