- Sep 15, 2021-


2021 will be the fastest year of technological update and iteration. The new infrastructure blew the rallying call for new air outlets, opening a new round of urban upgrades, and promoting 5G, Internet of Things and artificial intelligence and other technologies to continue to mature.


Under this trend, the biggest impact is the traditional manufacturing industry. For this pillar industry, there is an urgent need to realize the landing application from concept to practice, and then to the transformation and upgrading to the direction of networking, digitization, and intelligence. In today's rapidly changing technology, if we want to keep up with the times and be at the forefront of society, we must inject "smart" into the industry as a booster.


For traditional enterprises, in order to achieve "intelligence", the process of "transformation from manual to robot" must be completed. Among them, industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, hardware, and auto parts need to use smart packaging machinery. As one of the more complex equipment, the automatic cartoning machine has developed into a highly automated equipment and has become a key equipment for product packaging in various industries.




Many people don’t know what to do with the automatic cartoning machine?




The difference between the horizontal cartoning machine and the vertical cartoning machine lies in the carton placement form when the product is loaded. The machine and equipment with the carton lying flat is called the horizontal cartoning machine, which is mainly used in bags and blocks. The materials are boxed. Usually what we call the automatic cartoning machine refers to the horizontal cartoning machine.


The feed of horizontal cartoning machine is generally divided into three entrances: carton entrance, material entrance and machine package entrance. The whole process from the machine package box feeding to the final packaging molding can be roughly divided into four stages: a guide rail is used to fix the carton and a push plate is used to open the carton. At the same time, there will be two forward-moving card positions from Raise the bottom, jam the side of the carton from the front and back, so that the box opens at a right angle and moves forward to the loading area. After filling in the filling area, the mechanism of the machine will fold the ears into the left and right guide rails, and then perform the closing action. The pre-closing mechanism will first bend the tongue of the box, and then a push plate pushes the lid to bend, so that the tongue is inserted into the box and the lock buckle is fastened. The closing action is a critical action, and the quality of completion has a lot to do with the structure of the carton and the accuracy of the machine adjustment.


The cartoning machine is a high-tech product integrating machine, electricity, gas and light. This product is suitable for various types and specifications of carton packaging machines such as facial masks, cosmetics, medicine, masks, hardware, food, toys, electronics and daily necessities. It integrates box opening, filling, bottom buckle, ear folding, inserts, and box sealing. As one.


The structure of the equipment is more humane, and it is more flexible to open the box for special materials. It can be used alone or combined with other equipment (such as weighing machine, filling machine, material sorting machine, cartoning machine, etc.) to form a complete assembly line to form a complete production line. The whole frame and the parts in contact with materials are all made of high-quality stainless steel and aluminum, and the surface has been polished. The appearance is beautiful and generous, sturdy and durable! This equipment can replace the workload of 6-8 workers.




The uniqueness of the vertical cartoning machine cannot be replaced by the horizontal cartoning machine; the application of the vertical cartoning machine is based on the complementarity of the horizontal cartoning machine; the promotion and application of the vertical cartoning machine is largely The test is the mature technology of the vertical cartoning machine.


First talk about the uniqueness of the vertical cartoning machine. The vertical cartoning machine adopts advanced cam segmentation mechanism to realize dynamic and static gap movement, and adopts turntable to realize process differentiation. There are twelve stations in total, box feeding, bottom sealing, loading, top sealing, and out of boxes are carried out in sequence. The opening and forming of the vertical cartoning machine is standing, which is very convenient for manual filling. After the machine is running, the upper opening of the opened box moves to the manual filling station, and the worker can easily put the items into the box. In, boxing is realized. For many manufacturers, the horizontal cartoning machine is familiar, and the horizontal cartoning machine is also widely used, but the horizontal cartoning machine cannot solve all the product boxing, such as scattered screws, special-shaped hardware accessories, Another example is car light bulbs, or liquid-packed products, and so on. For these products whose horizontal cartoning machine cannot push the material into the box, the vertical cartoning machine was born for these problems.


