The MK-ISP – Intermittent Servopack Cartoner is a servo-driven, compact cartoner that can be easily integrated into new/existing production lines. This cartoner can be designed to fit in any production environment, including wet, cold, dusty, and humid. The MK-ISP can also handle an array of different product applications making this cartoner ideal for complex projects. Furthermore, AFA can design special in-feed systems for unique package configurations and sizes. The MK-ISP is servo-driven, which ensures high speeds and improved fault diagnostics. Stainless steel construction, U.H.M.W. chain rails, and No Product, No Carton, No Load are standard providing numerous benefits such as long-term operation and quiet, efficient operation.

The MK-ISP also includes standard features such as PanelView 700 HMI, CompactLogix PLC system, discharge belts, and category 3 guarding with safety interlocks. The MK-ISP can handle tuck, glue, or both style cartons on the same machine. High-speed collating speeds are available through the use of the Linear Servopack System.
