MA 100 Intermittent motion cartoner for blister

The Marchesini MA100 is an intermittent motion automatic machine with horizontal transport of the carton, suitable for packing blisters into flaps straight or reverse tuck-in cartons.

Main Features

  • Design, manufacturing and ergonomics, in accordance with cGMP norms;
  • Versatility and efficiency in a small footprint;
  • Balcony design to improve accessibility, maintenance and cleaning operations;
  • Working zone on operator side for cartons, products and leaflets transport, separated from the rear of the machine enclosing the mechanics and the main servo motor drive;
  • Cartons transport and closing movements running in oil bath, enclosed in two drive boxes;
  • Cartons transport system with adjustment (“a” quote) from a single point of intervention, through handwheel and digital indicators;
  • Adjustment of carton length (“h” dimension), by widening the belt transport system, through handwheel and digital indicators;
  • Separated removable bins for collecting rejected products, cartons and leaflets;
  • Handwheel, digital indicators, millimeter scales and size gauges for easy size changeover;
  • Simultaneous adjustment of all infeed buckets from a single point of intervention, by means of a size gauge, for a quick adjustment of the “a” quote;
  • CE marking.

Blister feeders

  • Automatic, electronic Blister feeder from a vertical magazine;
  • Magazine to be loaded on top with Blisters arriving from one lane;
  • The Blisters are taken from the bottom by servo motor driven separation-release mechanism. Exact separation is obtained with moving small fingers, which in alternate movement hold and release the Blister;
  • The count is electronically commanded;
  • The magazine is in a fix position and Blister discharge is done direct into the buckets of the intermittent motion Cartoner’s infeed chain.

Cartoning Section

  • Cartons magazine with length of 630 mm (24.80”), placed at about 900 mm (35.43”), in an easy position for the operator to load cartons, equipped with motorized pusher belts and minimum load control;
  • Simplified magazine guides and pickup adjustment with millimeter scales.
  • Carton opening by means of a pick-up oscillating arm and 90 degrees mechanical pre-breaking unit;
  • Direct transfer of the opened carton into the transport group equipped with 4 strong plastic toothed belts to keep the carton in perfect square;
  • Product insertion into carton, by means of a pusher unit placed opposite the operator side;
  • Carton closing and discharge on outfeed guides.
