Custom Metal Brackets for Your Shipment
Traditionally, steel strapping or wood blocking is used to secure equipment to the skid during shipping. Sometimes, that remains the best approach. But CDC Packaging often takes it one step further by manufacturing custom shipping brackets.
In an effort to better serve the needs of our customers, we invested thousands of dollars in metal stamping and metal fabrication equipment.
Meet the “Iron Worker.”
Using this machine, we manufacture high quality, custom metal shipping brackets. This might be one-of-a-kind hardware designed for your shipment, or larger production runs of custom-made brackets made to your specifications. Each custom bracket safely secures your equipment to the skids, which prevent movement of the product within its shipping container.
Our custom metal shipping brackets benefit you in a number of ways:
- Custom Design: Unlike some packaging companies, we are not limited by the one-size-fits-all metal components widely available on the market. The Iron Worker frees us in the design phase to create the best all-around precision packaging solution for your product or equipment. With it, we can make any kind of bracket, including angle brackets and corner braces in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
- Safety and Security: Steel brackets and custom hardware components are made to precise specifications to perfectly fit your equipment. This helps ensure that your shipment arrives safely at your customer’s site.
- Time: Perfect-fit custom brackets reduce the time it takes to secure your equipment to the skids. They are also easier to remove than steel strapping, saving your customers time when they unpack their crate at the destination.
- Cost: Custom brackets can reduce your overall packaging cost.
