Adco VHL Vertical Hand-Load Carton Former Adco VHL Carton Style

Continuous Motion Hand Load Cartoner for Seated or Standing Operators

Capable of cycling at rates up to 125 cartons per minute, the ADCO VHL Vertical Hand Load Cartoner is the answer for difficult to load or loose-fill products that must be loaded on a vertical axis.

The VHL is a continuous motion machine that erects and closes the bottom of the carton before indexing the cartons into a standard U-shaped hand-load area, which offers an ample 3-ft of loading space on both sides of the machine.

After the product is loaded by the operators, the top of the carton is automatically closed and the sealed carton is then discharged from the machine. The VHL features fully interlocked barrier guarding and main drive overload circuit to protect operators. Its ergonomic load area accommodates seated or standing operator positions.

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