To convert a piece of corrugated fiberboard into a box, the board must be cut, slotted, and scored into a box blank, the precursor to a box. Many boxes are also printed, folded, and glued before they are shipped to the customer. And some boxes are stitched, taped, or labeled or have specialty forms and materials inserted before they leave the box plant. Some common pieces of equipment that can be found at a box plant are listed next. It is important to keep in mind that every box plant is different. A very small box plant can have a single flexo-folder-gluer, while a very large box plant can have dozens of different machines.
