Semi-auto bottom lock structure carton box

Before the artist draw an semi-automatic bottom lock structure carton packaging, he should be very clear around the size relations from the details of the leading parts on the bottom of the box. The underside size has an exceptionally close relation with all the main dimensions with the box template. How big length and wider and the interaction impact the underside structure of the therapy lamp template. Let’s read the following photo one example is.

In the image above, L is short for length, W represents width, CAL represents caliper.(The construction descripted here only L/4>=T/3, if T/4<W/3, usually we do not suggest this underside lock structure, for starters the paper utilisation is relatively reduced, for another issue the carrying mental ability of the bottom part is not decent)

The first portion, the relations involving the size of the various components in the freighter and the duration, width of the box template:

Y1=W/2 Y2=Y1-CAL/2(As long as the value of Y2 similiar to Y1 or less than Y1this relations works, it mainly depends on the caliper value)

box templates

X1=(W-CAL)/2

X2=(L-X1*2)

X3=X2+CAL

Y3=W/4(Y3 can be similiar to W/4 or less than W/4, it can not be greater than W/4, ) then it will be the roundings of each corner, we will talk later.

The second part is the variety deformations of the bottom sturcture.

The left side is enhanced bottom structure, the offset angle T1=30°

There’s a T2=5° angle in the left buttom structure, the two bottom structure are very similiar, the left one is easier for forming.

There’s an angle on the left bottom structure, T3=30°, if match the left bottom structure with the enhanced bottom structure ①, the bottom structure will be more stronger, of course, the structure will be a little more complex.

④ Position

bottom structure

As for single box template structure, the change of the position is meaningless, sometimes in order to improve the paper utilization, we will change the position for step and repeat process.

step and repeat

In the photo above, if we changed the postion, the paper utilization improved obviously.

When the value of L is large and the goods loading is heavy within the carton box(fruit box for example), we can change the bottom lock structure into multiple corners for heavy loading. We will discuss this kind of complex bottom lock structure in next article.

Keyboard packaging design

Keyboard has been the frequent employed input gadget in our everyday life, once we got a new PC, you will have all kind of packaging packing containers for keep track of, mouse, motherboard, keyboard, Harddrive etc. In this post I’d like to speak about keyboard packaging design. The process divided into A couple of parts, computer keyboard box structurel design and graphic design, here we go.For

keyboard box structural design, We mainly utilised Packmage CAD application, firstly I have to pick up laptop keyboards box template from its collection.

Input

the gap, width, detail, caliper value etc. according to needs. For example, L=400mm, W=145mm, D= 35mm, Cal=1mm, then we can help to conserve the configurations with DXF file format to generate the laptop keyboard die cut format to aid the printing.The second

action is graphics, we can employ AI as well as Photoshop application for keyboard set packaging graphics, the keyboard package structural style also can be stored as Pdf file format, even as start graphic design, we can importance the E-book format into Photoshop immediately.

Once the graphic design finished, we can import the graphic design into Packmage CAD software to texture with the keyboard structural design, the we can check the 3D box modeling via 3D module.

How to check carton box structure with 3D module

For box structural designers, when design a carton box template for clientele it is quite challenging to check if the box structural design is cost-effective or otherwise with no physical reference. Within the following paragraphs we’ll talk about using Packmage CAD software program three dimensional lines mode to determine the rationality from the carton box.

Within the beginning, we’ve to uncover a die line template in Packmage CAD box template library, as an example, footwear box template.

The photo above
could possibly be the die type of footwear box template, there’s a interior lock structure around the lid from the shoe box. Right after we finished the structural style in the shoe box according to the necessary size, we’ll check out the 3 dimensional mode look into the structural style.

Look at the photo above, we’re still not apparent for several size particulars by way of this 3 dimensional box modeling picture, or doubt the if the dimensions of shoe box are reasonable or otherwise. For instance, the lid structure from the shoe box can not be observed completely.

In Packmage CAD
software program, we are able to transform to lines mode by press short-cut crucial L inside the 3 dimensional interface.

All through this mode, we’re in a position to appear in to the complete structure from the shoe box clearly, and also the whole process is easy adequate. Nonetheless, a single aspect we’ve to give consideration, due to the fact the 3 dimensional module shows the fabric from the shoe box, which means it’ll display the caliper from the paper, so before we use line mode to identify the box structure in three dimensional module, we ought to alter the caliper value into in Parametric style interface.

folding carton structural design

A few days ago, we talked about tubular box structural design, I shared some parameters and formulas in tubular box design, in this article I will talk about  folding carton structural design.

For carton box structural designers those are quite simple trays folding carton box design, they can finish those drawings in a few hours by means of the packaging design software. For other people in packaging industry, it might took days for them to understand the folding carton box structural design theory, not to mention drawing them with a CAD software.Actually those two tray folding cartons can be find in Packmage CAD software box templates library, which also include hundreds of other box templates such as glued trays, self-locking trays, dispensers etc. User could find them easily according to the classification by material, structure and usages. The die line drawing could be exported as PDF, DXF formats etc. Which made the trays folding carton structural design much more easier.

Then I will give the following information for trays folding carton stuctural design.
