Case Study

Simple, effective corner solution increases strength and reduces damages for Danfoss

The challenge

  • Danfoss discovered the corners of their containers were collapsing and causing damage to their products.
  • They saw an opportunity to improve and optimise the packaging to prevent damage.
     

     

Our approach

  •  We designed a solution which involved a piece of corrugated board folded in two directions, creating a self-locking function, making the solution extremely strong (increased stacking strength by 70% according to internal stacking strength test undertaken by Smurfit Kappa)
  • The new solution is flexible, easy to handle, saves space and, most importantly, eliminates the risk of collapse during transport. All with no price increase for the customer. 
     
 

The result

  • 40% reduction in damaged products
  • 20-30% stronger containers
  • Cost neutral optimised packaging
