Corrugated fiberboard is a material consisting of a fluted corrugated sheet and one or two flat linerboards. It is made on "flute lamination machines" or "corrugators" and is used for making cardboard boxes. The corrugated medium sheet and the linerboard(s) are made of kraft containerboard, a paperboard material usually over 0.01 inches (0.25 mm) thick. Corrugated fiberboard is sometimes called corrugated cardboard, although cardboard might be any heavy paper-pulp based board.
Nowadays, corrugated cardboard is mostly used for the packaging and transportation of fragile or valuable items to better ensure the integrity of goods.
See Wikipedia for more details.
While corrugated cardboard offers a multitude of benefits, the manufacturing and customization processes used to create specific shapes and designs have traditionally relied on manual labor and specialized cutting tools. However, the advent of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting equipment has revolutionized the way corrugated cardboard is cut, providing manufacturers with unparalleled precision, efficiency, and versatility.
Corrugated board classification
1.There are different levels according to the number of corrugated grooves, including:
AB type: two layers of corrugated, sparse grooves
AE type: If it is composed of two layers of corrugations, but the grooves are one sparse and one dense.
Type A: a layer of corrugated, sparse grooves
Type B: a layer of corrugated, dense grooves
Type E: It is composed of denser ripples.
2. Classified by layer
According to the classification of the number of layers of corrugated cardboard, it is divided into single-layer and multi-layer corrugated cardboard.
Multi-layer corrugated cardboard is more stable for packaging and transportation.
3. Classification by corrugated groove shape
Because the corrugated shape plays a decisive role in the compressive strength of corrugated cardboard, the corrugated shape is divided into three types: V, U, and UV according to the size of the groove arc. The specific characteristics are as follows:

Introduction to CNC Cutting Equipment:
CNC cutting equipment, short for Computer Numerical Control cutting equipment, is a modern and sophisticated technology used in various industries, including manufacturing and fabrication. It involves the use of a computer-controlled machine, which interprets digital designs or CAD (Computer-Aided Design) files and translates them into precise cutting instructions. The CNC machine's cutting head, guided by the computer, moves with utmost accuracy to execute intricate cuts and shapes on the material.
How CNC Cutting Enhances Corrugated Cardboard Processing:
a. Precision and Accuracy: Traditional manual cutting methods might be prone to errors and inaccuracies, leading to wastage of materials and compromising the final product's quality. CNC cutting equipment, on the other hand, offers unrivaled precision, ensuring that each cut is consistent and perfectly matches the intended design.
b. Complex Designs: Corrugated cardboard is often used for unique packaging and displays, requiring intricate and complex shapes. CNC cutting equipment excels at handling these designs, allowing for the creation of innovative and customized packaging solutions.
c. Increased Efficiency: CNC cutting significantly reduces production time, as it automates the cutting process. This leads to improved productivity, quicker turnaround times, and a more streamlined production workflow.
d. Waste Reduction: The precise nature of CNC cutting reduces material wastage, optimizing the use of corrugated cardboard sheets and contributing to cost savings.
e. Rapid Prototyping: In product development and packaging design, quick prototyping is crucial to test concepts and make adjustments. CNC cutting equipment enables rapid prototyping of various cardboard designs, expediting the innovation process.
Corrugated cardboard, with its exceptional strength and versatility, has become an indispensable material in the packaging industry. The integration of CNC cutting equipment into the manufacturing process brings a host of advantages, such as unmatched precision, increased efficiency, waste reduction, and the ability to create intricate designs. As technology continues to evolve, CNC cutting equipment will play an increasingly significant role in enhancing corrugated cardboard processing and pushing the boundaries of packaging innovation.
