Tray loading machines


Gentle, safe, and fast – these are the top priorities when tray loading vials or cartridges. Syntegon’s solutions take care of those crucial tasks: all cartridge and vial loading solutions have been designed for smooth transport and high output, processing up to 24,000 units per hour with reduced error rates.

Thanks to special conveyor transport systems, operators can fully trace the containers. Handling robots further contribute to reproducible processes, as they precisely pick and place the containers. A multitude of loading patterns and low format part numbers ensure convenient, highly flexible changeovers.

Features of our tray loading machines


GLT- Horizontal accurate tray loading of vials


TLU - High speed tray loading of cartridges

GLT - Horizontal accurate tray loading of vials

A unique loading concept makes the GLT the optimum choice for accurate, horizontal tray loading of vials. Thanks to a combination of infeed star wheels, transport belts and pusher bars, the system aligns vials in front of the loading platform without guides, thereby minimizing faulty runs. In terms of flexibility, various loading patterns and tray configurations make it highly adaptable, which is backed by a reduced number of format parts for fast changeovers. High outputs of up to 24,000 vials per hour lay the basis for productive tray loading.

  • Effective, user-friendly traying
  • Flexible tray configurations
  • Servo-based vial count
  • Tray loading from a single position
