Sustainable packaging is an important pillar of policy for many producers and retailers. Unfortunately, there is no 'one size fits all' solution for the ultimate sustainable packaging. Its development differs per product, company and branch. However, small trays and punnets made of sturdy, (food-safe) cardboard can form a solution for many different industries for the sustainable packaging, transport and presentation of products.
For the mechanical forming and gluing of small trays or punnets of solid and corrugated board, Boix Europe offers two entry-level tray formers.
Boix MCT1/V punnet machine for punnets and trays made of solid and corrugated cardboard
The MCT1/V punnet machine is an automatic and adjustable 2-headed tray former, which can set up 2 different sizes of trays simultaneously. The compact packaging machine is mechanically driven by 1 motor that drives 2 adjustable heads with the aid of connecting rods. This allows the machine to simultaneously set up 2 different sizes of trays and punnets of corrugated board and solid board with a capacity up to 1.800 to 3.500 trays per hour (per head). No qualified technician is required for changing formats.
The machine is an entry-level model from the assortment of Boix Europe tray formers. The delivery time is approximately 30 to 60 days. The small cardboard trays and punnets that can be set up with tray former are suitable for packaging vegetables, fruit, prepacked bread, snacks, potato products and meat products.
Boix Q-1800 tray forming machine for small Plaform and C1 trays of corrugated board
The Q-1800 tray forming machine is the other entry model from the Boix range. This packaging machine is suitable for setting up small Plaform and C1 trays of corrugated cardboard. The machine has 8 speeds and a tray production between 400 and 1.800 trays per hour. In 5 minutes it is possible to change the format for forming and gluing cardboard blanks with other dimensions. The Q-1800 is a very compact machine and therefore extremely suitable for the fruit, vegetable and non-food sector. Also the Q-1800 has a delivery time of approximately 30 to 60 days.
