DS Smith Tecnicarton designs new lighter, folding carboard packaging for the metalworking industry

The exclusive packaging is particularly suitable for heavy bulks in the sector and the possibility of customising the measurements allows it to be adapted to both European regulations and offshore platforms

As it is a cardboard packaging, it is lighter than its wooden counterparts, thus minimizing the occupational risks related to its handling and assembly.

DS Smith Tecnicarton has designed and manufactured a new packaging for the metallurgical sector in four-wave laminated cardboard, especially suitable for heavy bulks in the sector, whether they are positioned or extendable parts.


It is a unique packaging that is extremely resistant and able to adapt to the needs of the product and its transport conditions. In addition, the possibility of customizing the measures, allows to adapt it to the European regulations, as well as to the maritime platforms or to the measures stipulated by the client.

Another of its main advantages is that its folding system allows a single piece to function as both a bottom and a body and to be assembled in a single movement. This innovation introduces significant cost savings in the assembly process, as time is significantly reduced; it facilitates stacking and allows for a significant reduction in storage space.

As Antonio Cebrián, Commercial Director of DS Smith Tecnicarton explains, "The metallurgical sector is one with high performance and very resistant packaging needs. Therefore, the continuous innovation to which we subject our packaging has allowed us to evolve from the traditional wooden packaging, which was used mainly for export, to a cardboard packaging, sustainable, fully customizable and able to guarantee the protection, safety and quality of the product".

Tecnicarton's experience in the metallurgical sector has allowed it to develop an industrial packaging whose interior is specially designed to protect metal parts.

To do this, it offers the possibility of integrating personalized packaging for each need, which is adapted to the dimensions of each package, as is the case, for example, of the bags with VCI treatment that protect the metal parts and avoid their corrosion.

Finally, it should be noted that, as it is a cardboard packaging, it is lighter than its wooden counterparts, thus minimizing the occupational risks linked to the handling and assembly of the packaging.
