|The Pelco Packaging Corporation - An American Success Story|
In an attempt to decrease the rate of rejection, a sheet of thin gauge PVC was placed in a waffle iron. The engineers found that by placing one plastic "waffle" on top of another, the parts could be protected during shipment. The customer was so impressed by this special packaging that Pelco was invited to review their materials handling procedures and supply containers where critical parts were involved.
Plastic was clean, light-weight, and did not absorb moisture, unlike wood and corrugated. The tooling used for thermoforming was cost-effective, and by form-fitting a customer's part, maximum protection could be obtained. As new technology came into play, parts became smaller and electronics replaced mechanical parts. Closer tolerances were required and sub-assemblies were in need of protection from both physical damage and electric shock.
