Difference between horizontal and vertical cartoning machines
Cartoners are used in many different industries such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, food, chemicals and many others and for different types of products. The choice of whether to buy a horizontal or vertical cartoning machine depends on many factors.
A vertical cartoning machine is generally chosen when the machine works “stand alone”, i.e. when the machine is not placed in line with other upstream or downstream machines. Product insertion is usually done manually. After the carton has been formed by the machine, the operator manually introduces the product into the carton. In the pharmaceutical sector there is often an automatic unit for inserting the leaflet, which is done before the operator inserts the product. The carton is then automatically closed in the closing station. The operator also checks that there are always enough cartons and/or leaflets in the respective magazines. Vertical cartoning is sometimes preferred for products that are difficult to handle automatically, perhaps those products that are difficult to insert into the carton.
The horizontal cartoning machine fits into a complete production and packaging line and has a higher speed than the vertical cartoner because it works fully automatically. In the pharmaceutical sector, for example, it can be set up to automatically insert different types of products, such as blisters, vials, bottles, syringes or other medical devices. The main role of the operator on this type of machine is to check that the magazines are always replenished to avoid machine’s stop (blister magazine, leaflet magazine, carton magazine, etc.).
