Electronic device packaging is considered one of the most challenging among all packaging levels. Vibrations and impacts during transport can easily damage the fragile contents resulting in returns or exchanges. If damage happens to internal circuits, motherboards, then detection may not be possible at the customer end – and that commonly results in loss of brand trust and goodwill – and that is very difficult to retrieve back.

A great electronics packaging ideally should address protection from extreme temperatures, electrostatic discharge, mechanical damage, and high-frequency noise emission.

In this article, Mr Gaurav Jalan, Director, Packman Packaging, which is the packaging partner of some of the countries leading electronic gains, share key points one must remember to ensure that your electronics are safely shipped.

1. Choosing the right box corrugated box

Similar to walls surrounding a castle, the corrugated box is the first line of defence to protect electronic devices. Corrugated cartons are different from cardboard boxes and it is made from heavy paper pulp. Corrugated boxes are comprised of three layers of paper – inside liner, an outside liner, and fluting with a ruffled shape, which runs in between the two.

As a result of their design, corrugated cartons are cost-effective and, depending upon their construction, can hold a wide variety of weights, protect against moisture and are a (100% recyclable) sustainable choice. Depending on the amount of protection required, corrugate is available in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses.

2. Select the right protective packaging 

Selecting the right secondary packaging is vital to keep the electronic main device and its components like charger, battery, power cords etc. safe during transit. Good quality bubble wraps are one of the most common secondly packaging materials for electronic devices. One way of doing this is the use of a good quality bubble sheet to wrap every electronic component individually.

While wrapping the device and its corners, ensure that all the edges are also covered to prevent chipping or puncturing the box. By covering your electronics in bubble wrap, you will also be keeping them safe from static electricity and excess heat. 

3. Select a right sealing material 

Selecting a correct sealing material is the thirds key factor of electronic packaging. At Packman Packaging, we recommend using tamper-evident tape as this will help to deter any unauthorized access during delivery.

For example, tamper-evident tape custom printed packaging tape and corrugated box create a strong bond that cannot be removed without damaging the outer package, making it a great option to protect valuable electronics such as mobile phones, tablets and similar products.
