Product specification

Using the automated stack packing system VA.02 allows tapping full potential of upstream machines (e.g. perfect binders, saddle stitchers).

With an output of 700 stacks per hour packing system VA.02 offers a permanently available and constant capacity buffer. Production must no longer be reduced because of a manpower bottleneck in packing.

Especially with thick brochures the cartons are full quickly. Then additional workforce is needed if the perfect binder should run at optimum speed.

The workers are released from exhausting packing by hand which is now done automatically and they can be appointed to other jobs.


The feeding units rotate and turn-over the book stack suitable for packing, no matter in which direction the upstream machine delivers it.

In the first step the stack is aligned on all four sides and the bottom part of the telescope carton is drawn over it. After that the now filled bottom part is turned over. In the last step the lid is drawn over the stack in the carton bottom. Now the stack is packed.

Packing system VA.02 offers space for the integration of different marking or labeling systems after the lid is closed.

The delivery can be configured individually, depending on how the cartons are processed afterwards - automatically or by hand.
