Medical Handling Trays

Stack and rotate | Locating design features | Tight form and cut tolerances | Repeatability

  • Handling trays for medical device assembly require tighter-than-standard tolerances be held in order to interface consistently with automation equipment. To achieve this requirement of performance repeatability, critical tolerances must be determined at the start of the design process to ensure that the corresponding thermoform tooling produces trays that integrate successfully with automation.

  • Designed to stack and rotate, where the weight of the tray load is supported by its perimeter, handling trays protect medical components when stacked, because there is clearance between the top of the product and the bottom of the tray directly on top.

  • Formed locating features allow the handling tray to intelligently-integrate with the assembly equipment. Likewise, locating design elements act as the mechanism for the automation equipment to locate the products in the cavities.

  • ESD medical handling trays dissipate the static charge of manufacturing, further detracting particulate from the tray surface, and protecting electronic components.
