Advantages Of Cartoning Machine To Your Business

There are numerous advantages to adapting and using a cartoning machine. Some of the reasons why you need a cartoning machine are:

Handle A Wide Range Of Products

You find cartoning machines can handle multiple tasks such as packaging toothpaste and toothbrushes, in a single package, for instance.

Product Protection and Transport Ease

A carton secures its contents and given their regular shape, they are ideal for bulk packaging for transit purposes.

Tamper Proof

You can protect items from interference and adulteration by using a cartoning machine which also prevents tampering.

The distinctive sealing executed by cartoning machinery can help determine any tampering efforts.

Time Saving

When it comes to packaging, high volume production processes are prone to time wastage when manually done.

However, using a cartoning machine fastens the process achieving a high throughput while minimizing labour input.

Unlike humans, machines do not tire, thus production continues for longer periods without breaks resulting in higher output.

Parts Of Cartoner Machine

You find cartoning machines are an assemblage of devices including electrical and mechanical components. You find these components set up such that they can effectively generate and/or transform the system’s mechanical energy.

The main parts of a cartoning machine are:

Control Panel

The control panel allows you to manage and regulate the production process of a cartoning machine.

You find modern machines combining the frequency converter, PLC and HMI allowing an operator to instruct or cancel actions.

Using the HMI, you can alter the production process parameters to attain a desired outcome within a specified time frame. Aside from managing the machine, the control panel can notify you if any other sections of the machine fail.

Electric Panel And Motors

The electric panel is the central nervous system of the cartoning machine which also powers the pneumatic system.

Having a schematic diagram for a cartoning machine’s electrical components is handy in case of an electrical failure.

Motors are exclusively responsible for all movements generated by the machine when in operation.

Automatic Lubrication System

Consistent lubrication influences the longevity of bearings, gears and belts with performance effectiveness of the moving parts down to adequate greasing.

Factors such as high temperatures, moisture, humidity, and contamination, reduce the usefulness of gears, belts and bearings.

Failing to lubricate your cartoning machine parts may negatively influence performance, maintenance costs and schedules.

Pneumatic System & Cartoning Pack Tooling

When picking blank cartons to commence the cartoning process, the pneumatic system’s vacuum suction is essential.

Other components flow in order from the feeding chambers with the leaf folder connected to the conveyor before carton sealing.

Printer

Usually an ink-jet printer, it allows you to provide relevant information regarding the contents in a carton.

Such information includes: the manufacture and expiry or best before dates, batch number, conformed standards and certifications, etc.

Safety System

You need to be cautious when using any machine including the cartoning machine. An important safety feature on this and any machine is the emergency button.

Also, you find these buttons at intervals along the machine for convenience of reach in the event of an emergency.

You should press the emergency button when you notice strange sounds or unwanted motion emerging from the machine.

Pressing the button cuts the machine’s power supply preventing disaster or losses as a result.

Another precaution to take is to ensure that the cartoning machine’s electrical circuit is properly earthed and grounded.

You prevent incidences if shocking derived from the machine’s body which are unpleasant and potentially fatal.

Carton Chute, Conveyors, Guide Rail And Rollers

Conveyors connect to the rollers to facilitate movement of cartons deriving motion ability from running motors that.

You note that these motors connect to a gearbox that controls the motors’ speed.

The carton proceeds to the next phase after product packaging making this process critical. Meanwhile, the guide rail directs the carton along the conveyer runway.

How Cartoning Machine Works

You can break down the working of a cartoning machine as follows:

i. Gearing System

When you power the motors, a mechanical movement occurs at the primary drive.

It then transmits it to additional gearing components by the gearing axis, threaded shafts, and support axis.

While dependent on the machine design, it causes a reciprocating action in the machine’s central part.

Along the chain process, you observe communication and intermission movements by the carton chain.

ii. Blank Carton Section

A carton suction process unloads the blank cartons stored in the storeroom. The sucker also absorbs broken carton or those blocked between the blank carton suction point and the storeroom.

iii. Feeding Mechanism

The feeding mechanism varies with a turntable finding use in positioning items onto a conveyor in bottle cartoning, for example..

The goal of a feeding mechanism is to connect to a feeding screw or the carton tooling machine.

The cartoning machine’s three entrances transport all materials to the feeding structure, which includes a material feeder and a feeding tank.

iv. Folding Mechanism

As the leaflet conveyor runs, the leaflet folder forms up the leaflet. Thereafter, you have stacking, paper separation, and suction adjustment.

You place a paper piece on the feed-table, and set the machine-wheel to position.

This causes the suction nozzle to rise to peak position in the adjustment of the stacker.

