COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION OF PACKAGING NETS

after cartonboard has been through the printing & print finishing rocess it needs to be turned into containers

this can be automated:

1) accurate die is made

2) die is mounted into the die cutting machine

3) the cartonboard nets are trimmed on a power guillotine

4) test sheet is produced

5) printed cartonboard is fed into the die-cutting machine & stamped out

6) waste is directed away using ejector pins or rubbers
