Box Plant Basics - Other Box Plant Equipment

Online Course Description

To convert a piece of corrugated board that is produced on a corrugator into a box, the sheet of board must be cut, slotted, and scored into a "box blank" (the precursor to a box). Many boxes are also printed, folded, and glued before they are shipped to the customer, and some boxes are stitched, taped, or labeled, or have specialty forms and materials inserted, before they leave the box plant. This module discusses the basic operation of several converting and finishing machines that can be found in box plants, including printer-slotters, folder-gluers, stitchers, tapers, laminators, litho-laminators, presses, bundlers, and palletizers.
