Manufactured Polyethylene Foam Cell Dunnage for the Automotive Industry

Interior Packaging Design can produce custom foam dunnage up to 5" thick for use in a variety of industries. This polyethylene foam cell dunnage was designed and manufactured for a customer in the automotive industry. The cross-linked polyethylene foam was cut on our water jet cutting machine to nominal tolerances of .125". Plastic corrugated trays were die cut to serve as the base of the dunnage. After the individual pieces were cut and trimmed, the foam insert was glued to the corrugated trays.

Upon completion, dunnage was inspected according to our SPC check and quality control protocols. We produced 4,295 of these four-cell trays with a total lead time of six weeks. Our water jet cutting capability allows us to cut intricate and custom shapes into materials to create custom dunnage without the high tooling costs or long lead times associated with traditional die cutting methods. Samples are often available in only a few days, and full production orders can often be delivered within four weeks.
