Abstract (en)

The pre-fabricated, folded flat blanks are oriented in matching positions on their way to the packaging device (36). The blanks are oriented individually, one after the other, by delivering them to an intermediate storage area (22) to form a stack (24), where they are oriented into position before being delivered to the packaging device. Blanks are supplied individually, one after the other, to the intermediate storage area and/or to the packaging device from this area. The orienting device guides the lateral edges of the blanks and extends in the blank length and/or width direction, or at right angles to this direction. An Independent claim is also included for the device used to orient the blanks.
