With the increasing demand for product packaging in enterprises, choosing a suitable boxing machine has become particularly important. As an important production equipment for packaging materials, boxing machines come in a variety of types and have their own characteristics. This article will introduce you to the current mainstream boxing machine classifications and their applications, helping you to fully understand the categories, characteristics, and applications of boxing machines.
Classification by Automation degree:
- Semi-automatic boxing machine
The semi-automatic boxing machine is the basic type of boxing machine, mainly used for small batch production. Its working principle is that the machine is responsible for automatically opening and closing the box, while human assistance is required to complete the relevant packaging process, such as placing the item to be boxed into the box. The advantages of using a semi-automatic boxing machine are that the price is relatively low compared to other types, with low operating costs and strong flexibility, suitable for different production scales, and ideal for small and medium batch production.
Applications of semi-automatic boxing machines: Small batch production, small in size, and diversified packaging specifications, such as cosmetics, appliances, stationery, and food.
- Fully automatic boxing machine
Generally, a fully automatic boxing machine needs to be connected to other packing equipment to work together. It can automatically open the box, load the material into the box, close the box, and finally transport it to the next machine. When running, the speed and efficiency of the fully automatic boxing machine are much faster than those of manual and semi-automatic boxing machines.
Applications of fully automatic boxing machines: Used for large-scale production, for fixed-sized objects, suitable for industrial production, such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, catering, electronics, and other industries.
Classification by Structural Characteristics:
- Vertical boxing machine
The vertical boxing machine is one of the most commonly used boxing machines, with the material inserting direction being vertical, either from top to bottom or from bottom to top. Its packaging process is mainly divided into four stages: box insertion,box opening, material loading, and box closing.
Applications of vertical boxing machines: Suitable for large-scale and continuous production requirements for the automotive, electronic, food, beverage, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries.
- Horizontal boxing machine
Different from the vertical boxing machine, the paper box of the horizontal boxing machine is laid down horizontally, and the product is pushed into the paper box from the side. This method requires that the product be arranged in an orderly manner and easy to push. Some products such as face masks, food, and daily necessities often use this boxing method.
Applications of horizontal boxing machines are widespread, including the food, pharmaceutical, chemical, electronic, and daily use industries. For example, it can be used for packaging biscuits, candy, chocolate, tablets, stationery, cosmetics, and other products. By using the horizontal boxing machine, production efficiency can be improved, product quality and appearance guaranteed, and costs and labor resources saved.
In this article, we have detailed the classification, working principles, and applications of four types of boxing machines. When choosing the most suitable boxing machine, it is necessary to consider multiple factors such as technical requirements, packaging product type, production capacity, and packaging speed.
