Sustainable Packaging in the Age of Internet of Things
With almost every product on the market, there is an electronic component. In today’s age of Internet of Things, more consumers are demanding smart products. End-users are requesting the ability to program products, gather data, and even analyze their usage to help make life easier.
Manufacturers are implementing electronics at an extremely fast pace. In doing so, those electronic parts require special care during assembly, transport, and even storage. You’ll need a conductive plastic container in order to handle electronic parts correctly throughout the supply chain, and SSI SCHAEFER can help.
Smart Products Require a Smart Container
Electrostatic dissipative packaging is different than regular reusable plastic packaging. Electrostatic dissipative or ESD packaging works by acting as a conduit for an electrical charge. ESD packaging contains special thermoplastic additives, which act as a conductive antistatic and dissipative to help minimize the risk of electrical components creating an electrostatic charge. By using ESD reusable packaging, the container ensures a safe path to the ground in order to prevent a positive charge accumulation. This protection, helps ensure the safety of your precision parts.
SSI SCHAEFER has a full line of ESD reusable packaging for all of your electronic components—even your most sensitive electronic parts. SSI SCHAEFER manufacturers ESD containers by using a precise method for combining just the right elements—including fiber, steel, and even carbon powder to ensure the utmost protection for your electronic parts.
