Vertical Rotary Cartoner

Vertical Rotary Cartoner - VRC

Featuring a 10-pocket starwheel, the ADCO VRC was designed to erect, load, and seal medium to large size vertical end load cartons.

The VRC is ideal for space-conscious facilities that require a vertical load cartoner. The VRC uses a rotary starwheel with “no-tool” changeout pockets to quickly changeover. The VRC can be configured to accept product from liquid bag fillers, scales, or from a robotic handling system. With its space-saving footprint and flexible design, the Compact 4 is ideal for pharmaceutical and cosmetic packagers. Like all ADCO machines, the Compact 4 is constructed in stainless steel.
