Suitable equipment must use to package various product categories, many of which require cartons. The upright, folded, and sealed cartons get produced by a cartoning machine. This device also referred to as a carton, is responsible for making the object stand straight, closing and folding it, and then side seeming and sealing it. Depending on how the carton gets fed through the machine, there are two types of Cartoning Machine: horizontal and vertical.
How does it work?
The cartoning machine turns a blank carton board into a filled carton containing the product. A different alternative is to pack several products into a single carton. This Cartoning Machine fills the cartons and then seals them by applying glue to the ends of the carton. It operates by selecting one carton from a folded stack of cartons and raising it.
Types of Cartoning Machines:
Vertical Cartoning Machines:
When using a vertical cartoning machine, the product is frequently loaded manually or automatically from the top while the carton is fed vertically through the device. For “bare” products that can or must be supplied by gravity and get sold by weight or volume, vertical cartoning Machines are appropriate.
Horizontal Cartoning Machines:
The goods get placed into horizontal cartoning machines from the side of the carton. These cartons have the option of automatic lateral product loading into the carton, hot-melt application or flap insertion for end closure, and continuous or intermittent operation. Food products like pizzas, cakes, vacuum-packed rice or coffee, and cereals get frequently packaged using horizontal cartoning machines.
