The new VC-VCA cartoner joins AFA Systems' growing line of cartoning solutions.

The VC-VCA vertical autoload cartoner is AFA Systems Ltd.‘s new high-speed vertical cartoner, capable of handling a variety of product applications..

Headquartered in Brampton, Ont., AFA Systems is a provider of custom-designed automation solutions, and has designed its VC-VCA with a very compact rotary turret loading system that replaces the traditional racetrack vertical loader.

According to AFA Systems, the rotary turret loading system makes it easier for maintenance, as it has fewer parts and is situated at an ergonomically level.

The cartoner has a very small footprint to save valuable floorspace and improve operator optics during machine troubleshooting.

Changeover is extremely fast with optional push button changeover.

In addition, the VC-VCA has either fixed or adjustable carton carriers, and features Rockwell Automation‘s  Allen-Bradley controls and servo drives on all major motors.

Optional features include:

  • all servo push-button changeover;
  • standard no product, no carton, no load feature;
  • left- or right-hand flow;
  • hot melt of tuck closure;
  • other optional equipment can be integrated into cartoner, including leaflet feeders, deboss or ink type daters;
