Re: Tamper proof?

Jack, I think you're right. To the extent that shrinkwrap provides tamper-proof benefits, then this design can, too. But even shrinkwrap isn't really tamper-proof against a knife or box-cutter.

LOW COST PACKAGING

Hello Ann--Great post.  Well you've done it again, made me look like a hero.   My company has been looking for methods to improve packaging and reduce costs for one client; i.e. Universal Assemblies, LLC in East Tennessee.  This looks like one method of doing just that.  They build to order and have minimal inventory of finished products.  The problem arises with companies supplying components in cardboard cartons and not returnables.  We then have to purchase suitable containers to re-ship assemblies.  These must be robust and go the distance relative to shipments by common carriers, UPS, FedEx, etc. etc.  Many thanks for the information.  Again--great information.

bobjengr, glad we can help you look good by providing information you can use to do your job. I wrote about this because it looked like a clever, well thought-out design and execution of a solution to a common problem. Thanks for letting us know you agree.
