Horizontal End Load Cartoners

MBC Compact Auto Load Cartoner


The ADCO MBC compact cartoner was designed to meet the demands of pharmaceutical, cosmetic, personal care and others that need to automatically erect, load and seal small horizontal end load cartons. Featuring a compact footprint, efficient multi-head rotary carton feed design and full length Lexan barrier guarding, the MBC is ideal for space-constrained and demanding production environments. Along with its continuous motion design and reliable side shifting bucket design, the MBC comes standard with swing away overheads, a horizontal powered carton magazine and digital indicators on all adjustments.
