Cartoners (carton erectors) are designed to construct cartons and containers from flat blanks made of flexible paper board or similar materials. Vacuum is used extensively to handle the paper board in various stages of the production process. Initially, flat cartons are stacked in a magazine or rack and held in place by rails or retaining ledges. Typically, cartons are removed from the magazine with the aid of suction cups and vacuum pumps. This is done in a reciprocal motion or a rotary motion.
