Custom Thermoformed Plastics: Create Tangible Ideas

June 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

It's common to hear about innovations in technology and engineering. I find it rare, though, to hear how companies can work with engineers and make their own products. Engineers are the minds to make your ideas come alive. For example, I have a few friends trying to complete their engineering degree. They put a lot into their degree, financially speaking, but we all know they will be making the future revelations in various industries. Material handling occupations are easily the ones who have ideas to create better thermoforming materials. I used to work with wooden pallets, which do what they are supposed to, but I would look around the back room and notice many of them were broken and unusable.

Engineers have created solutions for returnable packaging. Thermoforming ideas can be customized to how you use your materials. Currently, thermoforming plastics are waterproof, easy to clean, easy to restack, and always forklift friendly. Like I said wooden pallets do the job they are supposed to do just fine, but for longer lasting pallets with more uses, plastic has won the fight again. It seems since plastic has been introduced into every market, its only benefited industries that use it. That said, plastic can also be recycled, which is nice because once you've worn your grocery pallet out, you can feel good you've helped the environment.

Modern material handling solutions have been developed to withstand the shipping industry. During shipments packages can get damaged, crushed, cracked, dropped, in general, mistreated. Thermoformed plastics are able to handle the tortures that shipping can involve. Products making a 3,000-mile journey cross-country better be able to handle that long of a trip. Food crate lids are able to allow foods to breathe and be protected against potential damage. These innovations seem so obvious. Making ideas something concrete can take time. Time to perfect. Time to be able to say that it's the greatest product for material handling. Plastic pallets have been tried and tested and are capable to handle the shipping process 30 times longer than wooden pallets. That means that you are lowering shipping costs since you won't have to restock supplies as often.

I am an engineering mind. However, I feel that I possess the creative mind. If you're like me, you have these wonderful, colorful, maybe even innovative solutions in your head. It's the getting the idea made into a tangible product. Creative minds have more support these days. I'd utilize those engineered minds.
