Orbis Corp., a manufacturer of reusable packaging, has added edge wrapping to its ORBIShield capabilities. The company says this technology provides custom-designed protective dunnage that can be installed in handheld totes or bulk containers, protecting parts and components as they move through the automotive supply chain.
The edge-wrapping technology uses a heated or nonheated application method to apply Class A material to the edge of plastic corrugated dunnage. In automotive supply chains, parts and components move quickly and often across long distances. Wrapped edges are designed to reduce snags, punctures, and scrapes, and to help protect workers as they pack out parts or pull parts at the assembly line, while keeping operations running efficiently.
