Keep everything in it’s right place
In the packaging industry, void fill is an essential step in ensuring that products are transported safely and securely. Void fill refers to the process of filling the empty space within a package or container with materials to prevent the product from moving around and getting damaged during transportation. This is particularly crucial for fragile or delicate items that are susceptible to breakage, as it helps to protect the product and minimize the risk of damage.
There are several materials used for void fill, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most commonly used materials include foam peanuts, bubble wrap, air pillows, paper, and corrugated inserts. The choice of void fill material depends on a variety of factors, such as the fragility of the product, the weight of the item, and the mode of transportation. By selecting the appropriate void fill material, businesses can ensure that their products are transported safely and securely, reducing the risk of damage and losses associated with product returns and claims.
