Six Corner Tray
Opening on the large side
The six-corner tray or six-point box is always used when packing has to be very fast but the box still needs to be opened from the large side.
The six-point boxes are called this way because they are glued at 6 points with glue nozzles. Alternatively, there is also the 4-point box. This is basically the same, but without a lid, and is therefore only glued at 4 points with nozzle glue.
Six-point boxes are therefore very popular in fast food restaurants for hamburgers, sandwiches, sushi or other snacks as well as in pastry shops for cakes, doughnuts or similar pastries.
Six Corner Trays are often used for:
hamburgers, sandwiches, snacks
Since the set-up process in the folding carton gluer is more complex for six-point cartons than for standard carton types, they are less for small quantities but rather for larger carton quantities from approx. 5,000 pieces.
The boxes are quite easy to set up. Simply pull the two side walls left and right upwards and the bottom container is formed and the box can be filled. Then the two side walls of the lid are also folded upwards so that the lid forms. Now the six-point box can be closed.
The six-point boxes can be printed on all 6 outer walls and on the 3 outer walls of the bottom container, which are covered by lids when closed.
In the design, it must be ensured that the two side walls on the base and the two side walls on the lid are interrupted by grooves at an angle of 45°. It is therefore recommended to avoid text blocks.
The proportions of the six-point boxes are somewhat limited due to the way they are produced. Simply let us know your desired dimensions and we will check them for feasibility. We will then tell you the feasible proportions or recommend an alternative packaging solution.
The upper side of the 6-point-box offers a nice possibility for a foil window, so that one can look at the contents from above through the packaging.
We would be happy to discuss these and many other possibilities, also for finishing the boxes, with you by telephone and make you individually adapted white samples.
