The main innovations of the WPS 600R-K model compared to the rest of the range are represented by the newly-developed carton magazine, which contains pre-glued and already folded cartons instead of open cartons, and by the system used for forming the boxes.

The machine picks up one cardboard at a time by means of a suction cup device that, while moving from the warehouse to the work table, performs a misaligned movement to open the carton before placing it on the work table, where two side flaps hold it in place as it moves towards the loading area.

Subsequently, by means of a motorized push-in device with two axes, the loose product is moved laterally inside the carton to create the pack format selected by the control panel of the case packer. Finally, another device folds and glues the side flaps of the cardboard to make the finished box.
