Comparing Cartoning Equipment Brands

Cartoning machines are a vital part of packaging operations that fold cartons out of cardboard and other materials and fill them with a product before it is brought to market. Cartoners are used for dairy and milk-substitutes, cosmetics, medicine and more.

In general, they work by expanding a folded carton, filling it with a loose or prepackaged item and applying glue to seal flaps over a filled carton. High Performance Packaging technicians are familiar with operating a variety of brands:
