2021 promises to be a year full of opportunities and threats for companies. Despite the context that the pandemic has left us, the Spanish industry is expected to achieve a great investment jump of 10.3% throughout the year.
Therefore, there is beginning to be movement in the sectors, since possible transfers of factories, renewal of the means of production or even the expansion of them are considered. The companies in the sector are beginning the search for a packaging for industrial machinery that guarantees the transfer in an efficient, safe way and with the minimum possible costs.
When we talk about packaging of industrial machinery and capital goods, everything that has to do with fixed assets is taken into account, that is, structures, machines, motors, transformers, components, etc. The type of products that are transported may alter the weight, size, shape and materials that compose it. At Embalex we know that each case is a challenge that ensures adequate and necessary protection for each type of merchandise, including its handling and transport. For this reason, three factors must be taken into account for the packaging of capital goods regardless of the merchandise in question:
1. Wide variety of industrial machinery
Each packaging project will have its own conditions and characteristics depending on the type of industrial machinery to be packed. Industrial packaging companies will determine an ideal and personalized solution, depending on the dimensions of the merchandise, the weight and even the use of wooden or metal structures to reinforce the packaging.
2. Sensitivity of materials: humidity or temperature
External conditions are always factors to take into account when it comes to packaging for industrial machinery. The destination is vital since knowing the external conditions such as humidity or temperature will be key in choosing one material or another. For example, if we are faced with a panorama of temperature changes, isothermal insulators are prepared to protect the merchandise without the need to use special containers.
3. Knowing the transport is relevant
The importance of industrial machine transport is vital when choosing materials for packing capital goods. Export can be carried out both by land, air and sea means. For example, it may be the case in which the transport is by sea and condensation occurs inside the packaging due to the temperature and high salinity of the water, in fact it can spoil the merchandise. There are anti-corrosion packaging to avoid this type of problem during transport and storage.
It is also necessary to take into account the machine as well as the way in which the packaged product will be handled. In addition to allowing a secure lashing that avoids movements during the transfer.
