Carton Erectors

Carton Erector

Semi-automatic carton erector & manual filling station with box pusher.

  • Side guides automatically (pneumatic) identifying the box width holding the boxes to facilitate its filling with both operator hands
  • 6 bar filtered compressed air required
  • Safety emergency stops
  • Carton pusher into the carton sealer once finished the carton filling
