Corrugated box is one of the most widely used packaging products. And the amount used has always been the first of various packaging products. Corrugated cardboard is made into corrugated cardboard boxes through die cutting, creasing, nailing or gluing. In addition to protecting commodities, facilitating storage and transportation, it also plays a role in beautifying and promoting commodities. Corrugated boxes are environmentally friendly products, which are good for environmental protection and convenient for loading, unloading and transportation. Unico Packing is one of the leading corrugated box manufacturers from China.
History of Corrugated Boxes
In 1856, the British brothers Edward Healy and Edward Allen invented the pressurized corrugated paper as the inner lining of the hat to breathe and absorb sweat. In 1871, American Albert Jones invented single-sided corrugated cardboard for packaging glass lampshades and similar fragile items, and obtained the first patent in the United States. By the end of the 19th century, the United States began to study the use of corrugated cardboard to make packaging and shipping boxes.
In 1920, double corrugated cardboard came out, and its use expanded rapidly. During the First World War, corrugated boxes accounted for only 20% of transport packaging. But during the Second World War, corrugated boxes accounted for 80% of transport packaging. Corrugated boxes have now become the most widely used packaging containers in modern commerce and trade, and are also one of the most important packaging forms adopted by countries in the world today.

The size design of the carton is a very important work in the structural design of the corrugated carton. A qualified carton product must have protection and good shape. Especially for cartons that integrate sales packaging and transportation packaging functions, a reasonable size will be the key to carton design. Because the change in size will directly affect the changes in the various properties of the carton. In short, in the structural design of corrugated boxes, it should be determined according to the manufacturing equipment used, different production processes, corrugated paper composed of different corrugated shapes, and the type and nature of the goods inside.
