Looking to pack several sachets into one carton? Find the solution here

The cartoning machine is a frequently used equipment in the pharmaceutical packaging industry. Its flexibility is a major advantage, as it can accommodate various packaging types, including various carton sizes, single or multiple units in a carton, and different closure methods like tuck-in or hot melt.
Evaluating a cartoning machine’s pros and cons involves two aspects: firstly, whether it can be adjusted quickly and easily to package various items. Our latest cartoning machine uses a servo system to adjust each position, intelligently improving changeover time. Secondly, production efficiency is crucial, as high labor costs have made replacing human workers with machines necessary. However, high-speed machines often lack flexibility, while low-speed machines can compromise production capacity. To choose the best cartoning machine, a pharmaceutical factory must comprehensively evaluate flexibility and speed to find the balance point that suits their needs.
The cartoning machine, in this instance, is an intermittent type, which means that it has a lower speed but higher flexibility than the continuous type. The machine packages sachets by stacking them on each other and pushing them into the carton. This is made possible by two sachet-carrying magazines, each connected to a rotary pick-up device. The first pick-up device picks up several sachets and places them on the bucket chain of the cartoning machine, while the second pick-up device stacks more sachets on top. The loaded bucket chain then moves forward intermittently until the sachets are pushed into the carton. In this scenario, a hot melt is utilized, compared to the tuck-in closure; the hot melt has better protection; however, once it is torn open and used, the carton cannot be closed again. On the other hand, the tuck-in closure allows consumers to open and close the carton repeatedly.
