The F2000 is a carton erecting machine which automatically prepares the boxes with the four bottom flaps folded, taking them from the side magazine. Once the carton is formed it is sent to the filling line after automatic taping of the bottom. Carton erecting is perfectly carried out even with light cardboard thanks to a patented device. Any interference from the flaps during folding is completely eliminated. The reduced dimensions of the F2000 allow it to be incorporated in existing lines or installed in a limited space.
