MG America, the U.S. subsidiary of MG2 of Bologna, Italy and a supplier of processing and packaging equipment, will introduce the cartoner to the North American market at PACK EXPO International.
With picking-arm enabled positive carton forming, MG America’s Cariba C2221 is suitable for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetics application. The unit is available either with a manual feeding station or a variety of automatic product feeders. In either configuration, the Cariba C221 is compatible with a broad range of common primary packaging formats, including blister packs, round/shaped glass and plastic bottles, jars, soft tubes, flow packs, sachets, and stick packs.
Changeover is fast, and based mainly on adjustments rather than replacements. Tuck-in and hot-melt closures are available, with a combination of the two providing tamper evidence. Printing options include emboss, inkjet and laser coding, and the unit comes equipped with integrated barcode-reading capabilities.
The Cariba C2221’s balcony-style design ensures easy cleaning and maintenance, as well as separation between electrical and mechanical sections. Its lowered carton magazine, full servo assisted motions, controlled adjustable transportation and coated guides combine to eliminate marking on components.
The Cariba C221 can be customized with a variety of additional features, including extended carton magazines, pre-folded leaflets and booklet dispensers, leaflet folding units (GUK), serialization-ready external modules, and remote connectivity.
