What is Automatic Cartoning Machine?
Posted: Jul 17, 2022
Automatic Cartoning machine is a kind of packaging machinery, including automatic packing machine, medicinal packing machine, etc. The automatic cartoning machine automatically loads medicine bottles, medicine boards, ointments, etc. and instructions into the folding carton, and completes the box-closing action. Some fully functionalautomatic cartoning machines also have additional functions, such as sealing labels or heat shrinkable wrapping.
The feed of the automatic cartoning machine is generally divided into three entrances: the inlet of the manual, the inlet of the medicine bottle and the inlet of the machine package box. The whole process from the feeding of the machine package box to the final packaging and forming can be roughly divided into four stages: the carton is fixed by a guide rail card slot and the carton is opened with a push plate. At the same time, two card slots that can be moved forward will rise from below, jamming the side of the carton from the front to the rear, causing the box to open at right angles and move forward to the filling area. After filling the filling area, the mechanism of the machine will fold the ears into the left and right rails, and then perform the closing action. Before closing the lid, the mechanism will first bend the tongue of the carton, and then there is a push plate to push the lid to bend, so that the tongue is inserted into the box and the lock buckle is fastened. The closing action is a key action, and the quality of completion has a lot to do with the structure of the carton and the accuracy of the machine adjustment.
According to the structure of the machine, the cartoning machine can be divided into: vertical cartoning machine and horizontal cartoning machine. Generally speaking, vertical cartoning machines have a relatively fast packaging speed, but the scope of packaging is relatively small. They are generally only for single products such as medicine boards, while horizontal cartoning machines can pack a variety of products, such as soap, medicines, food, hardware, auto parts, etc.
The automatic cartoning machine also has additional functions such as sealing labels or heat shrinkable wrapping. The feed of the automatic cartoning machine is generally divided into three entrances: the manual inlet, the medicine bottle inlet and the machine package box inlet. The whole process from the machine package box feeding to the final packaging and forming can be roughly divided into four stages: lower box, open, fill, and close the lid. The action of dropping the box is usually by a suction cup that draws a carton from the inlet of the carton and descends to the main line of cartoning. The carton is fixed by a guide rail card position and the carton is opened with a push plate. After the filling area is filled, the tongue is inserted into the box and the lock buckle is fastened.
