Process

Specifications

When ordering, you should give your specification as follows, indicating whether its outside dimensions (OD) or inside dimensions (ID):
Length (L) x Breadth (B) x Height (H)
Length (L) = the longer dimension at the opening
Breadth (B) = the shorter dimension at the opening
Height (H) = the dimension from the top to the base.

You should also indicate the paper specs where they are known.

Standard Board Guide.

The following is just a guide to the most commonly used flutings. They provide different levels of strength which also depend on the board grade used in both the lining and fluting.

Single Wall Board (3PLY)

Board made from one layer of fluting between two liners. There are many different flutes depending on what you require.

  • E Flute - A fine flute used for corrugated 'cartons'. It gives excellent crush resistance.
  • B Flute - By far the most widely specified flute profile; difficult to crush, good compression strength and compactness which minimizes storage space.
  • C Flute - A larger flute than "B", offering greater compression strength, but it may be crushed more easily. It also takes up more storage space than "B" flute.

Double Wall Board

  • BC - A combination of two flute sizes, usually "B" and "C", specified when compression strength is more important.
  • BE - A combination of two flute sizes, usually "B" and "E", specified when compression strength, crash resistance and reduced carton weight is required.

A combination of two flute sizes, usually "B" and "E", specified when compression strength, crash resistance and reduced carton weight is required.

Packaging Design

Standard Carton Style Guide
The range of carton style is vast allowing you to have a carton produced that is fit for any purpose. Here below, we have given a few styles, however there are a greater range of options.

Slotted-type boxes (RSC)
Consist of basically one piece with a glued, stitched or taped manufacturers joint and top and bottom flaps. They are shipped flat, ready to use and require closing using the flaps provided.

Telescope-type
Boxes consist of more than one piece and are characterized by a lid and bottom telescoping over the body of the box.

Folder-type boxes and trays
Usually consist of only one piece of board, generally known as Die Cut Cases. The bottom of the box is hinged to form two or all side walls and the cover. Locking tabs, handles, display panels etc., can be incorporated in some designs. Trays can either be self locking or stitch type.
