Electronic Packaging: 5 Facts About Thermoform Packaging

When it comes to packaging, every industry has unique needs and the electronics industry is no exception. The team at Indepak has worked with many electronics firms throughout the years and we believe that thermoform plastics are the ideal option for those needing custom electronic packaging and there are several reasons why, including the following.

1. Thermoform Packaging Protects Your Product
At Indepak, we work with thin-gauge thermoform plastics, but it would be wrong to assume that just because we use thin sheets of plastic, your product won’t be well-protected. Many thermoform plastics are highly impact resistant and moisture resistant. In addition, we offer many sealing options, to further insure that your product won’t be affected by moisture or tampering.

2. Thermoform Plastics Keeps Static-Sensitive Products Safe
While keeping products safe from moisture, tampering and other types of damage is important, many electronic products have high static sensitivity. At Indepak, we work with a myriad of materials, from conductive to dissipative, to ensure that your static-sensitive products are well protected.

3. Thermoformed Foam Is An Option
Our facility includes multiple lines of high-speed thermoforming equipment, and these machines can process both thin-gauge thermoform plastics as well as thermoform foam. Foam packaging can be an excellent option for electronics because it is extremely protective and lightweight.

4. Thermoforming Packaging Is Versatile
Thermoform plastic is an ideal option because we can craft packaging that surrounds and protects your electronic parts or product exactly. For instance, you might consider having us design a thermoform tray with multiple cavities to hold individual components or parts. We also can create clamshells for each part and then package these clamshells in thermoform foam or a thermoform tray. These are just a few of the options that might be considered as we design your custom electronic packaging.

5. Thermoform Electronic Packaging Is Affordable
Everyone loves saving money, and using thermoform plastics or thermoformed foam can help you stay within your packaging budget. Thermoplastics are some of the most affordable packaging materials available, and thermoform plastics also save you money because of their light weight.

After all, lightweight packaging is cheaper to ship and shipping costs make up a huge portion of every manufacturer’s budget. Additionally, we can create packaging that perfect surrounds your product precisely, which eliminates packaging waste. You will be able to ship more units simply because we can create packaging that is as small as possible. Nearly all of the materials we use are recyclable, as well, so consumers should have no trouble recycling your packaging after they have purchased your product.
