Padded packing shifts chips
Steve Bush PCB maker Cranford Circuits has introduced a way of packing its products that has reduced costs. It is also claimed to be kinder to the environment and is more convenient for its customers. The technique was established partially in response to comments from customers and from the company’s own experience with ‘fly away’ polystyrene chips. The chips have now been replaced with pre-cut padded sections made from recycled brown paper by a Padpak machine. This is fed from a roll and converts the paper to thick snake-like padded sections which are used as protection within cardboard boxes. The customer can then unpack the Cranford’s products without having to clear up afterwards.
