The machines are designed for easy cleaning and maintenance. Stainless steel constructions make them ideally suited for food products with high sanitation demands. All endload cartoning machines feature a patented Kliklok rotary feeder and can be combined with our product handling equipment for a one stop shop solution.

Wraparound cartoning

Wraparound cartoning, or sleeving, is a popular pack style in many industries, especially when it comes to sustainable packaging solutions. Carton sleeves may replace plastic wraps. Sleeves conserve paper, energy, and consumables costs. Our proven wraparound cartoning machines handle a wide range of different products, carton styles and shapes – you can even chose between a lock or glue closure. Moreover, the cartoners accommodate the sleeving of meal trays, tubs, and pots, either individually, double-row and stacked.

You can add functions like collating, stacking, timing and placing randomly arriving products into chains or onto belts to feed endload or toplad cartoners.
