The Folding and Gluing Process

So how does folding and gluing work? The process of folding and gluing involves folding the blank sheet along pre-creased lines and applying the adhesive that will hold the product together. Folding and gluing can be performed on a wide range of materials including cardboard, plastics and paper.

Most folded and glued items are produced from die cut sheets. As a die-cut and creased blank sheet passes through the folder-gluer machine, a selection of specially positioned guides, rotary hooks and other devices fold its panels to the required position while adhesive systems apply cold glue or hot-melt adhesive to appropriate locations.

The folded and glued piece will then be place under pressure for the adhesive to cure as it is transferred to delivery. Highly sophisticated control systems track the sheet during the process and, in conjunction with quality assurance equipment, will eject any product that does not conform to pre-determined criteria.

The folding and gluing process may sound like a simple one but it is essential that is is performed by industry experts like those at Larkin Industries to ensure a professional finish.
