The MK-CMA – Continuous Motion Autoload Cartoner is a robust, innovative cartoner that can handle a wide range of applications. The MK-CMA provides semi-automated or fully automated cartoning to manage your unique application. All major actuated components are servo driven on the MK-CMA. Autoload buckets can be adjusted manually or can feature fully automated change over to reduce set-up time. The MK-CMA features an Allen Bradley Controls Package that includes servo motors, servo drives, PanelView HMI, CompactLogix PLC, and more. Stainless steel panel construction and U.H.M.W. chain rails are standard, which provides long life and quiet, efficient operation. The MK-CMA can handle a wide range of product applications, including bags, pouches, blisters and more.

The MK-CMA also comes standard with a VPN remote troubleshooting system. AFA programmers can easily access the controls of the system to solve problems in the field. This feature mitigates costly service and travel time. In addition, the MK-CMA can be designed to run in a wet environment with stainless steel construction, sloped cabinets, and USDA food grade motors and electrics.
