With the advancement in technology, companies who are increasing in growth and development have now seen the potential of having to upgrade their systems by replacing their folders & gluers. In many cases, there is a lot of cost that is already spent on the product before it reaches the folding/gluing department such as printing, foil stamping, prepress, warehousing, diecutting, and staging. There will be a hurried pace in the department in case any of these areas will be delayed and it will surely cost a lot of money which will only add to the investment that the business has to make. Having the right carton folder gluer machine will help you save a lot of your money since it will definitely decrease the production time that the product will take when done manually, it provides faster set up time, it will increase the overall speed of the production, and it will also give better flexibility with the type of products that it is able to handle.
Making a lot of inquiries will lead you to the right company that will be able to provide you with a competent folder gluer machine.
What are the materials being utilized in making the folder and gluer to make it durable enough to last long?
There are products that would require high-volume folding and gluing such as folding cartons and you need a machine that is built solidly for this so that it can encompass the labor that needs to be done. The machine’s foundation would have to be its framework. A solid framework will be the one to support the side plates that is why it is more important than having a thick side plate. It would be much better for your machine to have more cross members. The material of choice for these cross members would have to be the thick wall structural steel square tubing. The frame should be lowered to the floor so that the machine will produce less vibration because the center of gravity is low. If your machine will have less vibration, you can be assured that all of the bolts and knots will stay tight. To add to this, you must not purchase machines that are being placed together by castings and angle irons. When the machine is being used, there will be more vibration if you are going to utilize these materials since they are not very durable.
What are the safety features that you should take note of in purchasing a folder gluer machine?
The operation should be controlled by the operator that is why there are essential features that the machine should have to avoid any damages later on and these are belts and pinch points that are guarded, a warning chime that will mark the start of every operation, a two press start system that will allow the operator to buy more time in taking care of the clearing of the belts, and a lockout stop button that enables the operator to have full control of the entire operation.
