The easy combination of packaging components
The innovative locking system THIMM Connect®
THIMM Packaging Systems is presenting one of its latest innovations: THIMM Connect®. It consists of a plastic locking system that connects several flat components such as corrugated cardboard, veneer or panel sheets. This enables a non-destructive opening, closing and disassembly of the packaging and therefore easy usage in a returnable system.
THIMM Connect® consists of a screw and nut. The edge thread of the nut locks securely into the inside of the packaging. Then the bolt is screwed in from the outside. No special tools or other aids are required. The benefit of this functionality is that every part can be reached and connected together, even with large packaging units.
THIMM Connect® is available in two sizes. The locking system is specifically recommended with the use of three and four-flute corrugated cardboard. THIMM Connect® is particularly suitable for use with large load carriers and returnable packaging and for the transportation of switch cabinets. If required, for example, for air freight, sealing with seals is possible. After use the packaging material can be easily separated and both the corrugated cardboard and the plastic lock can be reused or recycled.
You can view THIMM Connect® at FachPack in hall 7A on stand 248/348.
