Foam Buyer’s Guide
Foam packaging designed and manufactured to protect your product
Foam packaging has a profound impact on the reliability of your shipment. Fabricated foam can be designed to fit any cavity such as a corrugated or plastic box, hard case, or ATA case. Protection is the most important consideration of a foam packaging system and is affected by the equipment or product’s weight, geometry, fragility, and sensitivity. The design, amount, and type of foam are important decisions to provide the correct amount of shock protection during drops, vibration protection during transit, and abrasion resistance. A foam packaging solution should also include other benefits such as organizing multiple parts and offering an attractive and easy-to-use product presentation that reflects the quality of your brand.
The right choice for custom foam for packaging
LPC has extensive experience designing and manufacturing foam packaging for applications ranging from simple end caps to complex cushioning systems for server racks and industrial equipment. We specialize in fabricated polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane, and related foam structures that have been die-cut and assembled by heat seal, cold spray, or hot melt adhesives. LPC maintains an in-stock inventory of many types of foam and can design and fabricate foam packaging on short notice in virtually any quantity.
Save time, operational expense, and reduce headaches – work directly with a foam manufacturer with state-of-the-art machines like our WARDJet waterjet cutter.
All LPC foam products are designed and manufactured in the USA in our Milpitas, California facility, where we’ve invested in state-of-the-art equipment and developed lean manufacturing capabilities and an operational team to fabricate complex foam solutions fast.
These capabilities include a high-speed state-of-the-art WARDJet J-106 waterjet cutter that enhances our ability to manufacture foam sets fast while maintaining exceptional quality. The WARDJet J-106 waterjet cutter excels at cutting common packaging materials such as polyethylene foam, neoprene, polyurethane foam, ABS, PVC, PVC foam, HDPE and plywood at lightning speeds. For you, this means:
Greater quality. No more foam insert material deformation (a common CNC machine problem!).
Greater capabilities. Fast, fully automated production of complex pieces that require chamfers and bevels (lots less hand-gluing and assembly).
Greater speed. One-pass production that is as much as 50% faster than foam fabrication on standard CNC machines.
LPC can meet your timetable with short lead times and quickly resolve any unanticipated issues if they arise. As your packaging partner, we will work beside you and your other partners to create a seamless supply chain and get your product to market.
