CAM PG Cartoner
Automatic intermettent motion horizontal cartoner model "PG"
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 carton with glueing and creasing imperfections. Perfect product introduction (even for products with irregular shape/dimensions) is guaranteed by the insertion of the moveable mouthpiece inside the carton, avoiding any uncontrolled passage of product from bucket to 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 use of closed profile cams with surface hardening treatment, guarantees the reliability of all positive driven movements during the course of time. Particular attention has been given to machine cleaning below the carton transport area, where possible product or packaging material residue is conveyed to easily accessible collection areas. 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 CAM machinery, 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 allowing production to be resumed immediately without the need for fine-tuning adjustments.
