MSS Precision Crating works with a number of top universities and institutions across the region, delivering quick, safe and efficient lab moves to destinations nationwide. Because we have developed a strong reputation since our establishment in 1978, these industries trust in our years of expert experience and exceptional service.

Recently, MSS prepared an electrical engineering lab to be shipped from a university in Princeton, New Jersey to the University of Michigan.

Challenge
Our technicians were charged with developing a plan to effectively package and http://mss1.com/crating/custom-crating-servicescrating the contents of an academic organic photovoltaic clean room lab for its move from NJ to MI. The project required careful consultation and detailed coordination with the university’s Electrical Engineering staff.

Planning
MSS personnel were required to thoroughly suit-up in clean room apparel in order to survey the high-tech equipment. It was also necessary for our crating technicians to develop a deep understanding of the function of each piece in the lab to ensure that the proper packing techniques were correctly implemented. The order in which we packed and dismantled the lab and the overall size of each shipping case was also critical.

Process
During the consultation phase, it was determined by our personnel that the lab equipment needed to be dismantled in an order that not only enabled the lab technicians to continue working, but also improved the configuration at the endpoint destination. All packing crates were built employing foam-cushioned shock mount bases and hermetically sealed Mylar bags with moisture absorbing desiccant packs.

Result
The lab equipment was successfully shipped from NJ to a university in MI through a process that allowed lab technicians to continue working.
