October 27th, 2017 · No Comments

The ability to manufacture quality parts with extreme precision and stamping excellence means nothing if we can’t get those parts to our customers safely, quickly, and efficiently. To meet the needs of our customers to the fullest extent possible, we developed our Just-In-Time delivery system, and we continue to perfect the effectiveness of our packaging and shipping methods. At Thomas Engineering Company, we may provide industry leading rapid prototyping and precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN, but we also maintain an emphasis on a waste-free manufacturing, packing, and delivery system.

To support our system of Just-In-Time delivery, we maintain comprehensive packaging and shipping capabilities as a part of our value-added services.  Because our precision stamped parts are often delicate, complex, and stamped at extremely close tolerances, packaging and shipping becomes a major consideration for the final products. With our Just-In-Time delivery abilities, our customers receive orders quickly without the dangers of part damage. Thanks to our specialty packing systems, we’re also able to significantly reduce waste and time during the process of designing and fabricating unique packaging.

 Tape & Reel Packaging

For many large orders, our tape & reel packaging methods are highly effective to create reduced-waste protective packaging that accommodates thin-stamped, fragile parts. The streamlined technique of automated-packing with tape & reel materials is most beneficial for shipping large orders of complex precision stamped micro-miniature, miniature, and medium sized parts designed for precise functions in the medical, electronic, and automotive industries. With tape & reel packaging alongside Just-In-Time delivery through TEC, you can expect high quality parts on schedule without wasting additional resources on excess packing materials and time.

Specialty Packaging

Along with tape & reel packaging, TEC Just-In-Time delivery services also include specialty packaging design for certain orders. While our standard packaging is highly effective for shipping thin stamped, micro-miniature, miniature, and medium sized parts, there are some unique, highly advanced parts that demand special packaging. For these orders, TEC utilizes specialty packaging while maintaining our low-waste, effective Just-In-Time delivery system values.

If you need an order filled for precision stamped parts, look no further than Thomas Engineering Company. Not only do we offer state-of-the-art rapid prototyping software and design capabilities, industry leading precision metal stamping services, and additional tooling and assembly, we also provide advanced packaging and Just-In-Time delivery for parts of all sizes and complexities.
