Getting a good education is a major part of success in the field of packaging. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, it is important to understand how the industry works and what are the most important aspects of packaging.
Using an air permeability test kit, we performed a five-fold cross-comparison of two cushioning materials. Amongst the two, we dubbed the ABS 10S the punch bowl, er, pun. The aforementioned material did a boffo job in testing the same as it did in the lab. The same is true of the lesser-known AKE. The following is a summary of the findings.
The aforementioned material and the aforementioned material were put to the test with respect to permeability and porosity and were compared on a gram-per-milliliter basis. The results were tabulated for comparative analysis to determine which was the true champion. The results were presented in a series of colored presentations to selected stakeholders. It is not surprising that the results of the aforementioned test were lauded as the gold standard.
Box Compression Test BCT
Among all the methods of testing corrugated board, the box compression test (BCT) is the most common one. This test measures the strength of a corrugated board under a defined compression force. The testing apparatus loads the box until it is unable to withstand the applied pressure. The test can be performed on either filled or empty boxes.
To conduct a BCT, a box sample is placed between rigid steel plates. The upper plate is pressed onto the box while the lower plate is twisted statically. The test force is calculated and applied before the carton is deformed. The box compresses and breaks when the pressure reaches a certain level.
Box compression test results are based on a total of six specimens. The samples are a combination of three different types of corrugated boards. They are B380, B370 and B380-C.
Using climate-neutral packaging is a great way to offset your carbon emissions. It also helps you increase your company’s bottom line.
There are many ways to calculate your company’s carbon footprint. You can use a basic calculator online or contact a packaging consultant to help you calculate your emissions.
Carbon is a key element in plastics, fuels, and other forms of packaging. It is also one of the largest contributors to global warming. When you use recycled plastic, you reduce your carbon footprint. You also save money on transportation costs.
You can find a wide variety of nationally recognized carbon offset projects. These projects remove CO2 from the air, and they also benefit local communities. They can provide job opportunities, biodiversity benefits, and food security.
Many companies have started introducing carbon labels on their packaging. These labels give consumers a clear view of the carbon footprint of the product they are buying. It also shows the company that it is certified and has committed to sustainability.
Computer-Aided Design CAD
CAD (computer-aided design) is a design process that creates design simulations of real-world goods. It also optimizes the design before it is actually produced. It is used by a variety of engineers and designers, including those in the design and manufacturing industries. It is also a popular tool for creating two-dimensional and three-dimensional drawings.
When a design is produced in a CAD program, the program will create a graphical user interface that displays the geometric shapes of the design. The user can then provide inputs to the program to customize it. This helps to improve the quality and productivity of the design.
CAD systems have revolutionized the engineering and design industries. They help to make the design process faster, easier, and more accurate. They also allow designers and engineers to create and reuse designs. This helps to cut down on time spent on a product’s development and testing.
Whether you are a start-up company looking to launch your product on a budget or a larger company that is looking to make a more impactful impact on your customer, digital printing in packaging is a key tool. Digital printing in packaging delivers fast turnarounds, lower costs, personalized displays, and high-quality packaging.
Unlike offset printing, digital printing in packaging uses a contactless process to print a full-color image without the need for additional print media. It also reduces waste and allows companies to respond faster to customer demand.
In order to be effective, digital printing in packaging must be incorporated into the product design. It will require a change to the company’s operations and a commitment from top management.
While large CPGs are not quick to adopt digital printing, suppliers are leveraging the technology to find success with smaller brands. They are also working on solutions for the challenges involved in digital printing.
