Formierka FCV 4matic

The modular vertical packaging machine for FCV 4matic flap boxes forms and seals four different boxes at the same time. The FCV 4matic packaging machine is offered in two-format or four-format versions.

TWO-FORMAT PACKAGING MACHINE it can be made as dedicated to two specific dimensions of cardboard boxes or multi-format, where the dimensions of the boxes are any in the supported range. The retooling of a dedicated packaging machine is carried out pneumatically, whereas in a multi-format packaging machine the retooling takes place using servo drives.

An integral part of two-format packaging machine is a stationary manipulator that alternately picks up the boxes from cardboard boxes warehouse and moves them vertically into the forming area.

FOUR-FORMAT PACKAGING MACHINE is a universal machine. In each of the four warehouses there can be interchangeable boxes with different dimensions within the machine's dimensional range.

In contrast to the two-format packaging machine, the four-format machine is equipped with a pass-through manipulator picking up selectively boxes from each cardboard boxes warehouse and delivering them to a forming unit. In a four-format packaging machine, all retooling and manipulator movements are based on servo drives and actuators as well as linear drives.


  • B min = 200
  • B max = 300
  • L min = 300
  • L max = 600
  • H min = 100
  • H max = 400

It results from existing standards and possible matrixes of composition of trays on EUR and ISO pallets.
It is possible to manufacture individually in a different dimensional range.

Case erector is available with two gluing options:

  • With adhesive tape
  • Using hot melt

Case erector technical solution allows it to work as independent unit or as part of packaging system.

Possible options:

  • Different possibilities of implementation both options of gluing
  • Different boxes size range - dedicated case former
  • Right or left performance of machine depending on customer needs

Distinction :

The FCV 4matic modular packaging machine is a completely innovative device, therefore PROTiM started the process of applying for a patent for an invention.

Advantages FCV 4matic
