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...
