Packaging items such as flat cartons that have not yet been erected or filled require an additional system to move them in a fashion that will properly present them to the printer – a “transport system”. Primary product cartons are usually delivered in shipping cases to the location where they will be used. They are packed tightly in flat form into such cases. In order to efficiently print such batches of flat cartons (or individually cut labels, or sleeves, or seed envelopes) these items need to be separated individually from a stack of multiple items, spaced consistently, moved passed the printer, and then be re-collected into an easy to handle stack. That series of steps is the function of a transport system.
Different types of packaging components require differing methods of separation and transport in order to hold each individual piece in proper alignment as it is removed from its stack and transported by the printer so that the printed image is correctly located and aligned with the package art work. A properly matched pair of packaging component and transport system will yield a high throughput of single items that have been properly separated from the original stack, held and aligned during transport, so as to give properly printed results ready to move to the next step of the packaging process.
