There are different types of raw materials for cartons that are used in the semi-automatic cartoning machine.

The material used varies according to the products being packaged. The different types of cartons that can be used in the semi-automatic cartoners include;

Rigid cartons; the Rigid cartons are more substantial and therefore offer more protection to the packaged products.

They are mainly used for high-value products.

Foldable cartons; these cartons help minimize both storage space as well as transportation costs.

They come in various shapes and sizes; as such, you can choose and/or customize one to suit your needs.

Corrugated cartons; these types of cartons are assembled by sticking together two arched flute pads. They come in varying shapes and sizes. They are also cost-effective.

Shoulder carton; This type of carton utilizes two different raw materials. The top and bottom are Rigid cartons, while the middle uses the shoulder carton.

Customized cartons; these types of the carton are entirely dependent on the consumers’ needs. They can be created in any shape, size, and color according to the customers’ preferences.

Mailer’s carton. This type of carton is suitable for packaging products that are small in size.

Sliding carton; The sliding carton is made up of separate pieces. It has the inner box and the exterior sleeve.

Telescope carton; This types of carton consist of two parts. It has a cover and a base.

Parts Of Semi-automatic Cartoning Machine

The semi-automatic cartoner machine has primarily four parts. These parts are;

Carton magazine; the magazine contains blank cartons that are to be folded into boxes.

Conveyor belt; the conveyor is essential as it transports the carton through the various packaging stages.

Folding system; the folding design is responsible for bending and forming carton boxes depending on the parameters set.

A starwheel; is essentially a part that is responsible for the opening and closing of the flaps.

There are other additional parts whose presence may vary from manufacturer to the next.

It may also vary depending on the type of semi-automatic cartooning machine you select.

These different structural features include;

An alarm system; most semi-automatic cartooning machines have an alarm system to alert on different needs.

An alarm for assembled boxes that remain closed. There can also be an alarm system for when carton levels are low in the magazine

A pickup arm, some semi-automatic, has components that use suction force to pick up and transfer boxes from one station to another.

A handwheel; the handwheel together with a reference ruler are used when changing the format of the semi-automatic cartooning machine

A sealing device; such devices use varying methods to seal the boxes, such as hot melted glue.

Safety guards. The standard guards are made of electro-welded wire mesh.

They prevent the carton from falling over, ensuring the integrity of the machine’s operation and the operating personnel’s safety.

How Semi-automatic Cartoning Machine Work

The first step involves the position of the carton by the safety guard rails.

After that, the mechanism responsible for pushing, which is generated by the push plate, opens the carton.

Besides, the bottom of the carton is then joined to a vacuum suction cup that is propelled by its pneumatic system.

This procedure is carried out beginning with the back to the front to ensure that the carton is upright when it gets to the feeding bay.

With the semi-automatic cartooning machine, feeding the products into the carton is done mechanically.

The personnel ensures that the products are placed accordingly in the carton.

After the product has been placed into the carton, the conveyor belt transports the loaded carton into the folding area.

This is carried out by the steel railings. The railings fold both the right and left flaps at the same time using a rotating motion.

Remember, the aim of the folding is to close the box.

Again, the semi-automatic cartooning machine has a cam which that is fixed to a motor that propels the plate to carry out the folding process on both sides.

Also, the box is then moved to the next stage. The next stage involves sealing the box.

This is a very critical stage as it ensures the safety of the products stored inside the carton boxes. The carton flaps are sealed at the front.

Additionally, the push plate then initializes the push, which causes the lid to bend, thereby securing the lock.

After the box has been sealed, the semi-automatic cartooning machine then uses its label to control the adhesive.

It is also responsible for closing all ends completely and sealing the box.

Finally, the machine then inspects the sealed carton to ensure that all the requirements have been met. The machine will be able to detect boxes that have not been properly sealed or boxes that have not been loaded with the products.
