Packaging concept and furniture packaging

â—† The difference between packaging and bale.

(1) Packing a simple packing article.

(2) Packin: Wraps the item further to give the product attribute that can be sold.

â—† Different definitions of packaging in countries around the world.

United States: Packaging is the use of appropriate materials, containers, and techniques to enable it to safely reach its destination - at any stage of the product delivery process, no matter what external influences are encountered, it can protect its contents. Does not affect the value of the product.

Japanese Industrial Standards [JISZ1010(1951)] Packaging refers to the state in which, when shipping and storing articles, they are wrapped in appropriate materials, containers, and packaging techniques in order to protect their value and their original state.

China: Packaging is the general name for the use of containers, materials, and aids in order to protect products during circulation, facilitate storage and transportation, and promote sales.

According to the above concept, the main purpose of packaging is to protect the product and maintain its value. It involves the selection of packaging materials, packaging methods, protective measures, and packaging and decoration. Packaging is an independent industrial system. Furniture packaging is not Furniture Packing but Furniture Packaging. Furniture wrapped furniture should have good sales performance. Furniture packaging needs to consider all aspects of Packaging.

â—† The definition of furniture packaging design

The design of furniture packaging is based on its purpose and content requirements, and with reference to people's understanding of packaging, it can be defined as: the use of appropriate packaging materials and packaging technology; the application of design laws and aesthetic principles; and the provision of containers, styling and packaging for furniture products. Creative ideas, and use the drawings or models to express the whole process. Furniture packaging design and furniture product design is a dialectical relationship. It provides moderate protection for furniture products in the production, storage, transportation and sales process and reflects the product personality, corporate culture of the production company and design culture. Furniture packaging design participates in the whole process of design, specifications, materials, numbering, structure, and crafts of furniture products.

The role of furniture packaging

The role of furniture packaging has the following aspects: (1) Provide appropriate protection for furniture products. (2) Branding services for the design, production and sales of furniture products. (3) Suitable information resources for furniture companies to deploy information technology, product generalization, production and sales of inventory information society services. (4) Serve consumers of furniture products.

â—†Providing moderate protection for furniture products is the main function of furniture packaging.

Furniture production requires a long time and space transformation from production to use. All this process includes the steps of storage, transportation, sales and self-assembly of furniture products. The value of furniture products can only be avoided under good packaging design to avoid adverse effects caused by changes in humidity, temperature, mechanical impact, and biological factors. When the furniture reaches the final stage of the consumer, the shape, appearance and structure of the furniture product have not been cracked, swollen, warped, moldy, detached from the paint film, cracked marble or glass, and the value of the furniture has finally come to an end. reflect.

â—† The branding service for the design, production and sales of furniture products is an important function of furniture packaging.

For export-oriented furniture manufacturers who are OEMs, overseas companies will place very high demands on packaging. Packaging design, exterior decoration and design are sometimes provided by them; this is actually a strict restriction for the brand design, production and sales of the domestic furniture industry. China is a big country for the production and sale of furniture. With good furniture packaging, the development of the Chinese furniture industry will have more room.

As the saying goes: “Good horses are equipped with good saddles”, but many furniture companies consider the particularity of furniture products. Before consumers use them, the sellers have already unpacked the outer layers of packaging, so they often overlook the importance of packaging. Now we have noticed that DIY furniture, KD furniture and so on need excellent furniture packaging; furniture companies' corporate culture, service quality, product quality and other embodiments also rely on furniture packaging. The packaging design of the furniture is not only the design and beautification of the packaging box, it also includes the design of the enterprise, the product logo and the technical treatment of the marking, the product specification, after-sales service, and instructions for use. In short, furniture packaging provides a broad stage for the furniture manufacturer's brand management. The cost of furniture packaging can be calculated as production cost. If the first-class furniture is equipped with a three-stream packaging, it can only sell the second-rate price. This product is also difficult to give the user confidence.

â—† It is a special function of furniture packaging for furniture companies to adapt to the informationization of resource allocation, product generalization, production and sales and zero inventory.

The unified specification of the packaging box for furniture includes the design of surface decoration and sealing tape.

1. Sealing tape provides a good data entry for the informationization of furniture manufacturers' deployment of resources. Sealing tape paper adopts bar code processing technology; after packaging and storage, the product name, model number, specifications, parts and components, color, material, production cost, sales purpose, and date of manufacture, products such as King Size/Queen size can all be entered in the same way. The EXCEL database is linked with barcodes to meet the needs of the company's overall operations, market research, annual summary, and container packing calculations.

2. Uniform specifications of the outer box can reduce the inventory of cartons. Different furniture products can use the same specification of the outer box. Such as: different wrought iron soft chairs or solid wood dining chair products (DIY structure), parts of different shapes, but the packaging box size can be considered consistent; many current furniture manufacturers directly in the outer box printing product modeling, which limits the packaging The general purpose of the carton.

3. For similar bed nets, wrought iron beds and other parts, you can consider the general use of packaging. Such as: bed nets and steel pipe bed mother and other common parts according to specifications alone use the outer box, different suite furniture other parts to give different product numbers; need product support, suites of other parts and common parts (wrapped) with the same bar code Face storage.

