Eight tips for selecting
cartoning equipment
Keep these tips in mind when purchasing cartoning equipment.
1. Know thyself. Choose cartoning equipment based on how it works in your specific plant, with your compressed air system, and with your blanks.

2. Consider the nature of the product when choosing either vertical or horizontal equipment. The product will dictate the type of cartoning machine needed. For example, if the product is free flowing (granular in nature like detergent powder or loose pieces like boxes of cough drops), you may be able to focus mainly on vertical-style cartoning equipment. However, for products that can load horizontally or vertically, horizontal equipment is often better. Most cartoning machines are horizontal loaders. Generally, they perform with more flexibility at a lower cost.

3. Determine the most productive speed. First determine if the operation will be on line or off line. For on-line speed, calculate the maximum rate possible to make the product and divide it by the number of products per carton. Then factor in “surge capability”: the potential to increase the rate via new processes or technologies. For off-line speed, consider the daily, weekly, or monthly shipping quotas. Make sure to use realistic numbers for days per week and “true” hours per day to calculate required cartons per minute.
