1. Carton Packaging World

Many people mistaked that carton packaging is the combination of the box template structural design and graphic design. In fact, the carton packaging is far more than that. In this chapter we will explain by two small examples : the carton packaging is a macrocosm, this industry is promising if you get involved.

2.1 The definition of tubes

It originally refers to the smallest box lid area amang, such as toothpaste boxes, such as toothpaste box.

Now, it is generally defined from the molding characteristics: it refers to the carton box that need both the lid and bottom closure panel fixed or sealed during the molding process.

lock bottom

From the automatic lock bottom structure, we can see both the flap and width angle of the box are 45 , it is to avoid overlapp when folding. Part A is the locking tab which is located the intersection of 1/2 length and 1/2 width of the box, it is to enhance the lock strength.

The shade area is the glued part, it is folded on the opposite direction. The larger size the glued part, the more firmly. The 2 slash on Part B is to facilitate waste remove from the slash after carton box diecutting. The 3mm width in part C is to prevent the carton rupture after multilayer paper overlapped.

7Whether the carton box need to prevent unexpected opening double-glued end seals:The glued operation can prevent the folding carton with unexpected open, such as toothpaste box. 8Which loading way the folding carton applied? Vertical loadingCommonly loading way, it is easy for mechanized production; such as grain and powder. Horizontal loadingThe basic design is the same with vertical loading, only changes the open direction. Automation equipment is more complex. Top loadingSome products require bigger diameter loading. This type of folding carton is often designed with KDF( knocked-down-flat) or flat sheets delivered. Dimensionally unstable products (such as clothing) tend to use the top loading design, as well as toys.

As the name suggested, the wall structure of the tray has doubled, it is easy of production, various parts folded completely, normally can be made of top and base box.

Since the glued part need to be folded to form the double side wall, its maximum value can not exceed the depth of the box subtracting the thickness of the paper.

The foot lock plays both the foot and lock rule of the box. The size of the male lock is smaller than the size of the female lock in the box lock structure, the male lock is drawn to the inside with 15 angle, and the female lock is 15 angle to the outside. The four fixed flaps folded can not affect the lock, it is the relationship between C and C-2B in the tray structure.

3.2 The influence of the two sides of the paper on structure design No matter ordinary cardboard or corrugated board has two sides, ordinary cardboard has a surface layer and a bottom layer, corrugated cardboard has out layer paper and inner layer paper. It influences the molding when folding, which need to be taken into account in the structure design.

3.4 The influence of the two sides of the paper on structure design

There're two concerns: 1. the length of the cardboard is 40 mm before folding, after folding the inner size isn't 40/2=20mm,it is 19mm because of the caliper. 2. The first statement is not entirely accurate,because of the two sides of the paper, when folding on the middle, the internal loss is different with different specifications of the cardboards, it need to be taken into account.

3.6 The Offset Because of the dust flap under the cover, to be strictly the panel connect with the cover should add a caliper, else the cover will be hindered by the dust flap when folding. The additional caliper is offset.

3.7 The texture direction


During the folding carton manufacturing process, the creasing line can effectively control the cardboard deformation, its role can not be ignored.As the fiber orientation, so that the cardboard folding onthe creasing line, the force on the transverse indentation line (the line parallel to the creasing line) is bigger than the longitudinal creasing line (the line parallel to longitudinal creasing line), so the bounce of transverse creasing line is bigger, thus increasing tension of the cardboard surface and enhance the strength of the carton. As the fiber alignment, and the stiffness and binding force for the same kind of cardboard longitudinal fiber were greater than the transverse, which leads to the longitudinal stiffness greater than the transverse board; in addition, because most of the carton stacking flat folded for transportation and storage, so the carton need resistance to repeated folding to avoid the creasing line crack which might affect the appearance and strength of carton. Thus when design the texture direction of the folding cartion, it needs to consider the different of vertically and horizontally physical properties of the cardboard and the creasing line position.

characteristics of folding carton

3.8 The texture direction design of Tubes

Generally, the longitudinal texture should be vertical with the main creasing line

(longer creasing line). Advantages


It makes the 4 surfaces of the box body smooth, avoid ballooning phenomenon. It is helpful to high speed gluer machine. The creasing line is not easy to burst and break(especially on thick paper ). When the carton size is smaller and

accuracy requirement is not too high, it


could apply mixed step and repeat ignore the texuture direction, thereby saving cost.

The

characteristics of folding carton

3.9 The texture direction design of Tubes with curved surface

The bending resistance of the sheet transverse(parallel to the texture direction) is smaller than longitudinal,which means the cardboard transverse bending easier, with the curved surface, the texture direction of the folding carton should be perpendicular to the curved creasing line. We can clearly the horizontal of box a is easy to bend so that the box body is formed into a very smooth arch.While box b on the contrary, because the creasing line design of paperboard is unreasonable caused the box body distortion.

The

characteristics of folding carton

3.10 The texture direction design of Trays

The length direction of the tray folding carton should be perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the cardboard.In this case it provides higher stiffness in a short span, facilitates the cartons strong and straight, and the transverse creasing line on the length direction gives the carton more strength.

The

characteristics of folding carton

3.11 The texture direction design of regular polygon trays

The texture direction design of the regular polygon tray, one plan is the longitudinal cardboard parallel to one of the box bottom corner angle bisector, another is longitudinal cardboard vertical to one of the box bottom corner angle bisector.Both two kinds of texture design have deficiencies, both affected the carton folding. The hexagonal box also has the problem. With the increase of the number of polygon box bottom, gradually tend to circle,the circle has no direction, so the more sides the polygon tray has, the smaller difference of the two kinds of plans, but the best choice is texture direction design which the board longitudinal vertical to the bisector lines of the bottom angle.

The

characteristics of folding carton

3.12 The texture direction design

For irregular folding cartons, the texture direction design should obey the basic cardboard texture direction design rules, but the irregular box has uncertainty, we suggest make samples to test first then choose which one texture direction design is more reasonable.

Mainly because of the mechanical and physical properties, the folding carton structure exist many mathematical relationships.

Mathematics

in the folding carton structure design

4.1 How to decide the inner size of the carton box

We often see some carton packaging rupture, deformation during transportation,this kind of circumstance except the paper strength is not enough, collision, one big issue is packaging size relatively big than the product. Generally, the length and width of the inner size of the carton box should be one caliper larger than the product, the depth should be 2 times caliper larger than the product.

For example, if the product size is 10*10*15 cm, caliper is 1mm, the inner size of the carton box should be 10.1*10.1*15.2cm.

The dust flap size should be smaller than the width of the box; 6. The outter layer sealing face size less or equal to the width of the box; 7. The right side face size is slightly less than the width of the box 0.8mm; even for heavy cartons, should reduce the cardboard caliper because the glue flap and right side face are jointed together, there will be one more caliper on the right side face. 62 / 93
