Crate Manufacturing and Packaging

MSS Precision Crating is an expert in crate manufacturing and packaging. We employ an expert team of technicians that participate in a comprehensive curriculum of online training through MSS University so that we can provide the highest quality crating services in the industry. Our ISO Certification demands we improve upon our expertise in crate manufacturing every year by leading the way with the latest trends and technologies in the field.

Recently, we were selected by a global assembly line systems manufacturing company out of Allentown, PA to prepare a highly intricate assembly line for shipment. For this project, we developed a custom crating solution which enabled us to get the assembly line to its final destination while meeting the precise needs of our client.

Challenge
This assembly line was extremely fragile, and due to its spindly nature, was difficult to ship. Furthermore, the immense structure dictated that it needed to be loaded and secured onto the crate base one component at a time, rather than as a whole unit.

Description
The crating solution that MSS was tasked with designing for this massive assembly unit required utilizing a 20-foot crate. Our client relied heavily on our consultative services for how to ready the line for shipment. We talked at length with the plant’s engineers to devise a plan for safe and secure delivery of all components to their final destination.

Planning
MSS thoroughly scrutinized the assembly line as a whole before disassembling it and loading it onto the crating base one unit at a time. Since the assembly line had to be entirely encompassed in Mylar bags, it was necessary for our technicians to take each stand and bolt it down. It was imperative that the assembly line reach its final destination with all integrity intact, or else the company would not receive payment.

Results
After intensive consultation with the client, MSS formulated an intuitive packaging and crating service that gave comfort to our client and delivered the assembly line safely. As a result, we now have ongoing projects with this manufacturer.
