Choosing expensive is not necessarily good, and what is right for you is the most important. So what factors should you pay attention to when buying a cartoning machine? The following content will help you analyze what kind of performance cartoning machine, and what kind of service the supplier provides is best for you.
1. The design and structure of the machine are strong and durable, which can better resist external forces and vibrations and adapt to the harsh production environment. Therefore, when purchasing, make sure that the cartoner supplier uses high quality parts. Ask him what type of parts to use and the name of the manufacturer. Some suppliers will provide a standard spare parts list if requested by the customer.
2. Supplier's experience When selecting equipment, consider the supplier's machine design and application experience. Make sure that the vendor takes into account all of your requirements, from space and budget constraints, to packaging format and speed. For example, if you want the machine to be produced three times a day, you should not buy a cartoner that can only do one job a day. Also, make sure the supplier understands the carton manufacturing and knows what materials are needed for its machine production. To find out if a supplier has these experiences, you can ask them questions, check out the resources, watch videos of similar apps he offers, and more.
3. Credit and reliability buyers should also consider the reputation of the supplier in the industry and whether his financial situation is stable. To ensure that the machine is installed, the supplier can provide support and services for many years to come.
4. Customize and choose a supplier that can customize the cartoning machine according to your requirements, and make subtle changes to the design to meet your real needs. The so-called customization, when it is easy, may only need to change the size, or replace an electronic component, and even redesign an important part of the machine when it is complicated. Suppliers should be able to manufacture machines and have all the necessary experience and customization to provide a complete solution.
5, flexibility Whether now or in the future, packaging needs may change. So when choosing a cartoner, this can't be ignored. If you anticipate that the size of the carton or product will change in the future, make sure that the machine you buy can be modified, or that it can handle different sizes of cartons. In addition, you have to figure out if the speed of the carton you want to buy can meet your current and future speed needs.
6, the size of the machine In addition, when selecting a supplier, it depends on whether he can provide a variety of models of the cartoning machine, so that you can easily find the model that suits your packaging production line. If you buy a large front-end product handling equipment, you can buy a small-sized cartoner. In short, look at a few more machines, compare them, and then choose the cartoner that best fits your factory size.
7. It can be integrated with upstream and downstream equipment. The cartoning machine is generally located in the middle of the production line. Make sure that the cartoning machine you buy can connect and communicate with upstream and downstream equipment. Because a production line also includes a variety of other machines, such as weighing machines, metal detectors, upstream bagging machines and wrappers, as well as downstream cartoners and palletizers. If you only buy one cartoner, make sure your supplier knows how to integrate the production line.
8. Delivery time Today's customers require fast delivery and, more importantly, they require the supplier to deliver the machine within the agreed deadline. You can request a supplier's production plan to ensure all production steps, including design, procurement, assembly, testing, wiring, and programming.
9. Technical Service Support After the machine is installed in the factory, the supplier shall continue to provide technical support. By knowing how many service technicians a supplier has, you can know how fast his service feedback is. Choose a supplier that can provide 24-hour service. If you and the supplier are in different areas, make sure you are within his service coverage area. Can the supplier's service technician drive to your factory? How long does it take? Ask your supplier if you have a HelpDesk, can you call for technical questions or discuss future performance issues with the device. In the supply of spare parts, ensure that the supplier has a 24-hour spare parts warehouse, and to find out the source of these accessories. In general, customers need to train operators, maintenance and electrical technology after buying a new machine. Therefore, choose a supplier that can provide technical training services.
