The MGX Carton Former: Designed Specifically for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses


Handling inflation, a slower economy, and recruiting quality talent amongst a labor shortage are all challenges many small and medium-sized businesses face in 2023. As business leaders face the issues of how to increase efficiency and reduce costs among these challenges, automated packaging solutions are something to consider.

Carton forming machines are one part of automated packaging solutions that can help your small business increase efficiency and reduce the time-consuming labor associated with forming and filling cartons by hand.


Benefits of cartoning machines

Automating the packaging process comes with many benefits. Cartoning machines can:

  • Help your business save money. Cartoning equipment requires minimal human intervention, allowing your employees to focus on other essential operations in your manufacturing process.
  • Allow you to possibly double or even triple your current output, increasing efficiency and reducing your labor costs.
  • Increase your quality. Although machines are not 100% error-free, they can significantly reduce your packaging error rate and help you achieve high standards consistently.

You might be thinking, “All those benefits sound great, but how much will it cost me?” Good news — increasing throughput and efficiency through automation doesn’t have to “break the bank!”

The MGX Carton Former is a competitively priced carton forming solution that can increase consistency and production capacity without the substantial investment that many believe is necessary.
