California Packaging Systems: Horizontal cartoner
The FC-Series horizontal cartoner operates at speeds to 300 cpm in its continuous-motion configuration and 60 cpm in intermittent motion. It’s equipped with a CMF-2 rotary feeder that includes rotating and reciprocating suction cups for the removal of various shapes of cartons.
System accepts multiple shaped cartons and can quickly change from one carton configuration to another. Two motions make positive removal of cartons requiring a pre-breaking action from the magazine. Uses standard infeed mechanisms such as centrifugal feeders to deliver parts to the cartoner in a smooth continuous fashion. Offered with the system are bar-code laser and color mark printers and scanners. The system is also supplied with glue applicators to secure major carton flaps.
