Cartoning Machine for Snap-Lock BottomSnap-Lock Bottom Cartons, known as well the 1-2-3 Bottom Cartons, is a typical style of carton bottom that is designed for the purpose to load heavy objects and for facilitating the folding and tuck-in process.

Folding a Snap-Lock Bottom Carton Consists of three steps basically:

  • Fold the first-in closure panel (The large one without the tuck tab)
  • Fold the two dust flaps on the horizontal end
  • Fold the last-in closure panel, apply and push in the tuck tab around the center where the rest meet each other
