With the continuing growth in the high value product manufacturing sector there is a need to provide new ways to store and transport high value precision parts without damage and contamination. Traditional packaging is produced from foams and elastomers using forming techniques. This provides difficulty for producing individualised packaging solutions as individual moulds and forming tools would be required. In addition present solutions do not provide adequate packaging as they can cause damage to the part in some cases. This paper explores the design and manufacture of precision machined individualised neoprene foam packaging using cryogenic CNC machining technology. Cryogenic CNC machining is discussed and an example case study is presented showing the viability and efficacy of the proposed design and manufacturing method.
