Platinum Packaging Inc.: Friction feeding for gift box blanks

Contract packager Platinum Packaging employs nearly 50 Longford friction feeders that deliver gift box blanks from a magazine onto a lugged conveyor for downstream shrink wrapping. Feeders can also be set up to deliver calendars to a plow so that another downstream feeder can insert a paperboard card into the calendar. Dong so helps provide rigidity to the calendar after it's shrink-wrapped.
