Kliklok ACE - Advanced Carton Erector

The Kliklok ACE topload carton former is our most advanced carton forming system. Based on input from our customers around the world, the ACE was designed and built for ergonomics, access, reduced maintenance, and future-proof speeds, up to 240 cpm.

Variable up to
Cartons per minute

The ergonomic carton hopper is at waist level for easy loading. No platform is needed for safe loading. The high capacity hopper is 580 mm (22.83″).

100% positive carton control is provided by the all-new patent-pending Flex Feeder. Its design assists with vertical startup and ensures positive and repeatable carton positioning.

Ultimate versatility is offered by the ability to run lock- and glue-formed cartons on one machine. Ultrasonic sealing is available on a purpose-built machine. Lock and ultrasonic forming provide a sustainable option.

1, 2, 3 heads on one machine future-proofs speeds up to 240 cpm. Heads are individual units and are lightweight (cavities weigh 8 kg / 17 lb). Changeovers can be completed in 10 minutes. Conversions to change the number of heads can completed in about 20 minutes.

The ACE offers scalability in a small footprint with a wide carton size range. Flat blanks can be as small as 190 x 122 mm and as large as 800 x 600 mm.

Full-height guarding for walk-in access provides outstanding accessibility, offering clear visual maintenance inspection adn easier, more ergonomic changeovers.

Integrated servo drives offer plug-and-play maintenance. The electrical cabinet is thereby simplified, saving space and eliminating the need for cabinet air conditioning.
