SI 4/6/8 – UP TO 80 CARTONS/MIN.

At outputs of up to 80 cartons per minute, the SI 4/SI 6/SI 8 intermittent cartoning machines are the perfect supplement for appliances in the lower performance range.

The intermittent working principle is suitable for basic product feeding systems. Positive carton opening by levers and stationary counter suction (cups) and carton set-up kinematics.

SI 4

Benefits:

  • Design and machine functions meeting the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry

Options:

The following basic functions are available on all machine types:

  • Product feeding
  • Carton feeding with carton set-up,
  • Product infeed, leaflet feeding
  • Carton closing system with tuck-in and/or glue closure, safety and tamper-evident closure
  • Registration, embossing, control systems (code reader).
  • Product Feeding Systems

The following product feeding systems are available depending on machine type:

  • Tube feeding systems
  • Bottle feeding (by star wheel or auger)
  • Feeding of ampoules, spoons or cannulas
  • 2-6 axis transfer handling systems
  • Sorting, placing and collating of even more difficult products to be fed prior to cartoning

Special feeding systems and application or layout relevant special features are feasible any time.

APPLICATIONS

The cartoners are preferably used for the cartoning of products of the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.

In principle all products to be packed for selling, dispatching or display purposes  – whether as single product or as multiple pack and with or without leaflet or directions booklet – can be cartoned.

Products / or any combination of this list:

  • Tubes
  • Blisters
  • Vials
  • Ampoules
  • Pouches, bottles, sachets
  • Trays
  • Spoons
  • Cannulas

Carton Characteristics / Carton Qualities:

On the SC 5 / SI 5 cartoning machine range all carton qualities with paper weights of 250-500g/qm can be processed (DIN 53121). Recycling qualities are applicable. Dimensions and tolerances of the pre-glued carton should be according to DIN 55522.
