While purchase cost is important, consider the following when reviewing various suppliers and cartoning machine specifications for your project. 

The lowest priced cartoner usually DOES NOT produce the lowest cost per unit to package the product.
A major consideration of the cartoner purchase is of course cost.
But the real cost is the total cost to package the product.
These components include the costs associated with the cartoner long after the purchase.

Considerations in total overall costs to package the product include:

RELIABILITY- The machine should run day in and day out with minimal if any issues.

PRODUCTION OUTPUT- Along with consistent reliability, the cartoner should produce high quality product at rated speeds with minimal rejects.

MINIMAL MAINTENANCE AND OPERATOR ADJUSTMENTS- Cartoners should run with high reliability and produce quality product without tweaking, adjusting or banging with a hammer.  You should forget you have one until you are reminded by the amount of finished product pumping out the door.

SPEED OR CARTONS PER MINUTE-The higher costs associated with quality components and reliable design considerations pays off big time, resulting in increased speeds and thus increased output per shift, per week, per month, etc.

DURABILITY-Make sure the cartoner is robust and will stand the test of time.
