What Are The Things You Need To Look For In A Carton Folder Gluer Machine?
Replacing of folders and gluers are now being emphasized in companies who are concentrating in their future development and growth since this is made possible with the proliferation of technology. There are areas that a product needs to go through in the folding/gluing department and these includes prepress, diecutting, printing, warehousing, foil stamping, and staging, which cost a lot of investment before it even reaches the department. 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. The right folder gluer machine will be able to make up the time it takes for all of these areas to be completed that is why it will surely make an incredible result when it comes to the increase in overall production speed, better flexibility, and faster set up time.
There are a few questions that you need to take note of in finding the right manufacturer for your carton folder gluer machine.
Will the folder and gluer last for a long time?
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. Take note that the framework of the machine is considered its foundation. Having a solid framework is more important than having a thick side plate since it will be the one supporting the side plates. If your machine have more cross members, it would be much better. It would be great if you can look for the thick wall structural steel-square tubing that will be utilized as materials for these cross members. The frame should also be located in the lower part of the floor so that it will have a lower center of gravity which will provide less vibration. If your machine will have less vibration, you can be assured that all of the bolts and knots will stay tight. In addition to this, you should be wary of machines that are being put together with the use of 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?
There are a lot of features that you should take note of in looking for the right folder gluer machine for your company and these includes belts and pinch points that are guarded, a two press start system that allows the operator some time to move clear belts before he will start the machine, a warning chime to sound as soon as the operator will press the start button, and a lockout button to ensure that the operator will have full control of the machine.
