The plastic trays manufactured by CNC Plastics are primarily used as either WIP (work in progress), or shipping trays in manufacturing environments, or as inserts for retail packaging. Material choice is dictated by intended application, as is overall size. In manufacturing environments custom-formed plastic trays make an ideal choice as an alternative to cardboard cartons with dividers. Our trays are cost-competitive with cardboard dividers, but have the added benefit of being dust-free when used in the correct way. In a shipping capacity plastic trays act to protect products from impact and contact which can create major problems and final rejection rates when using bulk shipping. Because the trays are custom formed to correspond with the specific parts to go in them, they aide in organization in plants and shipping and allow for easier inventory where counting is necessary. WIP trays are more robust and offer the added benefit of the ability to be used in automated robotic systems to aide in pick-up where exact placement is required. Plastic WIP trays lead to a cleaner and more well-structured assembly environment, and are designed with durable plastics to stand up to extended use. Many of our ABS trays go for years before needing replacement even with heavy use in demanding applications.
