Automotive Tie Rod tray

This tray was design to reduce the amount of plastic in the material handling tray.  Typically trays are designed the full length of the part. This one is about 1/5th the rods size.  It holds one end of the part as the tray is filled, then another tray is added holding the opposite end of the parts in spec. while the next layer can also be added. 

This unique package had some challenges with the design due to each of the ends of the tie rods had to held to a specific length.  The trays were originally expendable, however after customer noticed they could re-used the tray the thickness of plastic was increased so the dunnage could be re-used for the life of the program.
