Case Study: Box Latch™ Products at Work for Belimo USA

Abstract

This case study was performed at Belimo USA, belimo.us in conjunction with the manufacturing of its HVAC actuators and valve systems. It focuses on how the use of Box Latch™ Products has optimized assembly systems as it conserved floor space, reduced touch points and cut freight costs.

The patented Box Latch™ is placed on boxes or cartons to hold the flaps closed. It reduces the need for tape, allowing boxes to be re?used without tape?induced damage. Employing Box Latches™ enabled Belimo to replace heavy wooden crates received from their supplier with re?usable corrugate boxes, saving money and the environment. Their filled, partitioned, palletised, shrink wrapped, corrugate boxes have now been used 12 or more times for shipping parts from their downstream supplier in Wisconsin to Connecticut with empty boxes returned to Wisconsin. Moreover, applying Box Latches™ has reduced damage to box contents.
