Full Servo Control Carton Forming, Loading, Sealing

The Bartelt CMC fast, flexible and reliable end-load cartoner has all the advantages of full servo control. With operating rates of up to 400 cycles per minute, this cartoning machine takes its place in the high-performance class of horizontal, continuous motion cartoning machines.

The Bartelt CMC cartoner can run a full size range of food and consumer goods – including bags, pouches, trays, flow-wraps, or a variety of loose or stacked products. A multi-head carton feeder and a servo-driven barrel cam product inserter allows for fast cartoning with a high degree of control.

The machine's open-frame clean design provides product visibility. This open frame design also makes sanitation very simple to perform. The CMC can be effortlessly integrated upstream or downstream into an automated packaging system with machines from other manufacturers. Inegrating a Bartelt horizontal form, fill and seal pouching machine creates a turnkey production line from a single source. The CMC cartoner is available in three standard index models: 6", 9" and 12".

Carton size can be easily adjusted, providing a high degree of flexibility, and this high-speed cartoner is able to run many different carton shapes. Changing from flap gluing to flap tucking can be performed quickly and easily.

There are fewer mechanical parts in the Bartelt CMC cartoner, which means low-maintenance and minimized downtime (50 percent fewer components than chain shaft systems). Expect higher availability and reduced production costs. In terms of comfort and production floor safety, the Bartelt CMC cartoning solution also has a particularly ergonomic design and is easy to operate.
