Cartoners
VCMX series

Vertical cartoner with continuous motion at high speed

Senzani VCMX series meets the demands of Customers willing to preserve the greatest quality and reliability, while working at high speed and 24/7.

VCMX machines are engineered for high volume and speed productions, this series is the expression of Senzani innovative technology to guarantee the best results in terms of efficiency, productivity and solidity.

Format change operations are made quick and easy thank to the tool-free technology and the use of modern techniques to simplify the adjustments. A dedicated tutorial to guide the operator step by step is also available, in order to avoid errors and speed up the operations.

In case of product missing in the infeed flow, Senzani “no product/no carton” function prevents the relevant cartons from being picked, so to avoid carton rejection and glue use. Furthermore, in case of machine stop-in-phase, the upper and lower flaps closing stations complete their operations ensuring glue application and drying, resulting in no product and carton waste.

The design phase focusses on the research for modern and innovative solutions also in terms of energy-efficiency, wear-resistance and top-quality components.

All machines are assembled and tested by specialised technicians before delivery, thus remarkably reducing the installation duration.

The cartons produced are both top quality and perfectly shape. Senzani abides by strict manufacturing standard and precision is the guideline in all elements setup and tuning during the test phase and production start-up with the Customer.

The pre-glued cartons handling in the picking and insertion in the carton holders phases is progressive and positive. The insertion into the holder is both delicate and precise to ensure the carton integrity and prevent damages on the graphics. The same is true even when running at extremely high speed, with lightweight paper cartons or squared shaped cartons.

With an eye towards waste reduction, Senzani expertise offers smart functions for product and carton handling during the filling and closing phases, resulting in a positive impact on the investment return.
