Top Load Cartoner

The modular Top Load Cartoner family of machines feature designs that provide maximum access to all of the drive components while maintaining a compact footprint. These machines are ideally suited for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, personal care, medical device, food and consumer goods applications due to the fall-through construction, which meets all sanitary and FDA validation requirements.


The Top Load Cartoner family includes single and two-headed carton/tray formers for both glue and lock applications, a full line of load cells for all types of products and tuck and glue carton closers for inline and right angle applications. Each machine module is contained in a separate frame making the line flexible for future product changes. Every machine in the family allows for total access to the operator side of the machine with full height guard doors. All of the changeover points are located on the operator side of the machines, making changeover easy and fast.

Proven Performance

Every module of the Top Load Cartoner family includes a full, heavy-duty frame built for three shift per day operation and the quick-change forming heads make changeover easy and fast. Digital gauges and scales with pointers allow for a quick, no-tool changeover in as little as 10 minutes. Like all Serpa machines, the Top Load Cartoner family is user friendly and low maintenance.
