Heavy Duty Intermittent Motion Cartoner

The HD-IMA – Heavy Duty Intermittent Motion Autoload Cartoner is a robust and heavy-duty cartoner that can handle applications where product handling is essential for consistent operation. The HD-IMA’s modular design allows for a wide variety of infeed systems to be used on the system. The HD-IMA also features the SureLoad. The Sure-Load is a carton closing rail system that ensures product does not have the opportunity to fall out of the carton during flap closing operation. With this feature, you can run multi-pack cartons at a very high-speed without the fear of falling product.

The HD-IMA Cartoner utilizes an Allen Bradley ControlLogix PLC system to control all components on the cartoner efficiently. Additional systems can be integrated with the HD-IMA cartoner, including leaflet feeders, printers, labelers, and more. With the ability to handle bags, pouches, flow-wraps, and many other applications, the HD-IMA provides the ultimate flexibility for all your cartoning needs.
