Cartoning machines

A highly compact line of cartoning machines from flat blanks even with non-parallelepiped shape and external or internal closure. Tested for small-medium rigid or bagged products. 

 

MIXER series cartoning/case packing machines

The Plus Points of the MIXER line are: COMPACTNESS, MODULARITY and FLEXIBILITY to adapt perfectly to the type of product being processed, even in more standard versions.

IThe operating cycle, studied innovatively and in line with the mounting arrangement, simplifies automatic product feeding systems and enables the blanks magazine to be positioned according to the installation space, thus reducing costs and machine footprint, as shown in the figure:

Using new mechanical and electronic concepts, the MIXER series offers a wide range of cartoning solutions with various types or formation of wraparound carton and cover trays from flat blanks.

The series uses various types of blanks in different size ranges and variable operating speeds depending on the products being processed and carton dimensions. Size changeover time can be considerably reduced by installing several product feeding units on the same machine.
