Machine working flow
Featuring a cantilever structure which allows complete separation of the mechanical driven parts and the product handling area, cleaning time on the horizontal intermittent motion PG cartoner is notably reduced, due to the elimination of areas where product residue or packaging material depositing would be inevitable. Carton erection, carried-out by means of an articulated twin blade inserted into the carton ensuring positive pre-breaking, allows low grammage board to be used even when handling square-section formats or cartons with glueing and creasing imperfections.
Perfect product introduction (even for products with irregular shape/dimensions) is guaranteed by the insertion of the moveable rnouthpiece inside the carton. Products are also prevented from straying out of the carton by the action of the spring-loaded guides which automatically close during the return stroke of the pusher.
The PG cartoner can be equipped with a complete range of product feeding systems and additional units, such as: coders, leaflet and booklet feeders, detection and reject devices, etc.. As on all CAMmachinery, the PG is also equipped with the Mechanical Memory®’ system, transforming complete size change-over into a series of rapid and pre-set operations, which can be carried-out by unskilled personnel in less than 10 minutes, eliminating the need for fine-tuning adjustments and allowing size change-over to coincide with actual production change-over.
