ORBIS® Corporation Adds ORBIShield® Dunnage Fabrication Capabilities
ORBIS Adds Water Jet Cutting and Edge Wrapping to Its Dunnage Capabilities
OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — July 25, 2017 — ORBIS® Corporation, the North American leader in sustainable reusable packaging and an expert in supply chain optimization, recently introduced additional capabilities within its ORBIShield® custom dunnage fabrication business. In addition to its standard portfolio of reusable containers and pallets, ORBIS offers a range of custom manufacturing, including its ORBIShield line of protective dunnage that protects automotive parts during storage, transport and assembly.
ORBIS’ newest capabilities include:
- Water Jet Foam Cutting – This technology offers high levels of precision when cutting foam material to create dunnage. Water jet cutting has become an industry standard for foam dunnage fabrication. Paired with this state-of-the-art technology, ORBIS offers almost 10 different foam material options, providing companies with multiple options depending on the protection requirements.
- Edge Wrapping – This technology applies Class A protective fabric to the edges of rigid plastic corrugated divider sets, to create maximum part protection and improve worker handling. Edge wrapping also prevents dust from the internal walls of the dunnage.
ORBIS offers the largest variety of fabric, sheet and foam materials in the industry. At ORBIS’ Mentor, Ohio and Silao, Gto., Mexico plants, ORBIShield dunnage is designed, manufactured and integrated with hand-held totes, bulk containers and transport racks. The long-term use of dunnage improves inventory control by maintaining consistent part quantities in each container, maximizing pack density and optimizing line side efficiency by facilitating better part presentation.
