Basic model for food and non-food sectors

As a basic model the horizontal cartoner HK 1 automates processes such as erecting, filling and sealing of pre-glued folding boxes with a maximum performance of 80 cycles/min.

Operating Principles HK 1

During the operational and synchronisation process the stable or flexible products are transported by a flexible bucket conveyor parallel to the folding box system and then get smoothly inserted through insertion applications.

The filled folding boxes are closed and coded in accordance with customer’s specifications. Several control elements provide a trouble-free operation.



Customer Benefit
  • design easy to understand through a frequency controlled drive motor as main drive and mechanical coupling further movements through drive shaft.
  • secure in feed function with sensitive disengaging of the pushers in case of overload.
  • clear user interface with intuitive display and visualization of functional processes.
  • settings reproducible through counting devices and scales.
Folding-Box Closing-System

The flaps of the filled folding boxes are sealed through hot-melt application systems and optionally coded.

Design and Equipment

The Dienst HK 1 is designed extremely short and compact as standard system for low to medium performance requirements. The system is made of high quality stainless steel and wear-resistant materials.

The product is transported on one level with the best access for the operator.

The format adjustment is done through spindles and position indicators or clamp lever and scales. Because of this a simple adjustment to the packaged product is guaranteed.
