Efficient and Flexible, Cartoning Done Right
Built to exacting Douglas Machine standards, the flexible platform of the Vectra™ servo cartoner allows for either continuous or intermittent motion operation based on application requirements. The open architecture design provides easy adaptation to variety of food and beverage plant conditions ranging from dry to hostile washdown area requirements.
All servo driven technology ensures absolute product control in all machine phases from infeed to discharge. Each motion is precisely designed for your application, resulting in greater throughput, less waste and higher production efficiency.
- Speeds up to 300 cartons per minute
- Open frame design -Designed for efficient sanitation
- Variety of infeed solutions, each infeed system is designed specifically for your application
- Positive Placement Carton Set-up Modularity
- Cycle stop flap closing prevents unsealed cartons from exiting the Vectra
- Tuck cartons use orbital motion closers for preparation of tuck, insertion and locking function
Fast, repeatable changeover feature offers multiple enhancements.
Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″
Flexibility – ability to place lanes where desired as opposed to centerline or fixed side adjustments and more customer options for generating product-specific recipes
Durability – infeed rail’s holding force can withstand high product pressure
Ergonomics – minimizing manual adjustments maximizes efficiency and promotes safety in the work environment
