ControlARC2 CF1200

Top Load Carton Forming Machine

Featuring ADCO’s innovative ControlARC2® design, the CF-600 and CF-1200 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 minimize worker fatigue and provide maximum control and flexibility when handling material variations. Delivering class-leading carton erecting performance at speeds up to 90 cartons per minute, this top load carton forming machine is 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 CF-600 (single head) and the CF-1200 (double head) are constructed in stainless steel and are available in both standard and washdown configurations.
