High speed horizontal cartoner 100 / 200 cartons / minute. Servo-driven cartoner with automated size changeover.
Operating principle :
The products to be packaged arriving from the upstream machine are automatically deposited in the trays of the cartoner’s infeed conveyor.
At the same time, the cartons are taken one by one from a large capacity magazine by means of a rotating hypocycloidal motion distributor with positive opening by suction cups and counter suction cups.
The opened cartons are deposited between the cleats of a continuously advancing transport chain which conveys them to the filling area. A series of mechanically operated push-pieces ensure the progressive introduction of the products into the boxes.
As an option, it can be installed an upper group accompanying the “thousand legs” to maintain the products during the push.
The case is then automatically closed and removed from the machine.
