Horizontal Sleeve/Cartoner Offers Speed and Versatility
The new horizontal sleeve/cartoner from PMI Cartoning (pmicartoning.com) allows packaging lines to run multiple sized side-load sleeves or end-load cartons.
The HS1-12 horizontal cartoner features a custom product in-feed system and accurate rotary sleeve/carton feeder that enables it to run various product sizes and types at speeds up to 160 sleeves/cartons per minute. An integral pusher head ensures gentle product handling and efficient loading, making the HS1-12 ideal for frozen meal and home meal replacement applications.
Toolless, snap-in and snap-out change parts, digital position indicators from SIKO and Rockwell Automation ControlLogix and Panelview Plus HMI controls ensure quick changeover. An all-servo design features Allen-Bradley multi-axis Kinetix servos for increased uptime, simple operation and precise product handling.
The cartoner is available in stainless steel for wash down environments, and features a flap tucking and gluing area. Custom PMI product transport systems can be added to feed a staging area to prepare cartons or sleeved trays for secondary packaging.
