Nothing fits like a tailor-made suit. Tight, where it should be, and loose, where it needs to be. We make the bespoke suit for your logistics. Individually matched to your requirements, we design containers that protect your goods ideally from the stress of transport. These then are a deep-drawn, extruded or thermoformed perfect fit. Whether it is stable outer packaging that resists knocks and bumps, or smoothly fitting inner packaging that holds your goods in place with its accurate fit - your transport goods are nowhere better protected than in an individually designed box.
The standard plastics for logistics containers are high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP). WALTHER also uses technical and recycled plastics (Procyclen) and completely regeneratively produced plastics.
For the production of boxes for electronic goods, we use special plastics that can dissipate electrostatic charges. These highly specialised plastics contain carbon and are therefore conductive.
Conductive twin-wall sheets made from polypropylene facilitate extremely flexible container solutions for the electronics industry. Flexfold boxes by WALTHER are safe and foldable.
Twin-wall sheets made from extruded polypropylene facilitate the manufacture of large containers or support frames which are extremely light in relation to their volume.
If interior compartments are used in containers which have to gently secure sensitive goods, we cover the stable interior structures with soft textile materials which protect the sensitive surfaces.
Interior packaging made of plastic foam allows goods to be fitted precisely into a transport box. Such interior packaging prevents the goods to be transported from slipping during transport and is very light.
If plastic containers or pallets have to deal with extreme loads placed on top of them, steel reinforcements can be integrated in the plastic material. The castors of our dollies also have steel bearings and can support extremely high loads.
Plastic injection moulding is the standard process for manufacturing reusable transport containers used by WALTHER. State-of-the-art foldable and collapsible boxes are injected into large steel moulds and assembled automatically.
In thermoforming, heated plastic sheets are mechanically formed using single-sheet and twin-sheet processes. Once they have cooled, they retain the shape they have obtained. This technology is used, for example, for our MegaPack pallets and lids.
In the extrusion process, the heated liquid plastic is permanently ejected through a nozzle to form large sheets. The extrusion method is used to manufacture the twin-wall sheets of our large containers and interor compartments or spacer tubes.
Welding allows us to create new containers from existing products. Ideal for size adjustments of existing boxes.
Workpieces can be precisely fitted into trays for transport. This prevents them from slipping during transport. Plastic tubes allow trays to be stacked inside the box without the workpieces touching each other.
Compartments are the simplest form of container interiors. They separate the goods to be transported from each other without contact. WALTHER compartments consist of twin-wall sheets, are lightweight and foldable for return transport.
Our Flexbox folding containers are both: container and interior compartment in one. They are lightweight, stable and foldable, so they can be used as a complete box or for the interior subdivision of a larger container.
Foam padding is used as additional protection in interior compartments during transport. They protect the goods to be transport against shifting and optimally absorb any external impact and shocks.
For goods with particularly sensitive surfaces we can cover the external surfaces of our container interiors with protective textiles. They are individually matched to your goods to protect them from scratches. Or we can supply you with textile compartments, which enclose and separate your sensitive goods,
WALTHER containers are usually the best place to be for your valuable goods - whether in transport or in the warehouse. That is why they are used in numerous industries, in plant-to-plant traffic in production right up to the assembly lines, or in retail between central warehouse and stores.
Only a container optimally adapted to the transport good offers optimal protection on the transport route. Our experts know how best to protect your goods through container design and choice of material.
As little transport of air as possible. This also applies to return transport. That is why were are specialists for foldable and collapsible boxes of all sizes. Saving up to 80% in volume is our everyday business.
Transport goods do not only need to be protected from external influences but also from themselves. In order to avoid damaging contact of the parts transported with each other, we put interior compartments into our containers.
Interior compartments subdivide the interior of the container into individual boxes. These are adapted to the transport good and can be used for the sorted transport of different components.
Container interiors do not need to be organised horizontally. The interior of the boxes can also be subdivided vertically. This is ideal for heavy workpieces or parts requiring special surface protection.
The interior design of the WALTHER boxes ensures optimal safety and order. No effort is spared, for example in transporting highly sensitive silicon wafers in semiconductor logistics.
In order to keep the lids, side walls and pallets of our large containers in safe contact, the parts are either firmly connected to each other by built-in locks or they have strapping grooves to securely hold a strap.
For easy access to the transport goods, many of our large containers have access flaps. To protect against unauthorised access, we offer seals to reliably lock lids.
Whole stacks of boxes can be moved on the WALTHER dollies. The large castors can be easily navigated and, thanks to TPE tyres, are very quiet in motion. Once the destination has been reached, the brakes make sure that the shipping tower is safely kept from moving any further.
Our large containers from the MegaPack range are particularly flexible. They can be offered in custom sizes and thus adapted either to the requirements of the transport good or of the interior dimensions of containers.
WALTHER containers for collecting PET bottles and similar goods unite several advantages: they are lightweight, easy to handle, can hold a large volume and look good even in the store.
Rolling cages are suitable to stack existing containers or as a specifically designed transport method for in-store traffic. Whatever is transport in whichever way, what they have in common is good mobility within the store.
Two become one - thanks to the cut-and-weld technology, we can combine standard containers or change individual boxes, allowing us to adapt the size or vary structural elements.
Modern automated warehouses cannot deal with different packaging dimensions and materials. That is why we offer trays matched to the OPM (Order Picking Machinery) warehouse technology.
To print design films, the designs are transferred onto the edge of the container by pressure and temperature immediately after injection moulding. For large series, this allows fast and highly efficient in-line logo marking, which can even be multi-coloured.
At WALTHER, direct printing is a digital printing method allowing direct printing of reusable containers without intermediate carrier. With thermal transfer printing, logos and slogans can be permanently printed onto your load carriers even in smaller series. Due to the exact thermal transfer, fine lettering or even 3D data matrix codes can also be printed without problems.
In hot stamping, a foil is applied to the container under extremely high pressure, using a prefabricated die, while the container is still warm from production. Under the impact of the heat, the colour layer of the foil is impressed into the plastic surface of the container in relief. The result is very resistant.
Cold stamping is a process equivalent to subsequent relief embossing. With extreme pressure from a prefabricated stamp, a logo or lettering can be applied on flat surfaces of the container.
In relief embossing, the plastic surface of the WALTHER box is formed directly during production. By using a corresponding element in the mould, which is usually created by laser engraving, uncoloured logo embossing, brought out by light and shadow effects, is created in the injection moulded load carrier.
In screen printing, paint is transferred to the container wall through a specially exposed screen. In this way, large-area prints are also possible, especially for our MegaPack containers.
By using in-mould labelling technology, digitally and multicolour printed labels can be inseparably fused with a container during production. The surface is particularly scratch-resistant and equipped with a protective paint with lotus effect, which allows any labels stuck on unintentionally to be easily removed again.
