What is a Flexo Folder Gluer & How Does It Work?
If you’re not quite as familiar with the machines as we are, it can be tricky to know exactly what they do. With training and education as a key component of our service offerings, we work with our customers to educate them on how a Flexo Folder Gluer works as a cardboard box making machine.
First, the corrugated sheets that have already been scored are fed into the Flexo Folder Gluer. The blank corrugated sheets are then fed into the machine one at a time using belts and vacuums to hold the sheets square in place before they enter the print units.
Then, the sheets are printed with simple or complex graphics before being pulled through the die cut section and the scorer-slotter section to be slotted with flaps. This is where it is trimmed for the final shape of the box.
The final joint is glued, and the blank is folded in the folder section of the machine. It is then counted and stacked in the counter ejector. Then the process begins all over again with the next box!
