Plugbox

Storage for Earplugs

uvex
Originated in employment at UVEX Arbeitsschutz GmbH

The aim of the redevelopment was to develop a storage box with a belt clip for earplugs. Production costs should be reduced compared to the previous product by almost 50%.
In addition, the user-friendliness has been enhanced. Caused by the oblique opening the removal of the plugs is simplified.

Construction & release properties

Due to the construction inter alia with film hinges, the box can be produced by an uncomplex injection mold with a simple parting line - no sliders are needed anymore. Thus, the tool costs are reduced as well as the service life is prolonged.
A mold insert on the lid-top enables to distribute the plug box as an OEM product.
