Packaging Best Practices Presentation

  1. 1. Packing & PackagingGuidelines Prepared for:
  2. 2. Midland Container Background John Revitte – Account Manager Scott MacFarland – Packaging Designer Provide your corrugated cartons & packaging Out plant is located in Franksville Partners with Thermal Transfer for over 35 years
  3. 3. Challenges to Packaging Items with many different shapes • Long & skinny • Flat & Wide • Bulky • Multiple items with different shapes on a skid Heavy weight items with sharp edges Need to make it through UPS Freight or LTL shipment and arrive undamaged to customer
  4. 4. General Packaging Guidelines Box 101 – Tell you a little bit about boxes What type of box should be used for this product? What cushioning should be used? How to close the box securely? How to secure the box to the skid? Not to criticize…just help you get better
  5. 5. Box 101 – Common Box Styles RSC – Regular Slotted Container  Standard type of carton  for most items  Used for hardware boxes  FOL– Full Overlap Container   Stronger than RSC  Used for heavier items  Double bottom & top
  6. 6. Box 101 – Common Box Styles Telescope Tray Pack  Used for flat products  Easy to “top load”  Should be sealed with staples   Five Panel Folder   Used for long items  Easy to “top load”  Should be sealed with staples
  7. 7. Box 101 – Common Box Styles Inner Packing-Slit Score  Used to take up space inside a box, protect corners of square items   Can be assembled with staples or tape  Scored Rollup   Used to take up space inside a box  Can be assembled with staples or tape
  8. 8. Cushioning Interior Parts Products must be cushioned properly to protect from shock/vibration which can pass through the walls of the box Cushions product-to-product interaction Recommend a minimum of 1” of cushioning around product Cushioning to keep product no less than 1” from box walls
  9. 9. Cushioning Interior Parts Material Suggestions  Bubblewrap – Good for small, random shaped parts. Doesn’t work the best for sharp objects.  Corrugated Inserts/Rollups – Good for square rectangular product. Inexpensive but will not withstand repeated drops
  10. 10. Cushioning Interior Parts Material Suggestions  Air Pillows – Take up a lot of room for little cost and work well for round or curved shapes  Foam Corners – EPS or PE is common. Work well on square or rectangular items of medium to lighter weight.
  11. 11. Box Closure Stapling (Trays & Heavier Items)  Minimum should be 3 staples per flap (unless flap is too small)
  12. 12. Box Closure Taping (RSC & FOL style boxes)  Proper H taping method  <add picture>  Types of tape  Pressure sensitive plastic tape  Nylon reinforced filament tape (60lb recommended)
  13. 13. Palletizing the Box Select a proper sized pallet for the job Inspect pallet for broken boards and runners No more than 4 inches of exposed pallet deck (underhang) We recommend no more than 2 inches of overhang (unless the product is self supporting)
  14. 14. Strapping the Box to the Pallet Use V-Board or wood top boards to prevent straps from digging into the corrugated box Use strapping to secure heavy items to the skid WATCH STRAP TENSION – Not Too Tight Use stretch wrap to secure lighter items to skid & help to prevent moisture damage Use “No Stack” cones to help discourage double-stacking when necessary Use appropriate labels (This Side Up, etc.)
  15. 15. Case Study Examples No V Board or Wood Boards Straps too tight
  16. 16. Case Study Examples Properly labeled and marked Properly stacked corner to corner Good use of boards to protect box from straps
  17. 17. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Straps to tight Open Seam where box is pieced together
  18. 18. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Reasonably good job closing with tape Straps to tight Open Seam where box is pieced together Better if taped along entire length
  19. 19. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Straps to tight Box not sealed Open Seam where box is pieced together
  20. 20. Case Study Examples Good selection of pallet size to match the box Properly labeled Straps to tight Acceptable amount of crush Open Seam where without v-boards or top boards box is pieced together
  21. 21. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Watch strap crush Straps to tight Open Seam where box is pieced together Box / Pallet proper size to work together
  22. 22. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Good stapling job Straps to tight Proper Labeling Seam where Open box is pieced together
  23. 23. Case Study Examples Another example of excellent stapling & Properly labeled palletizing Straps to tight Open Seam where box is pieced together
  24. 24. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Straps to tight Straps tearing through Open Seam where box is pieced together Open corner
  25. 25. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Straps to tight Open corner Open Seam where box is pieced together Stretchwrap helps…
  26. 26. Case Study Examples Account for depth ofProperly labeled flaps when building frames inside Straps to tight Open Seam where Frame is too tall box is pieced and will cause flaps together to roll
  27. 27. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Straps to tight Open Seam where box is pieced together
  28. 28. Case Study Examples Properly labeled Straps to tight Open Seam where box is pieced together
  29. 29. Questions? Anything? Properly labeled Anything? Straps to tight We are here to provideOpen Seam where support if you think of box is pieced anything related to packaging, let your together supervisors or managers know and they can get us involved!