The technical treatment of the above-mentioned furniture packaging reduces the time for capital turnover and enables the company's production to meet the requirements of an information society.

â—† Serving consumers of furniture products is the ultimate goal of furniture packaging.

When people talk about furniture design, their favorite slogans are "humanism" and "green design." Furniture products, especially DIY furniture and KD furniture, must have a good furniture package to truly serve consumers. An excellent furniture package includes the following aspects that are beneficial to consumers: (1) The hardware accessories are prominent and the accessories should not be less. (2) The assembly drawing is clear and standardized, and the assembly steps are simple and easy to understand. (3) The parts are taken in the order of assembly, easy to identify, (4) there are detailed precautions for use, there are materials, processes, structures, design and other instructions in English and Chinese. (5) There is a clear description of after-sales service content and consumer rights.

Content of furniture packaging design

The furniture packaging design contains the following contents: 1. Select the appropriate parts assembly process, draw assembly diagrams. 2. Select the appropriate parts to match, 3. Determine the location and fixed form of the various components in the same box. 4. Select suitable packaging materials, determine the specifications for the use of packaging materials, and develop a list of packaging materials. 5. Sketch the product assembly and disassembly, and mark the parts. 6. Product specification production. 7. Sketch the stacking code. 8. Bar code information preparation. 9. Outer box shape design, design, sign design. 10. Chinese and English translations.

â—† Consider suitable parts assembly process.

If a nail gun is used to force the nail process, the mechanical collision between the glass panel and the nail gun is difficult to avoid, and the glass will take up or generate internal stress; if an appropriate assembly process is used, adverse effects can be avoided. Of course, it would be better if we could deal with the revision of the structure and dimensions in the design of furniture products.

â—† suitable parts with

Components should follow the following principles: (1) The principle of component correlation, only the components are relevant to facilitate customer use. For example, parts of the front panel of the suite share a single box. (If you put a component in the head screen with a makeup stool, it is not suitable for packaging.) (2) Use the principle of space minimization. For manufacturers or sellers who pay a high price on the shore, it is their eternal pursuit to use the products with the highest transportation costs to be shipped. In the process of molding packaging, the size of the space consumed by the packaging must be repeatedly compared and the minimum packaging state must be selected. For DIY furniture and KD furniture, the packaging design must also require the product design to provide the best disassembly and disassembly dimensions.

â—† Determine the proper location and fixed form of each component in the packing box.

The determination of the position and fixed form of each component in the packing box should be signed in the following aspects: (1) The principle of symmetry. The principle of symmetry takes into account the various unknowable states of the furniture during transportation, storage and sales, and ensures the stability of furniture products in the packaging box. At the same time provide convenience for the use of the room and product awareness. (2) The principle of stability. Determine the position of the parts in the packing box to ensure that they will not move in the process of circulation and cause mechanical collisions. (3) The fixed structure does not damage the aesthetic value of the product. Fixing bandages, nails from plastic cords, or clear plastics should have no adverse effect on the film and structure. In considering the above principles, computer simulation and physical testing techniques can be used.

â—† Select suitable packaging materials, determine the specifications for the use of packaging materials, and develop a list of packaging materials.

This involves costs, packaging quality and other factors. The following principles should be considered when selecting packaging materials, packaging forms, and packaging specifications: (1) Dialectical design principles; Excessive packaging materials, excessive packaging will cause waste of resources, increase the packaging volume and the bulk density ratio, and also affect the packaging The aesthetics; but packaging is not in place, it will produce packaging accidents, affect product quality. Therefore, we must dialectize ideas and design them repeatedly. (2) Green design principles; For the selection of packaging materials, consideration should be given to the popular green design requirements. Packaging materials can be used as sizing materials. (3) The principle of economic rationality. This includes the cost considerations for the selection, production and use of packaging materials. Although packaging costs are included in production costs, consumers are also considered to have the greatest possible economic rationalization before they can increase the competitiveness of their products. (4) The packaging of a single iron flower leg can use 1MM pearl cotton on the material of the protective sleeve, and can also use 3MM pearl cotton, consider the actual needs of the protective film, consider the length of the transportation process, and do the best screening; The length of the protective cover should also be rationally designed. In addition to considering general use, the protective cover should be quantitatively and uniformly produced. Its design and production should be limited by drawings; the specific use of various packaging materials must also consider economic factors. , (5) Can compare the difference in cost loss of the use of pearl cotton.

â—†Bar code information preparation

After each set of bar code content size, with the number of production batches, the entire number of product packaging boxes and other parameters processed by Excel into a database form. Data link bar code and database content.

In short, furniture packaging has its uniqueness and importance. The furniture packaging design should be integrated with the furniture product design. Based on the assurance of the product's shape and quality, considering the packaging factors, the furniture structure and overall dimensions should be adjusted to make the KD technology more perfect. Raising the emphasis on furniture packaging design is conducive to the overall healthy development of China's furniture industry
