The Dutch manufacturer Langen renowned in the packaging industry for providing cartoning solutions for more than 60 years, has developed its latest benchmark in hygienic cartoning, known as the MAESTRO.
This new continuous motion state of the art system is designed to handle a large range of product/carton combinations with speed capability up to 500 cartons per minute including larger cartons up to 320mm x 370mm. It can easily handle a wide variety of applications – stick packs, flow wraps, pouches - and tailored solutions to suit products and cartons that require careful handling, collation and organising incoming product from up-stream equipment.
The MAESTRO is completely servo driven with open stainless steel construction. The machine provides the fastest changeovers for increased production time along with superb hygiene, ergonomics, performance, accessibility, low maintenance and final product quality.
The HMI focuses on ease of navigation for the operators & maintenance personnel with on-screen videos to assist maintenance and changeovers.
