Cardboard Box Manufacture

Processes used to manufacture corrugated boxes

Ever wondered how your corrugated boxes are manufactured? Well, there are in fact a number of differing ways in which packaging can be produced, depending on the application, intended use, industry, chosen style and much more besides.

The following are the main (but not all) ways in which packaging is manufactured at GWP.

Die cutting (Flat bed & Rotary)

GWP Packaging utilise both traditional flat bed and rotary die cutting techniques when producing your corrugated packaging, usually for complex shapes and layouts.

Rotary die-cutting is effectively the use of a cylindrical die (i.e. cutting tool). The cutting of the material takes place as the corrugated board passes through the press (usually at a very high speed) whilst the tool rotates with it, cutting against an anvil.

This is in contrast to traditional die cutting where a flat cutting tool / die is pressed repeatedly onto the corrugated board.

Manufacturing corrugated boxes in this manner provides a wealth of benefits, including quick setup, accurate registration, in line printing (rotary method only) and is exceptionally cost effective for medium to high volume runs.

Case making (manufacture of corrugated cases)

GWP Packaging also run a state of the art case making machine, allowing us to produce standard case designs such as 0201 glued containers cost effectively on medium to large runs.

In one pass this machine will print, crease, slot, fold and glue corrugated boards into high quality boxes. It has computer set up for highly cost-effective changeover between each new order, making this an extremely popular method of corrugated packaging manufacture.

Crash-lock assembly & multi point gluing

Thanks to investment in a multi point gluing and folding machine, GWP Packaging is also able to cost-effectively produce crash lock boxes in both low and high volumes.

Whilst cardboard box manufacture of this type can take slightly longer to setup and run, the cost savings in terms of assembly times for your packing operatives can by very significant.

Pre-glued crash-lock containers are available in runs from as low as 200 sq. metres.

Supplied flat, they can be quickly and easily assembled into the finished box / carton with very little folding. This ensures a large number of crash lock boxes can be assembled quickly, consistently and reliably at your factory or warehouse, reducing both time and the associated costs for high volume applications.

So whilst this method of corrugated packaging manufacture may be slightly more expensive, these additional costs are quickly offset in time and cost savings on assembly and handling times.

Hand finishing & complementary features

Sometimes, the best method of corrugated packaging manufacture requires elements of hand assembly and finishing. Whilst often time and labour intensive, manufacturing cardboard boxes in this manner can offer a number of benefits.

For example, it can guarantee a level of quality that automatic processes cannot always achieve. A visual check by GWP’s highly skilled and trained staff during this type of process also ensures that all of your packaging products reach the high standards required.

This method of manufacture also allows the addition of labels, foam inserts and other supplementary products to be included.
