Delivering a turnkey solution is complex. Some aspects to consider are:
1. Comprehension of needs and requirements of customer.
2. Packaging format:multipack, shrink film, single unit packs, etc.
3. Technical aspects of the packaging to be handled- shape, surface, weight, conditions of use, etc.
4. Technical aspects of the production line- packs per minute, space available, lanes, warm / cold conditions, etc.
5. Tape carry handle design- type (e.g.: pre-laminated, foamed, etc), size, coat layer, artwork, special features.
6. Marketing aspects of the handled packagingpreserving the product image, packaging, differentiation from competitors, brand visibility, time sensitive promotions, qr code, bar code, slogans up to the label-tape carry handle.
7. Choice of the most suitable handle applicator for the customer’s needs.
8. Hold test:a sample of the tape carry handle is manufactured and applied to the packaging. It is then subjected to several tests ensure that the hold is 100% safe.
9. Application test of the handle applicator on the packaging in transit- presence of wrinkles, application in the same point on every package, right coupling of the paper inlay with the film (for traditional carry handles).
