Clip-Lok has unveiled waste-free protective packaging for transporting delicate lacquered plastic and dashboard instrument clusters from car subcontractors to the assembly line.

The 'Soft Rack' packaging allows the subcontractor to place each instrument cluster on an individual soft padded shelf that prevents the instruments from damage.

The company claims that no additional packaging such as traditional plastic bubble wrap is required for this concept, and operators can continue assembly without unwrapping any parts.

The 2P box designed by the company includes two loose parts, the lid and the front panel. The remaining side panels facilitate quick folding and assembly with steel clips that allow fast and easy fitting and removal.

Clip-Lok's Soft Rack box is folded into the internal void when it is flat-packed for return shipment to minimise costs.

Clip-Lok offers reusable, flat-packable custom-designed plywood boxes, and also provides customer support for international shipments at both the point of dispatch and on arrival.
