Case Styles Formed
Wexxar Bel machines can form a number of different case sizes, styles and ranges.
Center Special Slotted Container (CSSC)
The CSSC is especially strong because both the top and bottom have double the thickness and the inner flaps provide a level base for the product. The inner and outer flaps are cut to different lengths, and both pairs meet at the center of the box.
Half Slotted Container (HSC)
The HSC leaves the top uncovered, differing from regular RSC cases. All flaps have the same length, and the two outer flaps meet at the center of the box when erected. If a level bottom is required, a fill-in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps.
Overlap Slotted Container (FOL/CSO)
This style is especially resistant to rough handling and stacking with its added cushioning and level base. All flaps have the same length, and when closed, the outer flaps come within one inch of complete overlap (FOL). Depending on the ratio of length to width, the outer flaps overlap at random, up to full overlap (CSL).
Regular Slotted Container (RSC)
This is the most common box style due to its high efficiency and minimal waste. All flaps have the same length, and the two outer flaps meet at the center of the box when erected. If a level bottom is required, a fill-in pad can be placed between the two inner flaps.
Gap flap type cases are ideal for reducing corrugated costs for manufacturers. Depending on the product and case design, gaps can be larger or smaller. Typically glue sealing is used over tape sealing to ensure a strong seal.
