Abstract:
The working theory of the new bag is listed as follows: When the Multicoat Free Standing Bag is used to package the cargo in bulk, the frame sticks, like an umbrella, will be freestanding and keep the bag in a certain shape without the help of manpower or machine utilization, so it is easy to operate and convenient to use. When the bag is transporting or holding flowers or plants, it needs to have several blowholes in the bottom or several grommets in order to have the bag ventilating. Being that new free standing bag has several separated but flexible frame sticks inside its body, it can free stand and fold for easy storage purposes. It may also keep its mouth open without manpower or mechanical help. Meanwhile, it protects the cargo inside the bag like flowers and plants from being squeezed and damaged in the procession of holding, transporting and transferring. Comparing with the current packaging bag, it saves the manpower and is easier to take and use than before. At the same time it can be used for holding waste and flowing materials, so it can be a replacement of buckets and baskets etc.