The entire process of the vertical cartoning machine from feeding the machine box to the final packaging can be roughly divided into four stages: box loading, opening, filling, and closing. The action of unloading the box is usually by a suction cup sucking a carton from the feeding port of the carton and going down to the main line of the carton. A guide rail is used to fix the carton and a push plate is used to open the carton. The forward-moving card bit rises from below, jams the side of the carton from the front and rear direction, so that the box opens at a right angle and moves forward to the loading area. After filling in the filling area, the mechanism of the machine will fold the ears into the left and right guide rails, and then perform the closing action. The mechanism before closing the lid will first bend the tongue of the box, and then a push plate pushes the lid to bend, so that the tongue is inserted into the box and locked. The closing action is a critical action, and the quality of completion has a lot to do with the structure of the carton and the accuracy of the machine adjustment.


The vertical cartoning machine integrates light, machine, electricity and gas, and is controlled by a computer. It is suitable for mechanical automatic boxing of plate-shaped and bottle-shaped articles such as medicines, foods, and health products. Automatically complete the processes of item delivery, manual folding and delivery, carton forming and delivery, loading items and manuals into the carton, and paper tongue sealing at both ends of the carton, and automatic rejection of unqualified products. It can be linked with the blister packaging machine to form a packaging line. According to its cartoning objects, it can be roughly divided into a plate-type automatic cartoning machine and a bottle-type automatic cartoning machine, both of which are roughly the same in technological process.





In all walks of life in the country, the development speed of the food industry is obvious to all. Behind the rapid development of the food industry, the silent contribution of food packaging machines is also inseparable. The widespread use of food packaging machines in my country has not only improved packaging efficiency, continuously improved the level of domestic packaging industrialization, and guaranteed packaging quality, but also played a significant role in optimizing workers' working conditions and saving employment costs. The automated operation of food packaging equipment is changing the mode of action in the packaging process, changing the processing methods of packaging containers and materials. The digital control packaging system can improve production efficiency and food packaging quality, effectively reduce the labor intensity of factory employees, and reduce energy and resource consumption.


The product of this equipment can reach the process of one-time box opening and forming, box filling and automatic box sealing. The glue output can be adjusted, the glue spraying effect is uniform, the spraying speed is fast, the operation is simple, and it can be compatible with different specifications of cartons.





Pharmaceutical manufacturers generally cannot do without the drug boxing process. Drug boxing is an indispensable process for drugs to enter the market. The medicinal cartoning machine is the machine that realizes this process. Equipment to improve packaging efficiency.


Compared with other cartoning machines, the medicinal cartoning machine has its special points:


1) Need to insert the drug insert;


2) The carton should be printed with the production date, product batch number, expiration date, etc. (such as the supervision code of special drugs);


3) Counting statistics for packaging (should comply with the count distribution requirements in Article 4703 of the "Drug GMP Certification Inspection and Evaluation Standards");


4) Check the quality of inner packaging drugs;


5) It can meet the requirements of batch/time change. For other cartoning machines, these special points do not have to be reached.


Different forms of medicinal cartoning machines:


1) According to the way that the packaged material enters the carton, it can be divided into horizontal and vertical. Among them, the model in which the packaged material is pushed into the carton in the horizontal direction is called the horizontal type, and the model in which the packaged material enters the carton in the vertical direction is called the vertical type.


2) According to the final carton sealing form, it can be divided into tongue type, adhesive type, mixed type, labeling, unfolding, self-locking, etc.


3) According to the shape of the packaged object, it can be divided into plate shape (such as blister packaging), bottle shape, tube shape, special shape, etc.


4) According to the specifications of the packaged material, it can be divided into single piece, double piece, multiple pieces, combined pieces (such as 1 antibiotic bottle powder injection + 1 ampoule water injection), etc.
