This is one of our last ones, if not our last one for a while. We will be back to regular reviews and news after this. Thank you for your interest in this series! We wanted to go hard like we do with all GN content, and so we tried to explore the entire supply chain.

Epic video, drama, tears, crushing machinery....who needs "Endgame" with all this action???

Your title is misleading, this isn't how cardboard is made, its how it's assembled from raw carboard into layered cardboard before it's made into packaging.

20$ for a box! 🤔Now I can make fortune of those boxes above my closet 🤑

I work at a box factory here in America and let me tell you, that factory is WAY nicer than mine. However our factory actually finishes orders as well.

You are a tech channel, but your talking about cardboard. I didn't say stop.

Now we just need to ask manufacters to let us opt for the brown box to get the product $19 cheaper.

What happens if they load the machines with 1 ton rolls of bacon?

Packaging engineer here I design and spec boxes, clamshells and foam for a living. If someone is paying $20 per box they are getting scammed unless they are not doing some super fancy printing. Even adding the cost of inserts it should not be half that.

Reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Bart's class took a field trip to the cardboard box company. Interesting Video, left a like, still a boring topic.

So what you're saying is that we may be paying $20-30+ premium on hardware..... from the packaging alone.

When will we be able to see a finished box, sir?
tihzho (1 month ago)
Sorry, but who told you gpu boxes costs upwards of $20? How large is the box? I worked in China for over 10 years in manufacturing. I worked for a time for an American company and for an example one product used tri-wall printed cardboard boxes (600mm x 500mm) comprising a inner and outer box with a cost of less than $7.

By the way they're making corrugated board not "card board"... and it looks like it's C flute .

I didn't expect a gaming channel to produce some of the best “how it's made videos". Keep it up!
HaulTruckDriver (1 month ago)
maybe on your next remote factory tours or something of that nature, hire a voice actor for the video. im sorry but your voice is so dull and boring, made it almost hard to watch.

Good video...except one VERY important piece of info. Making those rolls of paper is a MUCH harder process! You should tour an International Paper Containerboard mill, like the one I work at in Pensacola, where we make these little rolls of liner board they buy in these factories. I say little, because our machine spits out 200,000 feet of linerboard over 30' wide in less than 1 hour, so OUR rolls are 31' wide and 13' tall, give or take. The process of taking trees and pulping them into this linerboard is much more involved and really puts into perspective exactly how much goes into making 1 box. Edit...We also have a fluff machine which makes the "fluff" in diapers and feminine products. All of which comes from the same raw material as cardboard...kinda weird that women and babies use cardboard for absorbing! Lol

First, they take the dinglepop and they smooth it out with a bunch of schleem. The schleem is then repurposed for later batches.

56 boxes of bottles of beer on the wall / oh we dont assemble them here, that's done in flint michigan / any popped eyeballs / that's just a studio where they film krusty the clown & other non-box related programs / you'll have to speak up, i'm wearing a towel

Dude wtf! You havet to learn the diffrence between cardboard and corugatedpaper! Belive me...since i make corugatedpaper for a living. Which is what your showing. What next...visiting a ps4 factory saying that this is how a itx Computer is made! DUMBASS!

In Afghanistan, shit would get shipped around in basically giant cardboard boxes that we called "tri walls"...it was one layer, the "flute" as you called it, another layer, another "flute" and an outer layer with plastic lids on both sides to (very) loosely close them up. I was waiting to get on an Osprey at a FOB called Edinburgh...they had to unload one of these tri walls. They make the ramp level so they could push it out the back on the rollers built into the ramp (of which I stepped on and BUSTED my ASS once on Camp Leatherneck...) but the tri wall was too high and kept hitting the back of the bird. They couldn't quite get it back far enough so I guess someone onboard said "fuck it, then", lowered the ramp just enough so it'd clear and shoved the thing out the back...it fell a few feet and landed on its side. Then they proceeded to ROLL THE THING!! I was doubled over laughing my ass off. It was absolutely hilarious. These things were probably 5'x5'x4' and I have, to this day, no idea what was in it but watching this giant cardboard cube full of ten thousand dollar hammers and shit roll along the sandy Afghani flightline will forever be emblazoned in my memory. I was amazed how strong some stupid ass cardboard could be.

I worked in a box factory for a few years. We didn't make our own cardboard stock though, just taking the stock and running them through the machines to cut and print for various customers. It was called 'The Great Little Box Company'. :P
2:47 I thought a girl was screaming next door. But as I watched that part repeatedly I reckon it was background noise. as in that long tunnel has a machine screaming like a woman.

A single box shipped with a GPU can cost upwards of US$20 !! I had no idea, I would have thought $1 or $2 ... now I'm very glad I always keep the packaging for resale a few years down the road after I no longer need components! Super interesting. Keep 'em coming!
codycast (1 month ago)
Why would cooling it for a few less seconds Chang the price ? Edit. Lol. I mean “change” the price. But funny pun I guess.
kn00tcn (1 month ago)
maybe it adds up due to how much goes through the machine, how much total time, the electricity used, etc i think also the strength is part of the price even if there was no change in cost (meaning, price increase for 'better')

I work in a large corrugated (cardboard) Co. We have much bigger companies in the USA then the one in your video. I know you showcased this one because Coolermaster used them but Id say most graphics card boxes prolly cost less then a dollar. Im assuming the $20 figure would be for the stuffing and manuals inside. They also will get discounts on the more boxes they order.

This should have been released on April first. Then it would be a meta video. People would be confused if it was a convoluted joke, or a serious report on the trip that was made. Missed opportunity. <3

Simpsons did it first!!!!😌
Joonas Pastila (1 month ago)
Wow, hopefully this motivates people to recycle, because as we see here, cardboard actually isn't just some random thing, but carefully manifactured product. And it can be efficiently recycled and made into new cardboard and paper, which reduces the rate we have have to cut down trees, as well as adds an pleasing element of efficiency which just makes the whole engineering process beautiful.

Silly question, but what did the factory smell like? (i noticed some cardboard really smells bad, especially when wet)

I used to work in a cardboard factory. The technology was older and thus the process was a bit different than what i've seen here. It had a corrugater whcih made the sheets and then several cutting and printing machines using basic ink designs, nothing fancy like a GPU box. Though many orders consisted of just large blank sheets which may have gone to other factories for advanced printing. I worked on the strapping machine which strapped together the piles of finished product for storage or shipping.

This use to be my job. Pity you didn't show the printing on the card. That's where the fun happens.

This reminds me of season 5 episode 12 of The Simpsons where Bart's class visits a box factory. This was less hilarious but equally entertaining.

So that's what a new corrugater looks like? The one in my old plant was old as hell. Too bad the plant you were in didn't have a converting section. The presses are more impressive IMO, especially when the speeds really get cranked up.
