New technology for the packaging of soft tubes and other fragile items has been released on the market from machine manufacturers to simplify and speed up the packing process of manufacturing toiletries and cosmetics.
This new type of cartoning machinery comes from automatic cartoning machine manufacturers and makes the production and packaging of toiletries and cosmetics safer, quicker and provides more quality control processes around the manufacturing process.
Safety features such as weighing and sorting ensure only grade A quality items are passed through the production process for packaging by the horizontal cartoning machine. The whole process is fully automated within the end to end automatic carton packing machine process.
Cartoner machines should not be confused with cardboard packaging machines as cartoners use a lighter weight material termed cartonboard or lightweight cardboard. This is usually a semi-flexible paper material 250µ to 1,000µ in thickness and can be finished with gloss coatings, uv varnishes or printed designs. They should not be confused with cardboard or corrugated cardboard cases which are made from rigid corrugated board and are larger, often containing a number of cartons for transit.
Automatic cartoner machines are therefore generally used for the store presentation packing and not for the bulk shipping outer packaging.
Cartoning machinery can take a range of generally pre cut cartonboard to feed contents and seal the cartonboard containers within an automated packing line process.
