Green packaging of the hottest household appliance

  • Detail

Household appliance packaging greening

there are various forms, and the effect is getting better and better

in the 21st century, advocating green, environmental protection will become the most basic requirement for household appliance products to be based on the market. Household appliance products themselves are the same, and household appliance packaging is no exception. Green packaging conforms to the world trend of green consumption and is conducive to breaking through the international green barriers. At the same time, it will play a positive role in reducing the damage rate of commodities in circulation and improving the quality of packaged products. It will face good development opportunities and huge market space

the development momentum of the electronic industry and the problems existing in its packaging in recent years, the state has taken the electronic information industry as the pillar and leading industry in China. In 2002, the export of China's electronic information industry earned US $60billion in foreign exchange. It is estimated that the export volume will reach US $100billion by 2005, which is double that of 2000. For its export products, such as those whose packages are not filled in and the parameter statements are not printed, the demand for cushioning pads and pallets is amazing. With the development of market economy, foreign trade and the continuous improvement of consumers' awareness of environmental protection, paper pallets and packaging boxes are greatly favored, and honeycomb paper pallets, honeycomb cartons, honeycomb paperboards and other packaging materials and packaging products are in full bloom

after joining the WTO, China's economy began to face the world market directly, and the globalization of economy has brought the internationalization of packaging. At present, non-tariff barriers in international trade are very prominent restrictive measures on China's export products. On February 13, 2004, the European Union announced two decrees, the directive on scrapped electronic and electrical equipment and the directive on the prohibition of the use of certain hazardous substances in electronic and electrical equipment, which put forward higher environmental protection requirements for the manufacture of electronic and electrical products. It will speed up the environmental protection process of the global electronic industry, and is undoubtedly a strong booster for China's household appliances and packaging to enter the green environmental protection track. According to insiders, these two EU directives will affect the export volume of about US $27billion of more than 2000 domestic enterprises, and the impact on the home appliance industry will be revolutionary. In the 21st century, which advocates green, environmental protection will become the most basic requirement for household appliances to be based on the market. Household appliances themselves are like this, and household appliance packaging is no exception. Green packaging conforms to the world trend of green consumption and is conducive to breaking through the international green barriers. At the same time, it will play a positive role in reducing the damage rate of commodities in circulation and improving the quality of packaged products. It will face good development opportunities and huge market space

according to statistics, nearly US $24billion of export commodities in China are directly or indirectly affected because they fail to meet the packaging requirements of foreign developed countries. A market player is a land of iron and steel. Only when he knows himself and the enemy can he be invincible

at present, the main problems existing in the outer packaging of products in China are: (1) the physical properties such as strength and pressure resistance of some Chinese cartons fail to meet the relevant standard requirements, and deformation and damage often occur after long-distance transportation, handling and unloading; (2) The size design is not reasonable. The size design of Chinese product packaging should try to match the size of pallets, containers and counters in the European Union. For example, the current European standard pallet size is (mm); (3) The adhesive strength of corrugated box base paper is not enough (especially after encountering water), and at the same time, corresponding waterproof measures are rarely taken outside the corrugated box, resulting in poor moisture-proof performance of the box

lightweight base paper will be popular in electronic product packaging

although the industry has not yet reached a consensus on the standard of lightweight base paper, based on the triple consideration of quality, cost and environmental protection, many domestic household appliance and electronic enterprises have expressed great concern about low gram weight and high-strength base paper. Because they are optimistic about the huge market of domestic low gram weight and high-strength corrugated base paper, at present, Zhenglong, yongfengyu in Taiwan, Jinguang in Indonesia Hong Kong's Liwen, nine dragons and other enterprises have set off a new round of investment boom in the mainland of China. Lightweight base paper is expected to become another milestone in the development of electronic information product packaging

on the one hand, household appliances have high requirements for the compressive strength of cartons, on the other hand, product prices have fallen again and again. Reducing packaging costs has become a very important part of reducing the total cost. The use of low gram weight, high-strength base paper can not only ensure the compressive strength of the carton, but also reduce the amount of base paper, improve the output rate of unit paper, and reduce the cost of the carton, so it is particularly favored by users of household appliance enterprises. The practical experience of user enterprises such as Sichuan Changhong, TCL computer, Qingdao Hisense, Guangdong Kelon and Suzhou Samsung shows that after the application of low gram weight and high-strength base paper, the packaging cost can be effectively reduced by 5% - 15% by changing the box type design from five layer box to three-layer box. Save paper consumption and storage space. Considering that the market price of face paper and lining paper is significantly higher than that of core paper and corrugated paper, the gram weight of face paper and lining paper should be appropriately reduced and the gram weight of core paper and corrugated paper should be increased, so as to achieve the purpose of reducing the cost of paperboard and improving the bursting resistance of paperboard and other performance indicators. For carton enterprises making household appliance packaging, on the basis of ensuring the quality of cartons, try to reduce the weight of base paper, which can not only win user orders, but also reduce product costs

micro corrugated packaging has many advantages

in the United States, the demand for micro corrugated packaging for digital and small household appliances is growing at a rate of 2% per year; In Europe, the consumption of micro corrugated packaging was estimated to account for 12% of the total packaging in 2004. According to statistics, the current output of micro corrugated board in the world market accounts for 8% of the total output of corrugated board. It is expected that it will continue to grow in the next five years, with an annual growth rate of about 20%. In terms of ridge type, it is developing towards g-ridge and n-ridge. In China, digital small household appliances of enterprises such as BenQ, Motorola, Haier, Philips, Sony and so on are all using micro corrugated packaging

due to the advantages of high compressive strength and exquisite printing, micro corrugated packaging has been recognized by users. At present, domestic enterprises apply e-corrugated more. For example, large enterprises such as Siemens have put forward the requirement of using smaller corrugated such as g-corrugated

