Looking for Roll Packaging End Boards - Shrink Wrapped

11/09/2016 11:37 AM

I need to find maker/source for end boards (a 18"x 18" square of say 5/8" stock with a 6" hole cut in the middle). These are used to bracket and suspend rolls during shipment.

The readily found suppliers don't have the one I need - made out of MDF not particle board and shrink wrapped.

The shrink wrapping is kind of tricky since you need an open hole in the middle of the board - I don't think many companies can do this.

      Try looking here

That'll take some research.

Loudspeaker manufacturers use tons of MDF for speaker enclosures. 18 x 18 x 5/8 with a six inch diameter hole in the middle would be easy for them, or their suppliers to do.

Here's one that might help:

Not an endorsement, just one that I found through a directed internet search.

Good luck.

I'm wondering why you need the boards to be specifically mdf and why shrinkwraped? Water resistant?

Why not a cheap plywood?

With a cheap co2 laser around~140 watts and above you could be making your own in any configuration.

Well I have a source for shrink wrapping particle board end boards. I also have a source that will cut MDF into end boards. So far I have not pressed the issue to have the 2 sources line up to make shrink wrapped MDF.

Badger Plug makes the shrink wrapped end boards

I think you can find some-one to make MDF boards, the guy I have is local.

MDF is actually the volume material used in large roll packaging, my issue has always been that I am looking for small end boards for small rolls and the volume is not large.

I was thinking MDF might be cleaner than particle board - that was my driver. Particles particles everywhere
