Authors(3) :-S. R. Sobhrajani, S. D. Fefar, B. M. Garala

All major industries create wealth but if there is one industry that plays a unique role by way of both creation of wealth through a wide range of manufacturing activities and also by way of preserving the wealth or value created by many, many other industries, it is packaging - primary as well as secondary. The paper deals with the selection of drive or means of actuation for design of special mechanism for secondary packaging of strips of snack packets in carton. The problem comes under the category of secondary packaging or end of line packaging where a mechanism has to be selected for stacking primarily packed strips of packets in carton. The selection of drive depends on different parameters and feasibility of it for particular task.
