Orbis Corporation, an international manufacturer of sustainable reusable packaging and an expert in supply chain optimization, has introduced a new sealed edge technology that creates a more efficient alternative to using a stitched top edge or folded over design on the edges of plastic corrugated sheets used for divider sets that hold automotive parts. The process creates a less sharp, rounded edge—ultimately promoting better safety for both worker and product.

“The safety, comfort and efficiency of workers is an important concern in today’s fast-paced automotive assembly operations,” said Adam Glorioso, ORBIS product manager. “We [ORBIS] take this concern seriously and recognize that ergonomic packaging can drive many of these benefits.
ORBIS sealed edge dunnage is custom designed and constructed, with a focus on durability and the assurance that it will continue to drive efficiency in assembly manufacturing environments.

Additional features include:  a smooth, rounded edge for better ergonomics; available on 3.5mm to 6mm sheets; and seals across or along the flutes. The product works with the supplier’s other container divider sets

The long term implementation of ORBIS sealed edge dunnage will improve inventory control by maintaining consistent quantities in each container.  Adding a sealed edge to dunnage will optimize line-side efficiency by facilitating safer and more dependable removal and handling of parts.
