The MK-SML – Servo Manual Load Cartoner is a servo-driven cartoner that can quickly bring value to your production line. The MK-SML features a double operator station to allow for high manual load packaging speeds. Paperboard cartons; regular, full, or economy flaps; fine flute corrugated; glue, seal, or tuck cartons – the MK-SML cartoner handles these cartons with ease. Nordson ProBlue adhesive unit provides accurate glue application on carton flaps. Tuck option is available for tuck style cartons. Allen Bradley controls, and servo drives provide smooth operator control, easy setup and changeover, and accurate fault diagnostic capabilities. The MK-SML also includes a “No Product/No Carton/No Load” feature to reduce waste and improve efficiency. Stainless steel construction and full safety guarding are standard.

Additional equipment can be easily integrated into the system, such as labelers, printers, bar code readers, and more. This servo-driven cartoner also can feature a carton prebreak to handle square cartons. An Allen Bradley CompactLogix control system is standard on this robust cartoner.
