Horizontal cartoners feature a servo-controlled rotary carton feeder

Increase speed and reliability

ESS Technologies horizontal cartoners include a programmable logic controller and touchscreen human machine interface, use a tuck-flap closing standard, and offer an option for hot melt glue closure. The Model SC60 cartoner employs intermittent motion and servo controls to erect, load and close 60 cartons per min, while the Model SC100 and Model SC150 units use continuous motion to reach packaging speeds up to 100 and 180 cartons per min. Allen Bradley Kinetix 5500 servo drives control the rotary carton infeed, allowing the vacuum arms to pick, form and place horizontal cartons in the lugged carton transport conveyor. Automatic leaflet feeding, tamper evident labeling and carton coding are optional.
