CF-600s / CF-1200s ControlARC2® Top Load Carton Former


Featuring ADCO’s innovative ControlARC2® design, the CF-600s and CF-1200s top load tray formers were conceived from the ground up to deliver excellent performance and flexibility along with extraordinary ergonomics and reliability. ADCO’s ControlARC2® design allows these machines to be fitted with a low-level, easy to load magazine to help control worker fatigue and it also provides maximum control and flexibility when handling material variations. Delivering class-leading carton erecting performance at speeds up to 120 cartons per minute, these top load carton formers are a great choice for many applications including Retail Ready and Shelf Ready packaging. Fast changeover, simple operation and clean design make the CF family of tray formers ideal for the most demanding production environments. Like all ADCO machines, the CF600-s and the CF-1200s are constructed in stainless steel and are available in both, standard and washdown configurations.
