Vacuum formed trays help protect parts
04 December 2017
William Hughes has expanded its range of products for the aerospace and hydraulic industries, adding a range of standard size and bespoke vacuum formed trays.
The trays are designed to protect high value, precision manufactured parts against physical damage or contamination from foreign bodies during transportation and storage and are particularly useful with products supplied to William Hughes for ultrasonic cleaning. The stackable trays also help customers maintain accurate inventory control as part of a lean manufacturing programme.
The standard range is available in clear (0.5mm thick), white or black (2mm thick) high impact polystyrene up to 56 x 81cm in size with a clear top available if required. Recyclable materials are used wherever possible and there is a choice of pocket sizes and configurations to suit a wide range of applications.
Bespoke trays can be manufactured to customer’s specifications and these can be supplied in small batch quantities forunusual or complex shaped components. Alternatively, William Hughes can design suitable trays using examples of the components to be stored. Where there is the need to protect special finishes or threaded components, caps and diaphragms can be supplied to ensure components are in pristine condition when they are required for use.
Vacuum formed trays are part of an extensive range of precision components available from William Hughes for the aerospace and hydraulic industries.
