      Puncture Resistant Packaging: Four Ways to Better Sewn Fabric Dunnage

      Puncture resistant packaging supports sewn fabric dunnage that lasts longer and supports the bottom line. In the automotive and heavy truck industries, parts that are designed to lock into place can tear reusable packaging during loading and unloading. Small rips can become big holes, and parts bags that lack sufficient strength won’t last long. Torn fabric

      Reusable Packaging Materials: Brushed Tricot for Sewn Fabric Dunnage

      Reusable packaging materials include brushed tricot fabric for sewn fabric dunnage. Brushed tricot is a soft, liner material that can be used with Class A surfaces such as chrome parts or faux wood panels. This packaging material offers numerous advantages, but the brushing process makes tricot prone to attracting dirt. If parts with Class A

      Reusable Packaging Costs: Thread Selection for Sewn Fabric Dunnage

      Reusable packaging costs include thread selection for sewn fabric dunnage. Lower-cost threads may seem like a bargain, but using thread that’s too thin and too weak can cause sewn fabric dunnage seams to fail. Rack bag threads that can’t withstand the loading or unloading of parts aren’t cost-effective. For the best return on investment (ROI),

      The Top Reusable Packaging Posts of 2017

Rack Bag Design for Sewn, Reusable Fabric Dunnage Rack bag design isn’t just about pocket size or material selection. It’s not just about computer aided design (CAD) software either. Fabric Dunnage: How Dirty Rack

      Class A Surfaces and Reusable Packaging Materials

      Class A surfaces include chrome grills and faux wood panels. To prevent scratching, parts bags use a soft liner material. Brush tricot fabric is a good choice, but this reusable packaging material is also “dirt magnet”. For packaging engineers, effective material selection is a key part of product design. To make an informed decision, engineers

      Returnable Packaging Basics: Digital vs. Analog Design

      For packaging engineers, a knowledge of returnable packaging basics begins with digital vs. analog design. Today, many engineers use computer-aided design (CAD) software with sewn fabric dunnage. Digital drawings are useful, but CAD files won’t consider the needs of the personnel who load and remove parts bags. That’s why analog design for recyclable packaging is
