Guarantees success for e-commerce packs

Wepoba Wellpappenfabrik, part of the Panther Group, has installed more folder gluer capacity to satisfy the sustained demand from customers in the Internet mail-order retail business. This doubles the plant’s capacity in this sector to produce packaging with an automatic base, self-adhesive closure and tear tape.

The new gluer can produce a wide range of packs from small to large. Optionally, two self-adhesive strips and one tear tape can be applied in a single operation. This means the boxes fulfil two essential requirements – pre-glued bases and use of the first self-adhesive strip to close the lids which considerably reduces handling costs. The tear tape allows the customer to open the package conveniently and the second adhesive strip is used if the consumer returns the goods he or she ordered online. The machine’s technical features include straight line gluing and three, four or six-point gluing options. Various devices for fast, easy setup ensure a high level of production and workplace safety.