1. Micro corrugated packaging saves 20% of the cost: compared with solid cardboard, low gram weight, high-strength micro corrugated cartons have better cost performance, so the packaging cost is more economical and reasonable. Henan Xinda new materials Co., Ltd., a listed company under China Pingmei Shenma energy and Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Pingmei Shenma), has issued two announcements in succession: 1. It is a new project with an annual output of 6million kilometers of electroplating diamond line; 2 in order to invest in the use conditions of the project of carbon graphite cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries with an annual output of 10000 tons, micro corrugated packaging is in line with the current development trend of lightweight packaging due to its low gram weight

2. Compression resistance and bursting resistance are more prominent: while reducing costs, micro corrugated packaging also ensures the superior performance of cartons in other aspects. Compared with large corrugated packaging such as B-shaped corrugated packaging, micro corrugated packaging has lower corrugated height, more corrugated number per unit area, denser corrugated types and stronger structure. Therefore, when using the same base paper and the same pressure, it has more obvious advantages in terms of pressure bearing strength and buffer capacity against parallel pressure. For example, the rupture strength of E-shaped corrugated packaging box can reach 11kg/cm2. In the selection of base paper, grey white board with good stiffness and burst resistance is used as the surface paper of micro corrugated packaging box. This 350 gram base paper makes the protective performance of the carton more prominent and effectively ensures the quality of products during transportation

3. Ink and UV varnish ensure exquisite printing: micro corrugated packaging has a good pressure bearing degree, so it has a strong color expressiveness, coupled with the high stability of gray background whiteboard, so it can well ensure the printing adaptability. It is printed in four or five colors, with exquisite patterns, bright colors and strong visual effects. In order to ensure the printing quality, water-based ink with good wear-resistant effect is generally selected and coated with UV varnish to protect the printing

green channel to replace EPS foamed plastic according to relevant data, since the second half of the previous year, the brand air conditioners of well-known enterprises at home and abroad, such as Kelon, Changhong, Haier, Hisense, Aucma, Gree, Midea, have also successively adopted honeycomb paperboard materials to replace EPS foamed plastic gaskets and wooden pallets, in line with the international market. The use of honeycomb paperboard material not only reduces the packaging cost (the packaging cost of each cabinet air conditioner is reduced by about 15 - 20 yuan), but also eliminates white pollution and opens up a smooth green channel for the export of foreign trade enterprises

research new packaging design to reduce costs

there has been a way since ancient Huashan. Is it true that the only way to control the cost of cartons is to control the cost of base paper? The answer is No. In the face of the rising price of base paper, controlling the cost of base paper is only one of the solutions, not the only solution. Provide customers with more design services, design packaging scientifically and reasonably, and attract more users on the one hand and reduce the cost of cartons on the other hand by changing the box type design

Skyworth Group has reduced its packaging cost by 20% through the redesign of packaging and the R & D and use of new materials and the combination of self-developed corrugated cardboard and honeycomb cardboard. TCL has begun to improve the design of cartons, and the cost has been reduced by about 10% after improving the corrugated shape, gram weight, box shape and backing materials of paper. The new packaging design developed by Shenzhen Huali Packaging Co., Ltd. is an effective way to reduce product costs. After helping TCL improve the carton design, they successfully reduced the consumption of raw materials, meeting the price reduction requirements of customers and ensuring the profits of the enterprise. Now this improvement is still in progress

the cooperation with TCL made them taste the sweetness of packaging design and see a bright line in the fierce price competition. To this end, they are also preparing to spend millions of yuan to establish a new design and development center to reduce costs by constantly developing new packaging designs

other measures to improve technical quality:

1 Easy to open packaging can be adopted for domestic and foreign sales, the structural design and cost design of cartons can be optimized, and the proportion of base paper and core paper can be reasonably selected, so as to be in line with the development trend of international packaging

2. The strength of the carton is the life of the carton, the corrugating roller is the heart of the corrugating machine, and the paste and latex are the blood of the corrugating machine. For this reason, the corrugated rod and paste automatic control system with cobalt based tungsten carbide coating can reduce the waste paperboard, reduce the defective rate of products, control the process quality, improve the speed, prevent the deformation and bending of paperboard, reduce the amount of starch, improve the results that can be obtained by adopting aluminum based composite materials, improve the paper utilization rate, reduce the corrugated rate, and thus reduce the cost of cartons

3. Strengthen the packaging function of cartons, and take good waterproof effect, crack resistance effect, cardboard bonding effect, corrugated eating paste line, etc. as measures to improve the efficiency of corrugated machine and cardboard quality

4. As the cartons are damp during handling, the compressive strength of the cartons decreases. For domestic carton enterprises, it is very important to solve the moisture-proof problem of cartons. The countermeasures are: using high-performance paper base paper; Apply a waterproof coating compound microporous wax on the surface of the paperboard that has no impact on the product; Polish or stick plastic/film on the surface of the carton
