DS Smith Packaging Hungary gained many recognitions of the packaging industry in 2021 and topped it off by winning their first-ever WorldStar Awards! The international jury selected their sustainable packaging solution developed for an automotive product as the best in the electronics category.
The award-winning packaging solution
The challenge was to unify the packaging for approx. 600 product types, replace the inefficient manual packaging process, and design out problem plastic & waste for sustainability.
The solution is a 100% recyclable, size and material optimized packaging solution that is harmonized to fit a wide range of semiconductor products for Infineon Technologies.
The innovative construction fits into automated lines (assemble, packing, labeling, palletizing), totally protects products from mechanical and electrical discharge, yet is user-friendly.
The benefits are many. It reduced weight (96 tons annually) which helps to minimize CO2 emission and provides logistics optimization (cca. 25% fewer pallets/year) resulting in a material cost saving of 56%.
