  • Surface finishing by means of glass-bead blasting technology.


Packaging machines for forming of paperboard blanks

The technical and practice-oriented concept of our erectors offers their wide application both as stand-alone machines, and machines, integrated into a packaging line.  Depending on the Customer's wishes and requirements our machines are designed for different formats and speeds thus showing high degree of variability. The ECONO-PAK carton erector forms flat carton blanks of various designs and carton qualities into boxes with or without lid. The formed carton box falls through the chute on the downstream conveyor system. The forming of the carton blanks is carried out by the machine thanks to forming tools for processing carton blanks.
