Warringah Plastics now design and manufacture custom dunnage trays to help protect parts in transport. The vacuum formed dunnage trays can be designed for single or multiple use in a wide range of applications such as machining, painting, printing or delivery for assembly amongst other processes.
Using vacuum formed dunnage trays helps ensure a correct part count at both ends of the journey due to fixed cavities in each tray and also ensures similar looking left and right parts are not confused thanks to custom designed cavities.
Warringah Plastics have developed a method of designing dunnage trays which enables them to be nested when empty without jamming which means there is no costly transporting of air. When loaded with parts, the dunnage trays have the ability to sit above one another providing clearance between delicate surfaces on stored parts and trays sitting above.
The plastic vacuum forming process allows custom design of shipping trays due to lower upfront tooling costs and reduced lead times for production compared to other processes such as injection moulding. Dunnage trays can be formed any size up to 3.3m X 2.7m.
