Robust boxes for heavy products
The folding carton with automatic base is a special type of folding carton with a tuck-in flap, the base of which is particularly strong and closes automatically when erected. It is therefore used primarily for products that require a robust base solution due to their weight, as well as for mass-produced goods that are packaged particularly quickly and in large quantities.
Stability for many industries
The glued bottom flaps make the boxes with automatic bottom suitable for a wide range of applications - especially for large and heavy printed packaging.
The advantages of folding boxes with automatic bottom
Structure and operation of automatic bottoms
The automatic base closes automatically when the boxes are erected. This works because the flaps are already folded and spot-glued together after printing. It is therefore sufficient to apply slight pressure to the sides of the folding box in order to erect it. The bottom flaps hook together all by themselves and thus also directly hold the folding box in shape.
Features of automatic bottoms
- can be erected very quickly by hand ("lightning floor")
- best suited for mechanical erection
- more robust and load bearing than tuck-in flaps and tuck-in shelves
In our assortment you can find two versions of folding boxes with automatic bottom. The distinguishing feature is the different positioning of their flaps:
The most important functions of folding boxes
Packaging and labels fulfil a range of functions. While the primary function relates to the safety of the goods, the others are more aimed at optimizing processes, creating transparency and providing buying impulses. The most important functions at a glance:
With its six cardboard walls, folding packaging provides a reliable barrier against scratch damage and impact, as well as against external influences such as dust, dirt and UV rays.
Storage, transport and presentation
Folding boxes simplify many things. Thanks to their stackable format, for example, they ensure order during transport and storage. Likewise, sales shelves with folding cartons are particularly quick and easy to stock.
As packaging that can be printed over its entire surface, folding cartons hold plenty of space for important and useful product information. In addition to the mandatory labels, there is also enough space for useful application tips.
Whether with catchy slogans, the logo, eye-catching designs or high-quality finishes, packaging is a valuable ambassador for the brand and, in the best case, encourages people to buy. Our folding cartons have everything you need in terms of design.
Folding boxes with automatic bottom made to measure and request
Hardly any other type of packaging offers as much creative potential as folding cartons. With our online configurator, you can exploit this potential to the full: specify the format for your folding boxes with automatic base down to the millimetre and choose from a wide range of cardboard types and finishes. All that's left is the print data and production can start.
Regardless of whether sustainability, the printed image or product protection is your priority, you will find the right type of board in our range:
- Recycled, natural and grass-based cardboard
- bright white cardboard (coated on both sides)
- thick cardboard (high grammage & thickness)
- colourful cardboard (brown, light brown, black)
The grammage and material thickness vary depending on the choice of material. Cardboard with thicknesses from 0.315 to 0.6 millimetres and grammages from 215 to 500 grams per square meter are available.
Free Format choice
Tailor-made simply fits best - this also applies to folding cartons. That's why we give you free rein in choosing the box format. The minimum and maximum dimensions at a glance:
- Insertion flap: 8 to 25 mm
Note: All dimensions refer to the inside dimension of the boxes and should be about two millimetres more than the corresponding product dimensions.
Packaging ideally attracts attention and arouses interest. Visual and haptic stimuli play a central role in this. That's why you'll find a variety of finishes that impress with style in our online configurator:
- Protective coating: glossy, matte, and optionally with recess for subsequent printing
- protective laminate: glossy, matt or soft touch
- transparent viewing window & form punching
- tactile warning triangles & braille
Other finishes are available upon request:
- Hot foil stamping: copper, silver or gold
- UV coating: full surface, in high gloss
Always the right printing process
Each printing technology has special advantages - and we want to pass these on to our customers - with the choice between different printing processes.
Offset, flexographic or gravure printing, for example, impress with their particularly high-resolution print image and relatively low costs for large print runs.
For smaller order volumes, on the other hand, digital printing saves costs. Another advantage is the digital transfer of print data: Changing motifs, codes, texts and numbering can be printed on the packaging within a series.
