Many of the stainless steel parts that come through our facility for electropolishing need customized handling and packaging due to sensitive features such as points, sharp edges, or flanges. Larger metal parts, such as protective frames or cages, often require special crating in order to not become damaged during shipping or having the crate moved from one location to another by forklift.
As part of our going commitment to provide an efficient service to our customers, NEE provides specialized packaging in accordance with customer specifications.
NEE can easily handle the detailed packaging instructions you give us. These instructions can include any and all of the following:
- Trays – How many parts to be packaged per tray, how the parts should be placed on the tray, and how many trays go into each box.
- Protective coverings / tubes / caps – Sensitive parts, such as needles or stamped parts, may require the addition of protective tape or caps. Larger parts may need to have flanges protected.
- Box packaging – How the trays should fit into the box and the type of packaging to be inserted around the trays to keep them from being damaged during shipping. Also, special box inserts that separate multiple parts.
- Crate packaging – How larger parts should be bolted into a crate and the distance between each part.
- Labels – Inside or outside or both plus exact label placement. NEE can print labels using customer-supplied information or use labels provided.
- Skid loading – The number of boxes to be placed on a skid and any wrapping specifications.
