About CCI

CCI Staff Picture
Being the best at ESD safe packaging…

It’s always fun and rewarding to be the best at something. Back in 1978 our founder chose static control packaging when he invented Corstat – the very first conductive corrugated packaging. We led then and we are still the leader today. And quite frankly, we like being the leader. Through the years we’ve tackled and solved thousands of static issues and developed a lot of expertise in creating static control solutions for the problems our customers face moving circuit boards and components.

Back in the day…

We offered Corstat, Corstat and more Corstat to shield products from static. Sometimes we got creative and added foam for extra cushioning. Today Corstat is still the most trusted static shielding box and the foundation of many of our static control solutions, but we’ve also grown in our manufacturing capabilities and ESD package design creativity.

Today’s CCI is about design, vertical integration…and a whole lot of inventory

To remain the leader in static safe packaging and handling we’ve evolved into an organization that is able to manufacture and design the widest range of ESD solutions. That’s why today, CCI:

  • Thermoforms ESD safe plastics
  • Leads the industry in conductive fluted plastic with Durastat totes, custom printing and die cutting
  • Injection molds conductive boxes and parts,
  • Fabricates proprietary permanent ESD foams
  • Provides complete package assemblies
  • Offers in-house tooling and rapid prototyping.

And now, we introduce the exciting new Tacki Pak technology.

Our vertical integration puts us in the position to choose the most cost effective way to meet your needs. We take pride in providing unique solutions that match the way you want your system to work.

When you add our package design and manufacturing expertise with our raw material inventory and stock selection, you have CCI’s formula for success.

Cost Benefits

Real Cost vs. Purchase Price

mfg-06CCI looks at the 'Real Cost' when making ESD packaging recommendations. First and foremost, all physical and ESD requirements must be met. The cost of the package must be reasonable in proportion to the value of the product packaged and handled. The following lists other factors that CCI considers in making its final recommendations.

  • Labor cost of loading and unloading the package
  • Storage space and the associated cost
  • Shipping cube
  • Purchase price of the package
  • Potential for static damage
  • Potential for physical damage
  • Reusability
  • Recycling and environmental issues
  • Packaging shelf-life requirements

Bulk Board Shipping/Returnable

A common problem in the electronics industry is the movement of static sensitive circuit boards in-plant and from subcontractor sites to OEMs. The traditional method has been to bag all the boards, load the board into a Kraft corrugated tote and ship in this manner. The more recent trend is toward eliminating the bags by procuring conductive Corstat™ corrugated boxes. While the initial purchase price of Corstat™ is more than Kraft, the long run savings can be very substantial. To survive repeated handling, it is important that the totes are built from the appropriate materials. CCI.s Corstat™ coating actually extends the life of corrugated. In addition, it is important to design the package with all die-cut and bent over wall construction.

Case Study: Corstat Grady Box vs. Kraft RSC and Bags

Assumptions:
  • Boxes are RSC's. Partitions are single wall slotted style
  • Boxed and Bags are used for one cycle only
  • 20 Boards per box, boards are 8" x 10" x 1"
  • 2500 Box sets are required
 Corstat Grady BoxKraft Tote and Shielding Bags
Box Assembly $6.00 ea $2.75
Shielding Bags   $4.00
Labor $.50 $3.00
Total Cost $6.50 $9.75
Other Considerations - Charge Generating
Materials None Kraft Box
Recyclable Yes Box-Yes / Bag-No
Labor at customer site $.50 $3.00

Bulk Board Shipping/One Way

In many situations boards are shipped long distances and it is not practical to reuse the packaging. In these applications the box should be built to withstand the abuse of transportation, but not for continuous reuse. A sturdy but much more economical style of package can be designed. Here it is sufficient to use single wall construction. An anti-static foam pad on the top and bottom are excellent for shock and vibration. Labor can be a large percentage of the cost of bulk shipping of circuit boards. The best package is likely to minimize labor on the shipping and receiving end. Yet, the package must get the contents to their destination safely with respect to the physical and electrical sensitivity of the product.
