Rounded corner packaging: why is it exclusive to food packaging bags?
January 23, 2023
don’t know when it started, the packaging bags on the market are no longer the same right angles, and the packaging of many snacks and toys has gradually become rounded.
Why is round corner packaging more and more popular, and why is round corner packaging still not widely popularized? Today yltpackaging will solve your doubts for you. At present, the most common round cut corner packaging bag products are snacks. Most of the packaging of snacks is made of composite plastic film. For food with a small weight, the bag is small in size and relatively thin, so it may scratch your hands if you are not careful. Although other right-angle packaging products also have this problem, consumers are used to eating snacks with their hands, so this problem is more prominent. Under the concept of people-oriented consumption, snack manufacturers and packaging bag manufacturers propose to use rounded corners in order to avoid this problem. At the same time, from an artistic point of view, the arc is the shape that best demonstrates the affinity, which can weaken the aggressiveness of the product and make the product more accessible visually. Therefore, at this stage, many packaging bags for snacks, toys, cosmetics and other items have begun to use rounded corners, and consumers have a higher acceptance of products with rounded corners. So why has rounded corner packaging not been widely promoted in our country? According to yltpackaging, it is mainly limited by the convenience of process processing. Right-angle packaging only needs to cut the film and make bags, while round-corner packaging needs to add a step of cutting round corners, which will increase the cost and prolong the production time. In addition, packaging equipment and so on will also limit the molding of its packaging, such as the aluminum foil bag packaging we often say, the bag itself can only be designed as a large roll, and then the machine can only be closed by scissors for hot air, etc., so the fastest The method is to cut with a straight knife. If the mouth is curved, there will be accidents such as hooking during transportation and transmission. However, for the food industry, the cost of designing rounded corner packaging bags is far lower than the resulting return, and most of the food industry uses rounded corners. In fact, many countries in the world have rounded the corners of packaging, and the technology is relatively mature. Therefore, it is unknown whether rounded corner packaging will become a future development trend.
