Compacting for Better Shipping Efficiency

A NetterVibration customer filling large boxes as they sat on wood pallets was experiencing higher shipping costs than necessary due to inefficiency in filling the boxes. As the product was being fed into the box, a cone-shaped mound formed, extending above the top of the box, making it impossible to close and seal the box.

The customer used a VTF 8/12 low profile table with two NEG 25540 electric external vibrators, which is open on one side so that the pallet can be inserted onto the table from the side using only a hand pallet truck. The linear vibration supplied by the table flattened the angle of repose and allowed more components to be fed into the box. This minimized the number of boxes being shipped and therefore substantially reduced the shipping cost.
