Carton is a safe, economical and environmentally friendly packaging often used in the packaging sector. This explains the success of the cartoning machine in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics/perfume and food sectors. There are two different types of carton packaging machines.
Cartoners or cartoning machines are used in the packaging sector to package products in cartons or boxes. A cartoner forms carton packages: straight, closed, folded, side seal and sealed cartons. The machine shapes the cartons from pre-cut folding boxes and inserts the product, a leaflet and additional parts into them. The cartoner then closes the carton by snapping the flaps or using glue.
Case packers and tray packers are used to produce case or tray packaging from cardboard. These packages contribute to ease the transport and mobility of products as well as to enhance their protection. Case packers or tray packers form the package from flat cardboard boxes and insert the products into them. Before being formed, boxes are usually stored in the machine’s automatic storage area.
Buying a second-hand carton packaging machine remains a high investment for some companies. Prices vary depending on the condition, brand, location and year of manufacture of the machine. Osertech offers a wide range of equipment and machinery available, helping buyers to find the best cartoning machine opportunities.
