Folding Carton

Discover a range of highly competitive equipment tailored to the needs of packaging manufacturers in the folded cardboard industry.

The great versatility of folding carton means that it can be used to package a wide variety of products. From everyday food, cleaning or pharmacy products, to the most sophisticated cosmetic and perfumery products, including items such as toys, footwear, small appliances, and clothing or auto parts, among others, they are packaged in cardboard boxes or boxes.

A classification can be made of the different types of paste used to manufacture the boxes, following a criterion of fiber origin and the manufacturing process used. Thus, according to the type of fiber used, it can be classified into fibers of virgin origin and of recycled origin, and according to the manufacturing process, these can be classified into: cardboard, kraft, folding and recycled material.

Virgin Fibers.

· Cardboard. Obtained through a chemical process and subsequent bleaching.

· Kraft: Obtained through a chemical process using sulfate.

· Folding: Obtained by grinding the wood and separating the cellulose.

Recycled Fibers.

· Recycled or “gray” material. Obtained from magazines, newspapers, packaging, etc.

The type of fiber influences the properties of the cardboard. This is due to the size of the fibers, greater in the case of fibers of virgin origin and smaller in the case of recycled fibers. The smaller size of the recycled fibers is given by the manufacturing process itself, where there is an initial crushing of the raw material, which produces this shortening. Thus, it can be pointed out that the properties of virgin fibers compared to recycled fibers are of greater rigidity and less water absorption. Indicate that the use of varnishes on the cardboard is very common. The varnish guarantees the material finish and dates it with special properties, we can highlight the following types of varnish in this regard:

· Protective varnishes for printing.

· Anti-humidity varnishes.

· Anti-grease varnishes.

· Metallic.

· Laminated.

· Waxes.

Son distintos los modelos de estuche que se encuentran en el mercado, la mayoría de ellos recogidos dentro de la normativa ECMA (European Carton Makers Association). Se puede hacer una clasificación según criterios de diseño en:

· Estuches con abertura por ambos extremo y el cuerpo cerrado por una solapa encolada.

· Estuches con apertura por el centro.

· Estuches para líquidos.

· Multipacks

· Bandejas.

A la hora de seleccionar un estuche tan importante como el modelo, es la forma del producto a envasar y el sistema de llenado que queramos emplear y por tanto por el empleo de estuchadoras automáticas, semiautomática o bien de un estuchado manual.
