Where appropriate spare alternative components in the kit can be returned to stores and full batch traceability can be maintained. This gives the fitter only the components they may need, thus reducing expensive waste.
CPL have been designing, manufacturing, and supplying kitting boxes for a major aircraft manufacturer for many years. The normal process is to take the BOM for the kit together with component drawings.
The component drawings can be in CAD or pdf format, alternatively we can measure actual components where drawings are not available.
Once we have the component data we are able to arrange them in an appropriate size container with the required protection. Each component location normally has a durable laser engraved label.
CPL have many years’ experience of producing vacuum formed trays for the automotive industry. We fully understand the complex logistics loops of the worldwide supply chain. This enables us to ask the right questions at the design stage to come up with the right solution.
Regardless of whether you sell industrial parts/components to B2B clients, send consumer goods to individuals, or are part of a multinational supply chain, having items damaged in transit can have a (significant) detrimental impact on your business success. CPL solutions are proven to minimise this.
Our thermo formed products start with design. We have many years’ experience of tool design and with our CAD capabilities, this enables us to effectively and efficiently work with the customer to come up with the best design possible. We are very experienced in selecting the right material to use and quickly establish the optimal gauge to give the lowest cost product that works.
At CPL we are in a unique position, in that we manufacture our own high quality sheets of plastic using our own on-site extrusion machinery and technology. Using raw plastic materials in pellet form, and returned plastic that is recycled, to enable a sustainable product (by closing the loop), we can create the exact size, finish, plastic content and colour you require.
