Cutting a box in Industry
DIE CUTTERS are normally used to manufacture card packaging. However, they can also be used to manufacture shapes / nets / developments from stronger materials. These include materials normally used for models. The manufacturing techniques for the model aeroplane is exactly the same whether it is made from balsa wood or polystyrene (Depron or Zepron)
 
Card is popular packaging material because it is cheap and it can be recycled. Also, colour and images can be applied using a number of printing techniques. Normally the card is lacquered to give the box a gloss / satin finish.
 
 
 
 
Symbols sometimes used on a box:
 
 
 

This symbol reminds those handling the package to keep out of the rain and not to store it in damp conditions. it is normally found on card based packages which would be damaged if placed in contact with water.

 

The broken wine glass suggests that the product inside the packaging could be easily damaged if dropped or handled without care and attention. The contents are fragile !

 

The two hands holding or protecting the package is another reminder that the contents should be handled with care.

   

The symbol seen opposite tells those handling the package that it must be stored the right way up. The arrows point towards the top of the package.

   

The symbol showing the thermometer is found mainly on packages containing food and drink. The symbol clearly shows that the contents should be stored at a temperature between 10 and 20 degrees (centigrade).

 
 
 
 
 
 

The ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ symbol is regularly seen on packages in the UK. It is there to remind people to place their rubbish in a rubbish bin rather than dropping it on the floor. It is also aimed at making people aware that they have a responsibility to keep the environment around them tidy and litter free. Sometimes the symbol is called the ‘be environmentally friendly’ symbol.

 

POLYTHENE TEREPHTHALATE (PET) is a material widely used for packaging, especially drinks containers. It is 90% recyclable and the symbol opposite reminds the consumer of this fact. Hopefully the consumer will place the used packaging in the recycle bin, if he / she can find one.

 

These are internationally recognisable symbols for recycling. They are seen on many packages. Again, it is to remind the consumer of the potential recycling properties of the package he/she is about to throw away. It is aimed at encouraging the consumer to recycling packaging rather than throwing it into a general rubbish bin.

   

This symbol also means that the material is recyclable. However, the letters ‘alu’ mean aluminium. It means the container is manufactured from aluminium and that it can be recycled and used again. Look closely at drinks cans as they are normally manufactured from aluminium and may have this symbol
