AFA Systems has recently designed a cartoner to handle 1″ to 5″ diameter bearings on the same system. This flexibility ensured the end-user could run all of their SKUs on one line. The system also can run glue and tuck cartons on the same machine. A simple infeed system that involves a servo-driven loader provides stable and consistent performance.
AFA Systems has the capacity and skill set to complete end of line turnkey automation projects for its end users. This month’s feature is on a line AFA developed that included case/carton erecting, top-loading, and case/carton closing. To save valuable floor space, AFA utilized its CS-TOP – Top Sealer to run chipboard cartons and cases on the same machine. Also, the turnkey line featured world-class servo change over.

This month’s product feature is on the MK-CMS. The system features a wet environment design that includes all stainless steel construction, food-grade motors, and stainless sloped cabinets and junction boxes. The system accepts product from two lanes and distributes them into the autoload bucket conveyor at 120 ppm. The floorplan of the MK-CMS is ultra-compact and can seamlessly integrate into your production line.
The VL-ILC provides the ultimate flexibility when handling bulk product and erecting specially designed cartons. The system was able to erect a hexagonal carton with a special auto-bottom closure. The VL-ILC also had a unique glue configuration to provide adhesive on three different locations.
This application of the HD-CMA – Heavy Duty Cartoner featured the unit end loading tubes of product at over 120 ppm. The system also featured an integrated Rotary AFA Leaflet Feeder to place literature into continuous motion buckets. The system can run tuck or glue style cartons with minimal changeover time.
We are presently dealing with an unprecedented health situation and we understand the obvious concerns of our business continuity. We would like to update you with our current strategy to mitigate the spread of the virus and ensure the continuation of our ability to deliver products to you.
We hope that you had an informative and productive show at Pack Expo East 2020. AFA Systems is in the business of solving end of line machinery problems.
This month’s product feature is on the TL-PPG, which featured a collating and top loading system for handling bars of product at 300 ppm. The system also can handle RSC Cases and Chipboard Cartons without the need for two separate machines. The gantry robot on the TL-PPG is fully built and designed by AFA.
