Rigid packaging


Well-known member
Due to covid and drop in business of books we wish to divert to rigid / hard boxes. We are looking for small quantities of 500-5000 a lot, with production of 500 a day. We will be newbies. Are there any ready dieline resources? What are the software and equipment required. We have a motorized gluing machine, Polar guillotine, rotary board cutter, cover thermal laminator. Punching dies and printing will be outsourced.

Hi! It is a common problem for beginners. They are undecided and do not know where to start. For sure, everything related to industry and mass production must be mechanized. To make 500 boxes a day, you don't need the most wow packing machine. An average one at an affordable price is enough. I also worked for a while in the industrial field, and there we used the packing machines from Used Process and Packaging Equipment For Sale at Kitmondo – the Used Industrial Equipment Marketplace.These manifested themselves very well throughout working with them. They worked quickly and without interruption at the most inopportune moment.

We are considering a v grooving machine (flat bed type because they can groove mdf and don't curl the board). There are 2 types to my knowledge.
Type 1- Board is placed on table manually . Table moves through grooving blades
Type 2- belts and rollers carry the board through a straight/ flat path through grooving tools.
Anyone having knowledge or experience about the advantages and disadvantages of both? Help requested. Thanks
