The aim of a solid board converter is to sell boxes to his customers. He purchases his solid board in sheets or in rolls from the paper mill. He then converts them to high-value-added boxes.

The different kinds of boxes.

For example, the solid board converters work for the industries of food-processing, pharmaceutical laboratories, capital goods, wines and spirits, marketing services. This leads to a very wide product range, where the appearance of the final product is very important.

The box may comply with the ECMA standards, or it may be a customer’s specific box that has undergone an extensive CAD design.

Among the main box categories, following are a few examples:

  • Straight flap boxes
  • Reverse tuck-end boxes
  • Auto-bottom boxes with tuck-end
  • Trays with lock
  • Display boxes with tuck-in flaps
  • Pillow packs with end flap completely covered
  • … and many others!
