What is the difference between slotting and die cutting of flex carton box printing machine?
The question seems very simple, as if everyone understands it. But for customers who are preparing to build a new carton factory, it is very difficult to choose the machine. They don't know the difference and what to choose.So, for this situation, I would like to share my views here:
--The slotting unit in carton flexographic box machine is the work of slotting corrugated board and pressing lines at the same time. The slotting size can be set in the slotting unit according to the size of the carton you want to make. In this way, the corrugated cardboard will be crimped and slotted in the slotting unit after printing. In this way, you can get a conventional carton, such as fruit box, furniture box, food outsourcing packing, etc. Slotting unit cannot do die cutting.
--The die-cutting unit in the carton flexo machine, also known as rotary die cutting, is the work of die-cutting corrugated board. Usually, wood die is used in the die-cutting unit to die-cut the printed paperboard. Wood die are customized according to carton drawings. Therefore, for an order used one wood die and it mainly produces irregular cartons, that is, special-shaped cartons. The common ones are gift boxes or punching holes in conventional cartons. Die cutting unit can complete the work of slotting.
Carton printing slotting die cutting machine has a very special advantage, that is, the printing group, slotting group and die-cutting group can be combined freely, because there are different habits and configuration requirements, some customers choose printing + slotting; Some customers choose printing + die cutting; Some customers choose printing + slotting + die cutting.

What Is A Carton Folder Gluer Machine?
Carton Folder Gluer Machines are an integral part of the packaging industry. They are utilised by companies all over the world to produce high quality packaging quickly and efficiently. This packaging can be in a number of different materials including corrugated paper and cardboard, which can be pre-branded if desired to ensure maximum exposure for the brand during the delivery phase of its operations.
As the packaging sector is such a large one, it is unsurprising that there are many different folder-gluer machines available to suit different company and packaging needs. Common equipment available includes automatic corrugated paper box pasting machines, automatic paper box pasting machines, semi-automatic box pasting machines and fully automatic box window pasting machines. This equipment can be set to allow many different size boxes to be made, depending on the particular product being sold and the packaging requirements for it.
Folder-glue machines offer several advantages. As well as being suitable for producing a wide range of box sizes, they can also operate at high speed, ensuring an efficient production process which allows products to be packaged up and distributed quickly. High production yields as well as high quality outputs also mean that the machines are great value for money. The machines are easy to operate, with paper feeders ensuring that paper is always fed into the system correctly to guarantee productivity. These machines are also built with high-yield use in mind meaning that they are extremely durable too.
How to extend the life of Box stitching machine?
Carton factories often complain that during the operation of the box stitching machine,flat wire is prone to quality defects such as cracks, rust spots, peeling, and bending.In fact, as long as these three steps are done well, the problem can be avoided.
1. Choosing copper-plated flat wire can increase the life of the equipment
The quality of flat yarn mainly depends on the properties of raw materials and production processes.If the flat wire is unqualified, quality failures such as coating shedding, unsmooth wire feeding, broken nails, and poor nail saw molding specifications will easily occur during use.The annealing degree of the iron flat wire is about 400 degrees and the time is only 4 hours, while the annealing temperature of the copper-plated flat wire is about 900 degrees and the time is 14 hours. Its hardness is about 2 times smaller than the former, so it can be used. Better reduce the wear of the head components.Therefore, from the perspective of improving the life of the equipment, the choice of copper-plated flat wire is of certain significance.
2. Purchasing flexible flat wires can reduce cracks
There are generally two types of coatings on the surface of flat wires: copper plating and zinc plating. From the perspective of quality and technology, flat wires are not allowed to have quality defects such as cracks, rust spots, peeling, bending, or uneven thickness.
Therefore, when purchasing, pay attention to choosing flat wires with good coating, good rigidity and elasticity. The uniformity of thickness and width can be tested with vernier calipers.
3. The storage warehouse is dry and ventilated to avoid rust
The wire material of the flat wire is iron wire. Although the surface has a certain anti-oxidation and anti-rust coating, it is easy to rust if it is not stored properly.Therefore, the unused flat wire after opening the box should be stored in a sealed and moisture-proof manner.
To Pay attention to these three points in the production process of the carton nail box equipment, which can greatly extend the life of the box stitching machine and free you from cracks, rust, and peeling of flat wires.
Single Facer – Smart
The Smart single facer is a high speed, quick flute change, cassette machine, housed in a very heavy duty, rigid cast iron frame. The massive, low-vibration construction, and low center of gravity ensure the smoothest running on all flute types. The finely adjustable pressure roll is vertically off-set from the corrugating rolls to further reduce vibrations.
Roll change is accomplished through either side of the machine in as little as 10 minutes utilizing a motorized cart. All hydraulics have been eliminated from the single facer and have been engineered into the cart, resulting in a simple, reliable machine.
The differential design of the corrugating rolls greatly reduces the flute forming labyrinth, dramatically reducing paper tension and allowing optimum flute formation. The corrugating rolls are peripherally heated for virtually instantaneous heating across the surface, preventing condensate problems, and eliminating the need for siphon pipes (The live steam is cascaded first through the upper corrugating roll then to the lower corrugating roll, followed by its flow into the pre-conditioner roll where the condensate is removed). The corrugating rolls are supplied either in chrome or tungsten coated according to customer preference and flute type.
Perfect bond is maintained via the beltless extended nip system which provides a very large wrap around the upper, larger diameter corrugating roll. In addition, positive pressure holds the medium to the upper corrugating roll, providing optimal heat transfer into the medium. The pressure roll gap is automatically adjusted for various board grades and production speeds. The result is maximum production flexibility allowing all grades of paper, from lightest to the heaviest to be run simply and effectively via the automatic engagement of the pressure roll. This concept virtually eliminates pressure lines.
The Smart design incorporates a perfectly aligned 90-degree angle between the applicator roll and the flute tips. The unit continuously monitors this process, assuring the precise quantity of adhesive is applied to the flute tips.
High speed glue dam control guarantees adhesive is applied precisely to the outer edges of the medium. For cleaning and maintenance the entire glue unit is pivoted away from the main unit at the push of a button, where an automatic wash-up cycle is initiated.
