General packaging requirements

In order to ensure delivery of parts in acceptable condition, compliance with the following points is absolutely essential:

  • The parts must be free from all contamination. There must be no contact with uncoated corrugated or solid board or with filling materials.
  • The main packaging (container, carton) and any additional basic packaging (film, film bag, tubes, formed  inserts, etc) must ensure protection of the parts against:
    - Mechanical damage (e.g. deformation, impact points) and
