8 |Transportation (packaging design)
Our product packaging is designed to fulfill various distribution challenges around the world. Using past accumulated lessons learned we focus on reducing and recycling materials to support environmental initiatives.
Packaging design starts immediately following product specification approval.
Prototype packaging is used with an actual product and verified through drop, vibration, and compression testing. The packaging design is not just designed for strength integrity, but includes crushable zones to absorb potential impact on the products while in transit. Furthermore, workability during the unpacking stage at the final destination is required. 2D/3D simulations are repeated on a trial and error basis. Unpacking ease and speed at the installation site is also considered.
Packaging design personnel make customer visits to confirm the physical constraints for the installation at the customer’s facility by the supplier with the actual procedures employed. The onsite unpacking procedure is compared to the unpacking procedure developed by packaging design personnel and provides valuable and useful information for further improvements. Additionally, packaging design personnel visit recycling plants to see how the used packaging materials are processed allowing us to make use of the information for the next packaging design.
