IWK Packaging Introduces Two Versatile Vertical Cartoners
IWK Packaging Systems, Inc., a manufacturer of premium cartoning and tube filling equipment for the pharmaceutical, health and beauty sectors, has introduced a pair of versatile vertical cartoners – one intermittent, one continuous – that provide premium cartoning capabilities at comparably cost-effective price points.
Defined by modular extendibility, high levels of positioning precision and fast changeovers, both machines are attractive options for pharmaceutical or personal care manufacturers that carton a wide range of containers.
The VI 5 Vertical Cartoner is an intermittent motion machine with an open, accessible work area and a modularly extendable length that optimizes floor space. Suitable for a wide array of containers including bottles, tubes, blister packs, jars, pouches and bags, the touch-screen-operated VI 5 can produce up to 75 cartons per minute, with a format range of 25-100 millimeters long, 20-90 millimeters wide and 50-230 millimeters in height.
Meanwhile, IWK’s VC 5 Vertical Cartoner is a continuous motion module that can produce up to 120 cartons per minute. Like the VI 5, the VC 5 also features an open, ergonomic work area and an extendable length that optimizes its footprint. Easy to clean and touch-screen operated, the unit offers semi-automatic packing of a broad range of containers, including bottles, tubes, blister packs, jars, pouches and bags.
