Insert trays for boxes

With the wide range of possibilities that you have to pack your product, it is necessary to have the choice between different shapes.

In any case, AMANDIS and its in-house department of engineering will develop the tooling that will allow them to realise exactly the insert tray you are looking for.

During our engineering process, we will ensure that your insert tray will unstack easily without getting damaged. We also have the possibility to design finger grips in order to make it easier to take the tray out of its box.

Cale pour étuis à fenêtre

Les étuis à fenêtre laissent voir les produits qui se trouvent à l'intérieur sans pour autant qu'il soit possible de les prendre ou même de les toucher, du fait de la présence d'une feuille de polyester transparent dans la fenêtre.

Ces étuis, qui sont souvent réalisés dans un carton plat d’une densité d'environ 250 g/m3, ont des arêtes relativement fragiles pouvant être endommagées lors de simples manipulations.

La cale à trottoir sera donc parfaite pour venir renforcer l'étui par l'intérieur.

For smaller boxes that usually don’t have any polyester film as window, you could use our insert tray with straight edges. It has no borders, which makes its production much cheaper.

Insert trays for box sets:

Insert trays for box sets are made of a thick paperboard and are overlaid with a very sophisticated paper. Both pieces are usually completely independent from each other and have most of the time no clear window.

Opening the box let you discover the whole insert tray. The highest the tray is, the biggest will be the gap between the inside walls of the box and the insert tray. This empty space is the consequence of the draft angle that is necessary to unmould the insert.

For this reason, it is important to design an insert tray that will be as low as possible so that it is as near as possible from the inside walls of the box.

We have many solutions to get around that.

The first would be to use an insert tray without top edges. It is completely flat and either with borders or not.

An insert tray with hidden draft angle will allow you to reduce this empty space in creating additional shapes.

In an insert tray with cut borders, we are cutting the angles of the borders partially. In this case, the top of the insert will have the same dimensions as the inside walls of the box. Once the tray will be in place, there won’t be any empty space anymore.

Warning: An insert tray can seem to be absolutely adequate and hold the products in place. However, it could become a real disaster later… If the easy stacking and unstacking hasn’t been included into the engineering process, a lot of trays will get damaged and you will waste a lot of time.
