Kyocera adds “WORLDSTAR 2024” accolade

January 31, 2024

The company’s product packaging for its colour A4 printers wins the WORLDSTAR 2024 award.

Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. announced that its product packaging for colour A4 printers won the “WORLDSTAR 2024” award at the WORLDSTAR GLOBAL PACKAGING AWARDS organised by the World Packaging Organisation. This contest is the largest contest in the global packaging field.

Kyocera said: “For more than 20 years, we have been developing MFPs and printers with long life and low waste, minimizing the number of consumable parts that are disposed of, and supplying environmentally friendly products. We have also been striving for environmentally friendly packaging by mainly using pulp molds and corrugated board made from recycled paper to “get rid of plastic”.”

In order to replace plastic foam cushioning material with paper cushioning material for the packaging of MFPs and printers developed by Kyocera, the company has worked to improve the repeated shock resistance (shock resistance against multiple impacts), which has been a weak point of paper cushioning material.

Unlike foamed cushioning material, paper cushioning material does not have resilience, so its cushioning performance deteriorates when subjected to multiple impacts. Therefore, Kyocera improved the repeated cushioning performance by adopting a support shape in the corrugated cushioning material and a shape that prevents collapse and breakage in the pulp mold.

As a result, the impact value was reduced by up to 61% in a test in which the product was dropped five times consecutively on four sides to evaluate the repeated cushioning performance, and the paper packaging was adopted.
