Continuous Motion Hand Load Cartoner for Seated or Standing Operators

The VHL vertical hand load cartoning machine is the answer for hard to load products. The VHL is a continuous motion machine with the operator controlling the carton supply with timed vacuum control. The machine erects and closes the bottom of the carton prior to the hand-load area. After loading, the top of the carton is closed and then discharged from the machine.

The VHL addresses evolving safety and ergonomic concerns. Electrically interlocked barrier guarding and main drive overload detent clutch protect the operator from injury. Adco's lower hand-load stations accommodate seated or standing operator positions.

The VHL is capable of machine speeds up to 125 cartons per minute - depending on carton structure, design, the products to be loaded, and operator dexterity.

Like all Adco machines, the VHL is constructed out of stainless steel and is available in both, standard and washdown configurations.
