Ship it Safely with Vibration Impact Reduction

February 02, 2015

It is not enough in the business of product manufacturing to simply create a useful product and find vendors who wish to sell it to consumers. The product not only needs to be made well and live up to the standards of the retailer and consumer, but of course the product needs to arrive on time and in pristine condition. The promise of a quality product arriving consistently in solid condition with little to no breakage in shipping will assure that your customers will continue to make your product in demand.

Clearly, it is imperative for manufacturers of any product on the market that the shipping containers that are used to escort said product from the manufacturing facility to the merchant or contractor provide safe protection against the inevitable impacts that occur during the all-important process of product transport. New shock isolators that can be added to shipping pallets can now ensure the safe passage of your product to its desired destination.

With the assistance of renowned equipment manufacturers and experienced shipping professionals, engineers have now created a system that provides shock isolators for cargo containers, which vastly decreases the chances of the resulting damage to your product during truck, ship or air transport.

These impact reducing shock isolator pads work in many different applications by either creating space between the all-important cargo and its outer container or by absorbing material in the containers much the same way that a running shoe insole absorbs the shape of a human foot. In both instances, the impact reducing pads protect items that are on shipping pallets from damaging impacts.

Outside the realm of manufacturing, any business that specializes in moving goods of any kind from one place to another can benefit from the same technology, including export companies, shipping companies, auto transfer companies, or mass mail order companies. The viscous nature of the shock isolators used in these cargo containers can also be used in a multitude of other ways, including machine parts, to also assure your product’s safe arrival to its destination.

As well as assisting in eliminating unnecessary damage to cargo during transit, impact reducing shock isolator pads can save the sending party from having to hire a special air trailers and or pay freight rates at high additional cost. Because the pads are made with high quality modern materials, they retain their shape and ability to absorb impact in both hot and cold climates, making them ideal for almost any shipping situation. The memory of the material is strong as well, and it will always return back to its original shape and size, regardless of the number of compressions it has endured. For specialty items, the shock isolators can be manufactured to fit the precise shape of your product, further ensuring the security of its travels.

When it comes to keeping customers happy and returning for more, it’s vitally important that manufacturers consider taking extra precautions to assure the safety of products being shipped cross country or across the sea.
