“Packaging” has been requiring various functions, such as protectability, distributability, and graphical design for purchasing promotion refer as Table1.
Here, protectability for products inside is the most important function of packaging and will mention in this section.
|Table1 Packaging Function|
|Protectivity||Protective design toward distribution hazard|
|Distributionablity||Easy handling & storage|
|Graphical design||Graphical design for good look, inside product’s information|
|Universal design||Easy operation & Safety|
|Cost & Environment||3 R, minimized packaging materials/td>|
All packaging products encounter various hazards in their distribution as Table2. These hazards occurs damage to some products. To prevent these damage, protective package has been needed. Evaluation testing like drop test, vibration test and compression test, have been conducting for the mechanical damage of each distribution hazard, Table3.
|Table 2 Kind of Distribution Hazard|
|Mechanical||Vibration, Shock, Compression|
|Criminate||Temperature, Humidity, Atmosphere, Sunlight, etc|
|Biological||mold, vermin, etc.|
|Table 3 Distribution mode, Hazard and Required Test|
|Static Stress||Storage||Stacking||Compression Test|
Purpose of the protective package is to protect from actual distribution hazards. It is difficult to cope with both cost and environmental effectivity. Here, we would like to introduce you the techniques for appropriate design.
