Custom Packaging

In addition to the packaging design and prototyping services already provided by FCA, our state of the art packaging development center houses packaging testing equipment, including a hydraulic vibration table for transportation testing, a compression table, and an incline impact sled.

With high speed video, accelerometers, and full diagnostic and ISTA-certified report capabilities, FCA can provide your organization with tested and validated packaging designs without the need for a third party testing lab or engineering group. We can perform several testing sequences to ISTA standards.

Let us reduce your testing costs, lower your rapid prototyping timelines, and improve the packaging that protects your valuable product.

 
 

Our Design Methodology

We employ superior design, engineering, and production practices to meet the just-in-time, low volume, and highly customized packaging requirements of our customers. With patent holding engineers on staff, and a Packaging Design and Engineering Center with SolidWorks, Pro-E or universal CAD design, virtual Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and full testing capabilities, FCA provides our customers the flexibility to quickly and cost effectively adapt packaging solutions while minimizing time and expense.

Package Testing

Our ISTA-certified testing lab tests and validates our customized wood, steel, and hybrid packaging to protect billions of dollars of heavy industrial equipment as effectively as possible.

We provide the following tests to simulate the conditions faced during transit to meet specific ASTM packaging standards:

  • Vibration Tests
  • Inclined Impact Tests
  • Compression Tests
  • Drop Tests
  • FEA
Our ability to test and validate packaging without needing a third party grants the flexibility to deliver a highly customized product on a just-in-time basis with:

  • Faster lead times
  • Lower packaging costs
  • More customization for better protection
