Applications

The flexibility of ExpandOS allows you to ship items of different shapes, densities and fragilities in the same box.  While ExpandOS will work in almost any situation that requires protective packaging, we have provided some representative applications to help give you a few points of reference.

Industrial and Automotive Parts

Industrial and Automotive Parts

ExpandOS is a perfect choice when shipping fragile parts or several different parts in the same parcel where the parts are of differing fragility and density. Some representative items include headlamps, industrial bearings, machine replacement parts, metal and plastic car parts and fasteners.

Lighting Fixtures

Lighting Fixtures and Parts

The unique shapes of lighting fixtures and the accompanying glass parts and bulbs are a great fit for ExpandOS. The flexible nature of ExpandOS ensures that the shapes and highly fragile parts of your lighting fixture can be accommodated with ease.

Ceramics

Technical Ceramics, Ceramic Tiles and Prototype Parts

Given the fragility, value and cost of these items, it is important that your protection is top rate. ExpandOS is a good fit for these items given its ability to protect from impact and damage shock.

Medical, Dental and Laboratory Supplies

Medical, Dental and Laboratory Supplies

The supply business often presents very unique shipping challenges as low value, heavy items are often ordered with fragile, more expensive items. The ability of ExpandOS to keep items separated in your shipping box will ensure they arrive at their destination safely. Some examples might be in office dental supplies, machines and parts for medical use, beakers, test tubes, chemicals and bottles.

Food and Restaurant Supplies

Food and Restaurant Supplies

Bottled liquids are some of the most difficult items to protect during shipping. ExpandOS is a superior choice for these applications due to its ease of use and ability to accommodate several items in the same box. Some examples might be bottled beverages and extracts, wine, olive oil, glasses, tea pots and cooking utensils/equipment.

Pumps and Motors

Pumps and Motors

ExpandOS is a fantastic, cost effective alternative to foam and other systems for all but the heaviest pumps and motors. ExpandOS allows these items to be blocked and braced to maintain proper in-box positioning, preventing shifting and, ultimately, damage.

Dinnerware and Decorative Ceramics

Dinnerware and Decorative Ceramics

ExpandOS has a long and proven history in protecting dinnerware and decorative items such as vases, dishes, platters, mugs, blown glass and everyday plates/bowls.

Mass Distribution

Mass Distribution

While most mass distribution situations do not call for superior protection, there are cases where strategic use of ExpandOS, for high damage incidence items, for example, can dramatically reduce damage rates with very good payback rates. This strategy has been very successful in fundraising, hardware, office supply and gourmet food situations.
