What are the Packaging Machines Available for Yogurt Cups in Carton Sleeve?

Depending on the form of the sleeve the customer is going to use for the packaging,

a Wrap-Around Sleever

or Pre-Glued Sleever (Pre-Glued Sleeve Cartoner)

can either be the choice for carton sleeving. Just as the indicates, a Wrap-Around Sleever is for the packaging automation of flat blank sleeves,

while a Pre-Glued Sleever is just like a horizontal end-load cartoner that inserts the grouped multipack from the side end into the pre-glued sleeve.

In the following content, we’d explain how Wrap-Around Sleever or Pre-Glued Sleever are applied to the carton sleeve packaging of yogurt cup multipack.


Wrap-Around Sleever for Multipack of Yogurt Cups

When installed for the sleeve packaging of the multipack, the Wrap-Around Sleever is usually joined by an infeed system or grouping system to arrange the coming yogurt cups into the expected form of multipack, according to the number of layers, rows and side-packs wanted.

Infeed and Grouping of Yogurt Cups

Infeed and gourping of yogurt cupsIn the case of 1x3x2 multipack (single row, 3 side-packs, 2 layers), yogurt cups coming from upstream machinery will go through two infeed conveyors which are located at separate vertical levels and get collated when moving forward to get introduced into the Sleever




Placing Sleeve on the Grouped Multipack

The Sleever, upon the introduction of the grouped multipack of yogurt cups, will capture a sleeve blank from the carton hopper and place it on the multipack.

Wrap the Sleeve and Closure with Adhesive Hot Melt Glue

Through a series of steel guides, the blank sleeve is wrapped and slid around the multipack, and then sealed by hot-melt glue on the bottom.


Pre-Glued Sleever for Multipack of Yogurt Cups

A Pre-Glued Sleever is just like a cartoning machine that erects the carton blanks, however, in this case, it is a pre-glued sleeve rather than carton blanks. Pre-glued sleeve is erected, opned, and then secured on the lug chain of the Pre-Glued Sleever (Cartoner) after which the grouped yogurt cups are inserted into the sleeve.
