In carton manufacturing, a series of sequential process is being carried out. This includes
Paper board making: The first step in the carton manufacturing process is the making of the paperboards. In this process, wooden chips are first softened by adding chemicals. The softened wooden chips are then made in to a pulp form. The mixture of pulp and water is then allowed to go through a machine. The pulp that is obtained is then sent through several layers of filtration to remove the unwanted material from the pulp. Water and chlorine are added during this screening process. The pulp is then made to attain a form of a mat of wooden fiber by removing the liquid content from the wooden pulp. This fiber is then dried to get the required solid paper board.
Coating with waterproof materials: The dried paper board is then subjected to a process of adding water proof coating by passing it between rollers that coats the molten polyethylene on to the paper board. This process is repeated for a number of times until a thick film of polyethylene gets created on top of the paperboard. This film will act as the waterproofing layer.
Printing and cutting: In this process, the coated paperboard is then allowed to pass through a machine that contains a combination of printing rollers and die cutting tool.
There are various types in which cartons can be customized some of them are as follow:
Folding cartons: It is a type of packaging suitable for food, pharmaceuticals, hardware, and many other types of products. Folding cartons provide advantages in product distribution, protection, preservation and marketing. Folding cartons are usually combined into a tube at the manufacturer and shipped flat to the packager. Tray styles have a solid bottom and are often shipped as flat blanks and assembled by the packager.
Printed folding cartons: It is a type of packaging in which some thing is printed on folding cartons, it can be image, text, logo, etc. to attract the people and give the packaging an extra look. Printed Cartons can be ofSingle, two colour, tri colour, multicolor duplex printing. These Printed Cartons are produced as per customer's varied specifications and designs. Most of the food and oil manufacturing companies prefer these boxes.
Custom folding cartons : Custom packaging is made according to client demand that is best suited to them. While designing the custom package company works with the clients in a collaborative setting to utilize both talents and craft and the knowledge and to know how the client possess about their products.
Corrugated Cartons: Corrugated Cartons is made largely of recycled paper and most commonly by comprising three components: an outer and inner 'liner', and a 'corrugating medium', the 'fluting', which is glued between the liners It is this sandwich-type construction that gives corrugated Cartons its excellent rigidity and structural strength as well as its unique cushioning characteristics. It is widely used for shipping containers and corrugated box packaging.
