Corrugated Cartons

Almost everything you buy gets to market in a corrugated carton often referred to by people outside of the industry as the cardboard carton or brown box. This “brown box” is the backbone of the corrugated industry. At Box Makers, you get a team of knowledgeable people continuously focused on the customers’ needs, not only thinking “about the box” but also “outside the box”. The beauty of corrugated at Box Makers is that if we can visualize it we can make it for you. We can make virtually any carton style that you can imagine. Our boxes have unique attributes to protect, contain and deliver your valuable products to market! Our corrugated packaging is sold to a variety of customers in the textile, food, glass cartons, chemical, appliances, and plastics industries. Here is a preview of just a few of the designs that can meet your unique packaging needs.

Regular slotted cartons

 All flaps have the same length, and the two outer flaps (normally the lengthwise flaps) are one- half the carton’s width, so that they meet at the center of the box when folded. If the product requires a flat, even bottom surface, or the protection of two full layers, a fill- in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps. This is highly efficient design for many applications. There is very little manufacturing waste. The RSC can be used for most products and is the most common box style.

 product1

Wrap around blank

 A wrap-around blank is formed into a box by folding it tightly around a rigid product. The positioning of the product, folding and sealing are performed by automatic equipment. The finished box is essentially an RSC, turned on its side so that the bottom and top are unbroken. The joint, however, is not formed until the final closure.

 product2

Five Panel Folder (FPF) or Harness Style Five Panel Folder

 A single cut and scored piece features a fifth panel used as the closing flap, completely covering a side panel. The closed box has several layers of combined board on each end, providing stacking strength and protection for long articles of small diameter which might be damaged, or damage the box, if pushed through the ends.

 product3

Center Special Slotted Carton (CSSC)

 Inner and outer flaps are cut to different lengths. Both pairs of flaps meet at the center of the box. The style is especially strong because both the top and bottom have double the thickness of corrugated board. The inner flaps, with no gap, provide a level base for the product. A variation of this box is the Side Special Slotted Carton-SSS. All pairs of flaps meet, but not at the center of the box.

 product4

Center Special Overlap Slotted Carton (CSO)

 All flaps have the same length (one-half the length of the box). The length of the box can be no more than twice its width. When closed, the inner flaps meet at the center of the box, providing a level base and full top protection. Depending on the ratio of length to width, the outer flaps overlap at random, up to full overlap.

Design style carton with cover

 product6

Full Telescope Design Style Carton (FTD)

The two-piece box is made from two scored and slotted blanks (rays).

 product7

Overlap Slotted Carton (OSC)

All flaps have the same length. The outer flaps overlap by one or more. The box is easily closed, usually with staples driven through the overlap area. This style is used when the length of the box is considerably greater than the width, resulting in a long gap between the inner flaps. The sealed overlap helps to keep the outer flaps from pulling apart.

 product8

Half Slotted Carton (HSC)

Similar to the RSC but without one set of flaps.

 product9

Full Overlap Slotted Carton (FOL)

All flaps are the same length (approximately the width of the box). When closed, the outer flaps come within one inch of complete overlap. The style is especially resistant to rough handling. Stacked on its bottom panel, the overlapping flaps provide added cushioning. Stacked on its side, the extra thickness provides added stacking strength.

 product10

Snap or 1-2-3- Bottom Carton

 The Four flaps that form the bottom panel are die cut. To set up, the user folds the largest bottom panel first, then the two end panels. When the remaining bottom panel is folded and pressure is applied near the center, the flap “snaps” into the slot created by the other panels. The style is convenient for small-volume shippers who do not have automatic set-up equipment. Because the bottom is not fully sealed, it may not be suitable for heavy products or concentrated loads. This style can be provided in “tuck-top” top flaps, RSC style or other configurations.

 product11

Integral Divider Carton

This is a self divided box. It is an RSC but with a pre-glued internal divider.

 product12

Interlocking Double Cover Carton (IC)

The style offers the same ease of packing provided by double-cover box, with the assurance that the covers will not separate from the body. This is achieved by interlocking covers and tubes, then sealing with adhesives or banding. This feature is advantageous for moving large of heavy products such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, water heaters, vending machines and some hazardous materials.

 product13

Octagonal DC

 Similar to Double Cover Carton but octagonal in shape optimizing stacking strength and preventing bulge associated with packing foldable products.
