Facial tissue manufacturer.

Challenge

To integrate fully automated cartoner with upstream folding equipment. The solution needed to be capable of handling cube cartons and regular-style facial tissue packs, as well as improving operational efficiency.

Solution

Mpac’s facial tissue packing machine balanced the need to boost throughput, while keeping cube carton damage to a minimum.

Installation of a customised secondary packaging solution provided the required combination of speed, compact footprint, flexibility and large carton handling capabilities. Designed specifically for facial tissue applications, it ensured the folded stacks of tissues could be received smoothly from the converting machine, via two servo-driven infeed systems.

Plus, with a pre-sized carton magazine for quick changeovers, downtime was kept to a minimum.

A high standard of on-shelf presentation was maintained thanks to intelligent packaging features, which are designed to avoid dents or scratches to the cartons and retain shape integrity – benefits which are essential for these visible consumer products.
