3D Printing in a Nutshell Amatech has a large format 3D printer available in our prototype department. After some research, we’ve learned our customers expect the best when choosing us as their returnable packaging provider.

Now that sustainability has entered the mainstream, more companies are looking at whether their operations might be a good fit for reusable packaging. Indeed, according to Jerry Welcome of the Reusable Packaging Association (RPA), the industry has seen annual growth of 10 percent over the past few years. According to RPA, reusable packaging includes reusable pallets, racks, bulk containers, handheld containers, and dunnage made of durable materials such as metal, plastic, or wood. (A cardboard box, although it could be used more than once, would not be considered reusable packaging.) The benefits of using reusables are manifold, experts say. They can reduce a shipment’s impact on the environment. They are more cost-effective than buying one-way or nonreturnable packaging. They are typically stronger and easier to clean than their single-use counterparts. Finally, there’s the aesthetic appeal.
