Semi Automatic Cartoner

Our market leading Semi Automatic Cartoner is the choice of many companies large and small looking for the ultimate mix of flexibility and automation. The carton packing machine takes care of erecting, folding and sealing the carton leaving the operator to handle the introduction of the product into the box. Adjusted easily for a wide range of carton sizes and due to the manual loading of the product, the semi automatic cartoning machine is simple and reliable.

    The Semi Automatic Cartoner is a simple to use machine. Flat cartons are loaded in the machine hopper.  Products are delivered to the load station on the integral conveyor directly from the upstream equipment such as a bagger, flow wrapper or manual assembly process. As the products are delivered to the load station, the cartoning machine automatically, on demand, selects and erects the flat cartons and prepares them for the operator.

    An operator slides the products from the conveyor and into the open cartons or boxes. The carton packing machine then folds the end flaps on the carton and applies glue to seal the cartons before ejecting them from the end of the machine.

    The Semi Automatic End Load Cartoner can be operated by one or two persons at up to 80 packs per minute. Most machines installed run comfortably at 50-60 packs per minute with one operator. For higher speeds look at our Fully Automatic End Load Cartoner.
