Custom crating is... well... custom. That's why Styles are only the beginning of the design process. Add or remove cleats? Use a thicker plywood top? Insert an internal floater deck or foam cavity? Surface protection with vapor barrier? Modified joist assembly? YES! Crate Pro supports these design modifications, and many, many more! Actually, these features are so much a part of Crate Pro, they're not really modifiations - just options.
No matter where in the world they're made, most wooden transport containers are based on standards. But many of these 'spec' crates get modified, even if it's only by adding internal blocking or adjusting cleat orientation. We know your crating company is like no other. That's why Crate Pro is like no other.
BUT IT DOES DO MUCH MORE!
Here is a very small example of the hundreds of styles that Crate Pro designs. These images are included within Crate Pro to assist you and your staff in the selection, design, and manufacturing of the proper container.
Let's face it - If crating weren't custom then anybody could do it. No matter if you call them crates, cases, boxes, or whos-a-wach-its, making them is both an art and a science. Chances are that you make them because your customer's can't. And chances are that you make them different than anyone else in town. Maybe cheaper, maybe stronger, maybe faster, but your company is unique.
Crate Pro is unique too! The time it takes your shop to pack a thingy-doodle is different than anyone else in town. You don't need software that tells you how long it takes to drive 500 nails - you know that. Crate Pro simply takes that information you've entered then applies it over-and-over again. Crate Pro takes the times that you already know for each process, and applies them to everything you make. Large crates, small boxes, panel saw, beam saw, doesn't matter! Crate Pro adjusts for different sizes, quantities, and situations.
