The machine is equipped with a blank magazine with manual loading, from which a flat carton is picked up by means of an arm equipped with suction cups, which is then deposited inside the buckets of a cardboard transport chain. Almost at the end of its run, the blank meets the teeth of the transport chain and the cardboard is U-shaped.
At the same time of the above-mentioned operations, the products arriving from the production line are brought to the batch forming area. The packets, arriving from your production line, are taken from the feeding belt conveyed to the area where a grouping system provide to create the batch. Once it is complete, the batch is introduced in the “U” shaped cardboard.
