Foam alone creates a stand
To showcase its range, MSA Foams will exhibit in a stand made entirely from foam! Specialising in the design and manufacture of protective packaging for components or delicate equipment that requires safe transportation, the company, part of the Peli Group, uses the stand to showcase the various colours and foam densities available. The in-house design team
created the stand to demonstrate the product range, the design service and manufacturing capabilities. Separate panels interlock neatly using jigsaw tabs for the visible joints of the walls’ panels, showing the precision of the foam cutting and finish, in addition to strengthening the connection between the stand panels. To demonstrate the cutting
technology at the 31,000 sq ft facility, there is a complex water-jet cut map of the UK, showing the areas of the business development team and a laser engraved, precision-cut Aztec design. Even
scheduling to invoicing With over 25 years of sheet metal, engineering and fabrication experience, MIE Solutions has developed MIETrak Pro MRP (materials requirement planning) production control software. With hundreds of UK users, and thousands worldwide, it has become an industry- specific, complete MRP software solution that is affordable, easy to use, install and implement, says the company.
