Protection from impact damage is one of the most important functions of packaging. For some packaging components the protection of fragile products is actually the primary function. Such ‘fragility packaging’ is available in a multitude of materials and forms. Very often, fragility packaging is manufactured from aerated plastics (polystyrene foam, expanded PE), but also(corrugated) cardboard, shaped paper pulp, inflatable bags and even expanded clay are used. As is often the case in the packaging world, there are a number of standard solutions, but generally the packaging is tailor-made.

Thermoforming is ideally suited for the manufacture of tailor-made protective packaging. ANL Plastics is the exclusive supplier of the Geospring® system in Europe. This packaging system uses the patented Geospring® end caps, trays or even corner pieces. Multipacks, with or without a thermoformed cover, are also available under the Upad brand name. All of these protective parts are designed with a spring section. When a protected object falls from a height, the thermoformed springs come into action. In this way both the shock of impact and the vibrations are absorbed. The system enables the ‘caps’ to be used to offer a wide range of impact protection (G forces) and vibration damping without using a large quantity of plastic.

Geospring® offers three clear ecological advantages over conventional foam packaging :
  • Volumetric savings – Thermoformed Geospring® fragility packaging stacks neatly (nesting). On average, the stacks are 10 to 15 times more compact than the equivalent polystyrene products, which are not nestable but stack on top of one another. The pallet occupancy is therefore much greater and this ensures lower transportation and logistics costs.
  • Weight saving – Geospring® fragility packaging uses a minimum of plastic and allows the cardboard outer packaging to be minimised.
  • Choice of materials - Geospring® can be manufactured either partially or even completely from recycled materials. The Geospring® packaging itself can also be recycled. This enables ‘closed loops’ to be created for assembly points where the Geospring® packaging of components can be returned. After processing, they are turned into new foil and Geospring® products.

Although the Geospring® system is mainly used for packaging computers and peripherals such as hard disks, laptops, monitors and so on, the applications are infinitely more numerous. The technology can certainly be used for other consumer electronics. Applications in more traditional industries are certainly possible.

The Geospring® concept is based on six patents held by Packaging Plus LLC (USA). ANL Plastics has an exclusive production and sales licence for Europe. Together we offer a unique worldwide service: design, engineering, tooling and QC procedures are interchanged as that identical products can be obtained throughout the world.
