  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • In order to provide a better understanding of the technical solutions of the present disclosure for those skilled in the art, packing boxes and packing methods according to the present disclosure will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.
  • FIG. 1 is a schematic structural view of an adjustable packing box according to an embodiment of the present disclosure, FIG. 2 is a schematic structural view of a box body of the adjustable packing box shown in FIG. 1, and FIG. 3 is a schematic structural view of a baffle block of the adjustable packing box shown in FIG. 1. As shown in FIGS. 1-3, the adjustable packing box comprises a box body 1 and a baffle block 2. The box body comprises a bottom surface 15, a plurality of side walls 11 and an accommodating space 12 defined by the bottom surface 15 and the plurality of side walls 11, wherein a first recess 16 is provided at a side of at least one side wall 11 adjacent to the accommodating space 12, and a guide rail 13 is provided in the first recess 16. The baffle block 2 is provided with a groove 21 engaged with the guide rail 13. The baffle block 2 is positionable in a plurality of designated positions on the guide rail 13, so as to adjust a volume of the accommodating space 12. In the context, the accommodating space 12 is provided for accommodating and fixing a product 3.
  • In the embodiment, the product 3 is optionally a display panel.
  • The designated positions generally depend on sizes of products to be accommodated and fixed in the accommodating space 12. In the embodiment, the adjustable packing box may be used for accommodating and fixing products 3 of different sizes. For example, if the baffle block 2 is positioned in different positions on the guide rail 13, then the products 3 of different sizes may be fixed in the adjustable packing box. When the product 3 is placed into the accommodating space 12, an edge of the product 3 may be brought into contact with baffle block 2, such that the product 3 may be hold and fixed by the baffle block 2.
  • In the embodiment, the volume of the accommodating place 12 may be controlled by adjusting the designated position of the baffle block 2 on the guide rail 13, such that the size of the accommodating space 12 is matched with the size of the product 3. In the context, the volume of the accommodating space 12 refers to a length and a width of the space defined by the baffle block 2 and configured for accommodating and fixing the product 3. In practical applications, the designated positions of any one or more baffle blocks 2 on the respective guide rails 13 may be adjusted to vary the volume of the accommodating space 12, so that the accommodating space 12 can accommodate products 3 of different sizes.
  • In the embodiment shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, the rectangular adjustable packing box has four side walls 11. The bottom surface 15 and the four side walls 11 together define the accommodating space 12. The four side walls 11 each is provided with a first recess 16 provided with a guide rail 13 therein. Correspondingly, four baffle blocks 2 are respectively provided in the four first recesses 16 and engaged with the four guide rails 13.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, the guide rail 13 is inclined by a first angle α relative to a surface C of the corresponding side wall 11 away from the accommodating space 12. In the embodiment, the first angle α is greater than 0° and less than 90°. Thus, the guide rail 13 is inclined relative to the surface C of the side wall 11 away from the accommodating space 12. Since the guide rail 13 is obliquely disposed, the length and/or the width of the volume of the accommodating space 12 may be flexibly changed by positioning the baffle block 12 in different positions on the oblique guide rail 13, so as to achieve the adjustment of the packing box.
  • As shown in FIGS. 1 and 3, the groove 21 is inclined by a second angle β relative to a surface D of the baffle block 2 facing the accommodating space 12. That is to say, the groove 21 is obliquely disposed in the baffle block 2. Optionally, the second angle β is equal to the first angle α. Thus, the surface D may be in parallel to the surface C, independent of the position of the baffle block 2 on the guide rail 13. Since the surface D is maintained to be in parallel to the surface C, the accommodating space 12 defined by the baffle blocks 2 can more securely accommodate and fix the product 3 (e.g., the display panel).
  • In the embodiment, a first engagement structure 22 is provided at a side of the baffle block 2 away from the accommodating space 12, and correspondingly, a second engagement structure 14 engaged with the first engagement structure 22 is provided on the side wall 11 of the box body facing the guide rail 13. The first engagement structure 22 is configured to be engaged with the second engagement structure 14 such that the baffle block 2 is unmovable relative to the guide rail 13, thereby avoiding movement of the baffle block 2 on the guide rail 13. Optionally, the first engagement structure 22 is a sawtooth structure, and the second engagement structure 14 is a sawtooth structure engaged with the first engagement structure 22. In another example, the first engagement structure is a sawtooth structure provided in the groove 21, and the second engagement structure is a sawtooth structure provided on the guide rail 13 and engaged with the first engagement structure. In other examples, the first engagement structure is a positioning pin and the second engagement structure is a positioning hole, alternatively, the first engagement structure is a positioning hole and the second engagement structure is a positioning pin. When the baffle block 2 is slid into the above-described designated position on the guide rail 13, the baffle block 2 may be fixed to the guide rail 13 by inserting the positioning pin into the positioning hole. In practical applications, the first engagement structure and the second engagement structure may be in form of other structures as long as the baffle block 2 can be fixed with respect to the guide rail 13.
  • A packing process for the product 3 using the adjustable packing box according to the embodiment of the present disclosure will be described in detail below with reference to FIGS. 4 and 5.
