Custom Zip Tab and E-Flute Packaging for the Seafood Industry

(click on thumbnail to enlarge)

When a client in the seafood industry contacted Stronghaven Inc. about the possibility of providing 60,000 units of corrugated packaging for several of its products, we took on the job without hesitation. We went over to our client's facility and had a look at their machinery. Following the customer-supplied specifications, we ended up designing a die-cut box that would run on our client's Kliklok auto-erector, which was designed to run chip board packaging.

We designed the box to have a zip tab along the side, e-flute for added strength, and developed a four-corner lock that would allow for both flexibility and secure packaging. Since our client would not allow for a set-up failure higher than 5%, we had to exercise extra precision and caution in our craftsmanship (especially given the fact that our client's senior management were watching as we developed their master box).
