1. The performance of the product itself
The performance of the product itself mainly includes the product’s appearance, physical state, strength, structure, weight, value, danger, etc. This is the first issue that should be considered when packaging.
① Product appearance. There are mainly square, cylindrical, polygonal, special-shaped, etc. The packaging should be designed according to the appearance characteristics of the product, and the packaging should be small in size, well fixed, stable in storage, and meet standardization requirements.
②The physical state of the product. There are mainly solid, liquid, gaseous, mixed, etc. The packaging containers are also different for different physical states.
③Product strength. For products with low strength and susceptibility to damage, the protective performance of the package should be fully considered, and there should be a clear mark on the outside of the package.
④ Product structure. Different products often have different structures, some are not pressure resistant, and some are afraid of impact. Only by fully understanding the structure of the product can we properly package different products.
⑤ Product weight. For heavy products, pay special attention to the strength of the packaging to ensure that they are not damaged in circulation.
⑥ Product value. Different products have great differences in value, and the highest value should be considered.
⑦The product is dangerous. For flammable, explosive, toxic and other dangerous products, to ensure safety, there should be precautions and specific marks on the outside of the package.
2. Differences in product packaging methods
The choice of packaging methods is very important for product protection. Only by fully understanding product performance and circulation conditions, formulating several plans, and conducting economic evaluations can a suitable packaging method be found. The outer packaging of the product is reflected in two aspects:
①Choose the packaging method. According to the requirements of product protection strength, easy to use, convenient for mechanical loading and unloading and transportation, choose the appropriate packaging technology and packaging method.
②Choose packaging materials. Choose suitable packaging materials to make packaging containers according to product performance, and choose appropriate accessory packaging materials to package products.
