A leading global manufacturer of forming machine technology, were looking to develop exportable corrosion protection packaging that was cheaper and easier to manage.

A leading global manufacturer of forming machine technology, were looking to develop exportable corrosion protection packaging that was cheaper and easier to manage.

The client's challenge

The existing packaging was traditional complex machine packaging for sea transport consisting of aluminium composite film in combination with desiccant. There was a need for it to be replaced by a simpler, cheaper but still effective and safe solution, it had to be suitable for sea transport to Asia.

The Antalis solution

A VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors) packaging solution consisting of VCI film and additional VCI deposits in the form of VCI paper, and VCI chips placed above and inside the machine were proven to be the optimum choice. 

The outer packaging does not need to be heat-sealed, significantly reducing packing time and costs. This method ensures the corrosion protection for sea shipment is not compromised, and continues to hold even if the outer packaging is slightly damaged. Any opening of the packaging for a short time (e.g. by customs officers) is therefore unproblematic as once resealed the corrosion protection builds up again.

The process

  • Development of the Customer Pain Points and evaluation of the existing packaging in an initial conversation with the customer
  • Checking the functionality of the system using a test shipment to Asia by sea freight
  • Development of an optimised corrosion protection packaging by product management

Advantages