  • FIG. 4 is a schematic view showing that the product 3 is packed using the adjustable packing box shown in FIG. 1. As shown in FIG. 4, the groove 21 of each baffle block 2 cooperates with the corresponding guide rail 13, and the first engagement structure 22 is engaged with the second engagement structure 14 so that each baffle block 2 is positioned in the designated position on the corresponding guide rail 13. In FIG. 4, the designated position is end A of the guide rail 13. When the baffle block 2 is positioned at the end A of the guide rail 13, the volume of the accommodating space 12 defined by the baffle blocks 2 is minimal. At this time, a product 3 of a relatively smaller size can be fixed in the accommodating space 12.
  • FIG. 5 is another schematic view showing that the product 3 is packed using the adjustable packing box shown in FIG. 1. As shown in FIG. 5, the groove 21 of each baffle block 2 cooperates with the corresponding guide rail 13, and the first engagement structure 22 is engaged with the second engagement structure 14 so that each baffle block 2 is positioned in the designated position on the corresponding guide rail 13. In FIG. 5, the designated position is end B of the guide rail 13. When the baffle block 2 is positioned at the end B of the guide rail 13, the volume of the accommodating space 12 defined by the baffle block 2 is maximal. At this time, a product 3 of a relatively larger size can be fixed in the accommodating space 12.
  • It will be appreciated that the baffle block 2 may be positioned at any positions between the end A and the end B of the guide rail 13 to accommodate the product 3 of various sizes.
  • For example, when a product 3 of another size is needed to be accommodated in the adjustable packing box according to the embodiment of the present disclosure, the baffle block 2 may be removed from the guide rail 13 and then repositioned at a position suitable for fixing the product 3. In other ways, the baffle block 2 may be slid on the guide rail 13 to a position suitable for fixing the product 3, and then fixed to the guide rail 13 by means of the positioning pin and the positioning hole.
  • Further, a second recess 17 may be further provided between two adjacent side walls 11 for receiving a corner of the product 3. As shown in FIG. 5, the corner of the product 3 may extend into the second recess 17 when a product 3 of a relatively larger size is accommodated and fixed in the accommodating space 12. Since the corner of the product (e.g., display panel) is generally fragile, the second recess 17 can avoid the corner of the product from being in contact with the box body, thereby avoiding damaging the product.
  • In the adjustable packing box according to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the bottom surface and the plurality of side walls of the box body define an accommodating space, a first recess is provided at a side of at least one side wall adjacent to the accommodating space, a guide rail is provided in the first recess, the baffle block is provided with a groove engaged with the guide rail, and the baffle block is positionable in a plurality of designated positions on the guide rail by means of the groove, so as to adjust a volume of the accommodating space. According to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the volume of the accommodating space may be adjusted by means of the baffle block and the guide rail, thereby enabling the use of one packing box for packing products of different sizes. As a result, the costs of a mold for a new packing box are saved, thereby reducing production time and product costs. Since only one kind of packing boxes is used in inventory and usage, the management costs are reduced. In addition, since the volume of the packing box may be adjusted, the packing box according to the embodiments of the present disclosure may still be used even if a new product of a different size is developed.
  • FIG. 6 is a flow chart of a packing method according to an embodiment of the present invention. The packing method is based on the adjustable packing box according to the above-described embodiments. The method comprises steps of:
  • Step 101: positioning the baffle block in a designated position on the guide rail, in particular, positioning the baffle block in a designated position on the guide rail according to the size of the product;
  • Step 102: placing the product in the accommodating space, and holding and fixing the product by means of the baffle block.
  • Optionally, the baffle block 2 is provided with a first engagement structure, and the box body 1 is provided with a second engagement structure engaged with the first engagement structure. Thus, after the step 101, the method further comprises step of:
  • Step 103: engaging the first engagement structure provided on the baffle block with the second engagement structure provided on the box body such that the baffle block is unmovable relative to the guide rail.
  • The packing method can be achieved using the adjustable packing box according to the above embodiments.
  • In the packing method according to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the bottom surface and the plurality of side walls of the box body define an accommodating space, a first recess is provided at a side of at least one side wall adjacent to the accommodating space, a guide rail is provided in the first recess, the baffle block is provided with a groove engaged with the guide rail, and the baffle block is positionable in a plurality of designated positions on the guide rail by means of the groove, so as to adjust a volume of the accommodating space. According to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the volume of the accommodating space may be adjusted by means of the baffle block and the guide rail, thereby enabling the use of one packing box for packing products of different sizes. As a result, the costs of a mold for a new packing box are saved, thereby reducing production time and product costs. Since only one kind of packing boxes is used in inventory and usage, the management costs are reduced. In addition, since the volume of the packing box may be adjusted, the packing box according to the embodiments of the present disclosure may still be used even if a new product of a different size is developed.
  • It is to be understood that the above embodiments are merely illustrative embodiments for the purpose of illustrating the principles of the present disclosure, but the present disclosure is not limited thereto. It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various changes and modifications can be made to the present disclosure without departing from the scope and spirit of the present disclosure, and such changes and modifications fall within the scope of the present disclosure.
