Capabilities Packing Options
Packing is one of the last-mile processes in the aluminium extrusion value chain, but is often overlooked or shortchanged. When done well, good packing brings a lot of value to the table by saving on the cost of damage to the finished product. Our aim, at Banco Aluminium Limited, is to provide optimum protection to the product through intelligent use of packing material. This also reduces packing waste which is one of the emerging sustainability issues in the industry today.
According to our customers’ requirements and each profile particularities, we provide custom solutions for packing.
OPTIONS FOR INTERNAL PACKING
Profiles are stacked together with no internal separation between them. We recommend this type of packaging only for mill finish profiles.
PAPER LAYER SEPARATION
Thin paper between the rows is used to avoid friction between aluminium bars during transportation.
Thin paper interleave the aluminium bars to provide additional protection to critical surface of the aluminium bars.
CARDBOARD STRIP LAYER
Offers horizontal protection between the layers of a package. The distance between cardboard strips is at the discretion of the packers.
One or more bars are wrapped with crepe paper, bubble wrap or nylon. We place thin paper interleaves between the bars to provide additional protection from friction.
OPTIONS FOR EXTERNAL PACKING
Made from 8X10 cm wooden blocks on the base of the package, 2X9 cm wooden lumbers on the sides and 2X18 cm wooden lumbers on the upper side of each package secured with a plastic strap. In this way, we achieve stability of the package and its protection during transportation from contact with other packages.
Cardboard is wrapped around the package for protection during transport and from dust during storage. The cardboard dimensions are 107X340 cm. The open ends of the package are standard on unpainted profile since they protect against moisture concentration on the profiles.
The package is wrapped around with nylon (4 sides and edges) for protection from moisture and dust. Recommended for overseas shipments.
WOODEN PALLET IN THE
MIDDLE OF THE PACKAGE
Consists of 2X9X300 cm boards placed over the blocks at the base of the package. Provides stability and protection of the package during transport with forklifts.
The package is wrapped around 4 sides with a stretch film for protection from moisture, dust and to provide better stability. Thus, we avoid the friction between aluminium products during transportation.
