Compression tubes

Using the high edge-crush resistance of corrugated to reinforce a package

A Compression tube is really nothing more than a piece of cardboard rolled around an object and taped at the overlap to form a sleeve.

What makes these sleeves so special is the height.

They're exactly the height of the inside height of the container.

The tube is placed upright in the center of the box with normal fill allowances on the sides.

The object sits in the midpoint of the tube, held vertically in position by infill that's been packed into both open ends.

When the end flaps close down on top of the tube, the span of unsupported cardboard is reduced considerably by breaking down the area into smaller supported sections.

The tube does double-duty as as a reinforcing brace and an isolation mechanism, suspending the item in the center of the package.

Compression tube style packages are strong, rigid and compact.


They use less material and make up in far less TIME than a double box, with a lot less hassle...
