Universal model for food and non-food sectors

As a universal model the horizontal cartoner HK 2 convinces with its flexibility and reliability through processes such as erecting, filling and sealing of pre-glued folding boxes with a performance of up to 160 cycles/min.

Operating Principle HK 2

During the operational and synchronisation process the stable or flexible products are conveyed parallel to the folding box conveyor by a flexible bucket conveyor and then get smoothly inserted through circumferential pushers.

The filled folding boxes are closed through hot-melt application system or tuck-in, coded and controlled in accordance with customer’s specification. Several control elements provide a trouble-free operation.



Customer Benefit
  • naturally smart construction with one main drive servo motor together with mechanical coupling of additional motions by cardan shafts.
  • safe insertion and constant malfunction monitoring with sensitive overload-declutch of the pushers.
  • leak-proof welded base frame for highest hygienic demands.
  • ensured reproducibility of all machine settings by editable storage of all value settings.
  • clearly structured operation panel with self-explanatory display and visualisation of the functional sequence.
Folding-Box Closing-System

The flaps of the filled folding boxes are closed either through hot-melt application or tuck-in and could be coded optionally.

Design and Equipment

The DIENST HK 2 is designed as a universal system for various performance requirements. All structural components such as frame and shafts are made of stainless steel to meet optimal hygiene standards.

The main drive is moved by servo technologies.

Additional motions are coupled mechanically by cardan shafts.

For easy operator’s accessibility the product transfer takes place on one entire level.

  • base frame made of stainless steel.
  • all used components are of extremely low-maintenance.
  • operation by colour touch screen.
  • product related infeed system such as flap feeder, star feeder or conveyor infeed system.
  • integrated monitoring with continuous diagnosis is part of DIENST standard equipment.