Setting the suction nozzle to the highest position allows easy carton access to the blank’s bottom. This leaves a space between the remnant stack and the picked paper.

v. Product Insertion

At this stage, the machine fits the items into the carton boxes. The feed mechanism accepts products before transferring them to the base where insertion occurs.

vi. Carton Sealing

Here, you find a tongue (tiny and large) carton closing device.

The tiny tongue consists a folding pad and box guide, and positioned on both conveyor sides.

When running the carton on the box track, it can only happen for a specified range.

The paddles derive power from the close device, which duplicates movement at a set angle range.

The large tongue derives motion from a pair of revolving cranks that flatten the plate resulting in folding, tongue, and sealing.

You note another printing process that assigns date stamps, texts, environmental protection labels, among others.

vii. Chute

A pressurized arm at the carton chute aids in the ejection of packed cartons. Furthermore, when the carton’s integrity falters, the action cover labels the carton as accepted or rejected.

Features Of Carton Packaging Machine

You identify the following features of a carton packaging machine:

i. A cartoning machine can detect cartons of different sizes within a defined range without the need for parts replacement.

You find this feasible by the system’s simple adjustability.

ii. The machine contains sensors that guides the operation with automatic stopping capability. Instances where the machine can stop are:

  • When there’s little or no load.
  • When the suck leaflet is absent for an extended period.
  • When compressed air is low or you there’s a negative vacuum pressure.
  • Also present with this machine are photoelectric monitoring and detecting systems for overload protection and machine failure detection.

This system can also execute a system diagnosis to discover and resolve issues.

iii. The cartoning machine has a comprehensive servo system as well as a synchronous belt drive system devoid of lubrication.

iv. The cartoning packaging machine contains PLC system with a human machine interface for seamless operation.

Using this system, you can automatically set your parameters including speed and count.

v. You find this machine with a servo motor that’s adjustable, useful in material feeding and carton packaging.

Carton Packing Machine Vs Case Packer Machine

A cartoning packing machine creates and erects cartons for use in the packaging of items or products in a production line.

The main component of cartons is carton-board, which is a semi-flexible paper composed of wood-based fiber layers.

A case packer machine packages items into a case which is considerable larger than a carton. A case employs strong corrugated board that is heavier and rigid than carton’s cardboard paper.

Usually, you pre-form a case before using a case packer machine. You can package several cartons into a case thus finding use in transportation of goods.

Carton Packaging Machine Maintenance Process

Maintaining your carton packaging machines is essential in reducing downtime and ensuring your equipment runs at peak performance for years.

You can follow these maintenance actions on a recurring cycle based on your needs:

  • Inspect filters and, if necessary, replace them.
  • Inspect for wear, and clean hot melt hoses and tanks.
  • Clean hoses and nozzles, replacing them where necessary.
  • Before employing a new hot melt adhesive, clean and drain the carton gluer by running a cleaning solvent.
Closing Techniques In Cartoner Machine

When closing cartons, you note that there are different applicable criteria plausible with a cartoning machine. The following are the most common carton closing procedures for cartoning machines:

i. Tuck-in Closure

The tuck-in closure makes use of the carton’s flaps to create a long-lasting closure. With friction fit or shore locking, the flap sticks. You can find the tucks on the carton’s panel one or two.

ii. Closure with Hot Glue

This method includes applying hot glue to the carton’s flaps to form a permanent closure. Hot glue closures finds use on boxes containing heavier contents at the base.

iii. Combined Tuck-In and Hot Glue Closure

Combining both the tuck-in closure and use of hot glue serves to strengthen the carton.

You can find a carton with hot glue closure employed for the carton sides and bottom.

Consequently, the tuck-in technique finds use at the top making opening and closing of the carton easier.

Troubleshooting Carton Packaging Machine

While operating a cartoning machine, you may encounter several difficulties. Here are some of these issues and how you can solve them.

i. Aging Suckers

Solution: A replacement exercise is necessary.

ii. Limitation in the machine’s speed at the lowest manual setting.

Solution: Improve the design of the drugging board, allowing easier speed adjustment.

iii. At the carton magazine infeed you have flat blanks drawn.

Solution: A photoelectric sensor helps you detect and describe the kind of malfunctions you are experiencing with the equipment.

iv. Vacuum suction in an inconvenient location.

Solution: You should remove the vacuum system and reconfigure it appropriately.

v. Machine instability after extended high speed runs.

Solution: Employ servo systems to ensure that the machines work smoothly.

vi. The carton storage space not properly adjusted.

Solution: After stopping the machine, make any adjustments to the storage area to ensure appropriate carton delivery.

vii. Carton malfunction resulting from sucker tubing blockage or leakage of air.
