Equipement boite 3 volets MG Tech - machine de sur-emballage

Top Load boxes machine

An MG-Tech top load boxes machine is a cartoning solution that consists of 3 elements:

  • the shaping of boxes by hot melt gluing for lockage (box former)
  • the loading of the products in the boxes which can be manual (workstations) or automatic (robots)
  • the closing of the boxes (only in the case of boxes with lid)

The 3 elements are either grouped together within a single piece of equipment, which is then a combined top load unit with the advantages of saving space and a single control system, or separated into 3 distinct and independent modules with the advantage of being able to be deployed progressively according to market trends (firstly a former and closing machine, then an automatic boxing machine).

The MG-Tech top load boxes machine can pack many products such as fruits, flow packs, pots, sealed trays, compote bottles, coffee capsules, preserves...in a wide variety of activities: cosmetics, pharmacy and parapharmacy, dairy, cheese, sweet grocery, pet food, coffee, infusions...

The strong point of the MG-Tech top load boxes solution is the control of the changeover of cans format with 2 possible levels of automation: guided by the touch control terminal and controlled by sensors, or fully automatic in less than 2 minutes.

With a robust and modern design, in steel construction or in stainless steel version, the MG-Tech top load boxes machines are designed with full height access doors at the front and at the back to facilitate user access.
