Vacuum formed Component Holders
Stackable component holders from a frame tool
An individual base insert is developed for the product being packaged, and this is fitted into an existing frame tool. In this way the same frame can be reused as often as required. Frame tools are characterised by the special contour of the frame. With that, precise positioning is possible, so that the component holders can also be deployed on automatic conveyer systems.
Stackable component holders
When the height of the product permits, the component holders can be designed to stacked. This means: More products stored on the same footprint. Sensitive components, stored in stacked component holders, are protected from dust and dirt.
Component holders that stack and nest
Stack and nest component holders can be stacked one on top of the other when full. When the products are removed, the empty component holders can be rotated 180 degrees and then nested inside each other. This enables a space saving of up to 80% possible when transporting empty.
Component holders as container inserts
If precision parts have to be delivered in a plastic container, such as a VDA-KLT, a RAKO or a EUROTEC, then it is sensible to first secure these parts into a component holder, which is then inserted into a suitable plastic container. If there is a change to the component series at a later date, the plastic containers can remain in use and only the insert need be replaced.
Base and lid in one: intermediate layers
First, the products to be packed are placed into the cavities of the first component holder. Onto that, a further component holder is placed, the base contour of which fits exactly onto the layer underneath. In this manner, the upper component holder sits on the inserted products of the tray underneath. The design of intermediate layers is complex. First, the cavities for the precise fitting location of the components must be designed. In addition, the base of the component holders must be made in such way that it can be stacked onto the parts underneath.
