Product Spotlight: H-Mesh Gel-Pak VR Tray
For over 30 years, Gel-Pak has been at the forefront of developing unique carrier products that meet the needs of high technology industries. The H-Mesh Vacuum Release Tray, for example, is a product ideally suited for shipping and handling fragile high aspect ratio devices such as laser bars, modulators, and optical devices with delicate end coatings.
The H-Mesh VR-44 Tray is based on Gel-Pak's patented Vacuum Release Technology. In place of a full field VR surface, a modified mesh geometry in the shape of the letter "H" is used.
While still providing all of the proven shipping and handling benefits of the standard VR tray, the H-Mesh provides the additional benefits of:
- No contact to end surfaces of the device
- Device can be off-loaded from the underside, if needed
- Selective GEL contact area
- Reduced off-loading force
Background: Founded in 1980, Gel-Pak has developed a line of Gel-coated device carriers and handling materials that offer solutions for applications where damage during handling must be avoided. The company's proprietary elastomer technology serves as the basis of its Gel-Box, Gel-Tray, Gel-Film, and patented Vacuum Release (VR) products.
