Talking about printed corrugated box, you could not avoid talking about slotted carton box, which you can see all around the market, it is the most standard & useful box packaging style now. Use for packing most products, also as shipping carton. It has 4 subclass, they are Regular slotted carton box (RSC), Half slotted carton box (HSC), Overlap slotted carton box (OSC) and Full overlap slotted carton box (FOL).
Different between those slotted containers
Regular Slotted Carton -RSC
Standard shipping box, where the flaps fold down and meet in the middle. Tape or glue must be used to seal carton..
Overlap Slotted Carton -OSC
Standard shipping carton where all flaps have the same length and the outer flaps overlap by one inch or more.
Full Overlap Container -FOL
Standard shipping carton where the top and bottom flaps overlap each other. Offers more strength for heavy objects, and provides more rigidity to minimize flex.
Half Slotted Carton -HSC
Standard shipping box with no flaps (open) on top. Bottom flaps must be sealed with tape.
1. Regular slotted carton box (RSC)
(RSC) is the most common box style used for shipping and storage. The two outer flaps of an RSC box meet at the center of the box when folded and are usually closed using tape, or staples. Where the product requires additional protection over the top or bottom, corrugated pads can be placed between the inside flaps.
The RSC can be used for most products, and is the most common box style. If the product requires a flat, even bottom surface, or the protection of two full layers, a fill-in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps.
2. Half slotted carton box (HSC)
Same as RSC box, but without one side of flaps.
3. Overlap slotted carton box (OSC)
All flaps have the same length and the outer flaps overlap by one inch or more. The box is easily closed, either with adhesives or frequently with staples driven through the overlap area. This style is commonly used when the length of the box is considerably greater than the width, resulting in a long gap between the inner flaps. The sealed overlap helps to keep the outer flaps from pulling apart.
4. Full overlap slotted carton box (FOL)
All flaps are the same length (approximately the width of the box). When closed, the outer flaps come within one inch of complete overlap. The style is especially resistant to rough handling. Stacked on its bottom panel, the overlapping flaps provide added cushioning and protection. Stacked on its side, the extra thickness provides added stacking strength.
