Small: for packaging rolls into cartons
The intermittent motion cartoning machine 501 is a very small, compact automatic machine. When connected to a single rewinding machine, it is a compact and efficient production unit which can be easily controlled by a single operator. The machine operates only when a roll arrives. It loads the roll into a carton, indexes it to the next position and then stops until a new roll arrives. From here on the cycle repeats itself. The machine is designed for very narrow spaces that do not allow for a conventional cartoning machine. The machine uses single size cartons, folded and pre-glued on the long side with 4 flap closures. Once set to process a certain size of carton, the machine cannot be changed to different sized cartons any more.
