PACKAGING DESIGN THAT MEETS OPERATIONAL DEMANDS
This method outlines standard processes for the development and documentation of federal packaging. Methods of preservation to protect material against environmentally induced corrosion and deterioration, physical and mechanical damage, and other forms of degradation during storage, multiple handling, and shipment of material in the Federal Transportation System. Below is a decision table for determining how to develop federal packaging requirements. The Federal Transportation System required the following items.
STEP I: FUNCTIONAL IDEAS
Packaging of an electronic system must consider protection from mechanical damage, cooling, radio frequency noise emission and electrostatic discharge. There are several factors that make crating and shipping semiconductor equipment especially challenging. Given the nature of the products, typically being shipped from a clean room environment, DESIGN AND ENGINEERING is required in order to maintain a product's integrity throughout its journey.
Factor Electronics such as tablets, computers, components and network chassis are fragile and must be protected against damage. Retail packaging is usually not enough to provide adequate protection during transit. Pack the box as tight as you can with bubble wrap, foam inserts, or tightly-wadded kraft paper. (Don't use polystyrene "packing peanuts" or other types of loose-fill packaging--they create static electricity and won't keep your device from sliding around.) Seal the box with packing tape.
STEP II: AESTHETIC IDEAS
Product boxes give you the freedom of designing them in any way you want. They can fully be customized on the inside and outside of the box. This gives your brand tons of creative freedom to express your story, make your products stand out, and attract more customers. Packaging directly affects brand and product perception. A good packaging design is a design that is appropriate for the company (communicating, product dentity), the product/product line (attractive) and the target customers. It's best to design packages that can live on with a secondary use.
Get the most performance out of paperboard by investing in structural design. Custom-fitting a carton to a product can reduce the amount of material while maintaining the same stacking strength. The compression performance of cartons and cases can also be important where the carton or case is required to provide some or all of the top-load strength (if the product itself is limited in how much load it can carry). A strategic approach to packaging design and development to meet customer needs, quality expectations, competitive price, reduction of product design cycle time, and minimize disuptive design changes can be effectively produced with a well planned process. If applicable, design in saving.
STEP III: PRODUCT REDESIGN
When we are looking to package a product, we need to decide which type of material we will package our products in. But what material should we choose? Plastic, bio-plastics, metal, cardboard, boxes, paperboard, shrink film, foil, clamshells, or something else? In order to do this, we need to understand which materials are appropriate for our applications. Below is a list of different types of packaging materials. Each material will be explored in regard to what they are made out of.
Foam Shipping Products is manufactured in buns (large blocks) or planks and may have to be cut or skived (trimmed or split to exact thicknesses) into sheets before it can be worked with. A foam packaging product has to then be custom cut and manufactured into smaller parts and often requires some assembly. There are many different fabrication technologies available depending on the shape, quantity, and quality that is required for the application, need for precision, and budget. The correct foam must support the mass load and still cushion sensitive equipment from impact forces.
