Horizontal Cartoners

A horizontal cartoning machine designed for speed and accuracy for a wide variety of products.

Horizontal cartoning machines from PMI KYOTO package a wide array of products with speed and accuracy. This machine can even use our robotic technology to make packaging all the more precise. Available in both continuous or intermittent motion, our machines accurately and gently load your product at high-speeds with articulating in-feed buckets or by hand when slower speeds are required. For products that are frozen or susceptible to condensation, PMI KYOTO even offers washdown specifications to reduce the risk of rust and keep your machine looking pristine.
