Excellent Carton Forming Performance, Flexibility, and Extraordinary Ergonomics

Featuring Adco's innovative ControlARC2 design, the CF-600S and CF-1200S top load tray formers were conceived from the ground up to deliver excellent performance and flexibility along with extraordinary ergonomics and reliability.

Adco's ControlARC2 design allows these machines to be fitted with a low-level, easy-to-load magazine to help control worker fatigue. This innovative design also provides maximum control and flexibility when handling material variations.
