Choosing good packaging can save manufacturers of equipment, metals, machinery, electronics, parts, optics, and other items time, space, labor expense, reworks, waste, and money. And it can increase quality and reliability. Good packaging can be the difference between disposing of your entire product before the end of its expected life, or installing a few well protected replacement parts and enjoying the use of your product for its full life. Properly packaged small parts or large machinery can sit on shelf or even in outdoor storage for months or years until needed. If I'm being honest (to quote Simon Cowell) isn't it really all about money?
When choosing packaging materials to wrap industrial items, a manufacturer must decide what the chosen packaging material does for them. Treat this packing materials choice like any other purchase for the business or home - what benefits will you receive from the product and will it provide the value you anticipate.
