Hi, we currently receive our carteon flat packed and then make them up (the bottom) using one long strip across the length and 4 across the width, 2 being to seal the ends against pest ingress. Product is food contact plastic packaging which is placed in unsealed liners before being placed in a carton. The top is then tape sealed with one strip across the length and 3 across the width, 2 being to seal the ends against pest ingress.
We are looking at purchasing a carton erector which will only tape a strip across the length underneath.
What I am wondering is does anyone have any experience of packing food contact packaging using carton erectors? Is one strip sufficient? I realise it depends on the weight of the product & ours varies. Have you had any complaints about pest ingress?
Any help or opinions would be gratefully received.
