Often referred to as convertible verticals, this series of packaging equipment was devised for your optimal flexibility and versatility. These machines and the compatible auxiliary equipment from the Yeaman Arsenal were designed like building blocks, much like the ones you used as a child, where you can add and remove pieces of equipment to create a completely different machine for your multitude of product lines. By crafting our equipment in this manner, it allows you to buy a hand-load machine today, and be able to adapt to virtually any product line you may want to run in the future.
In addition to the auxiliary equipment “building blocks,” changeover and plowing features inside the machine can be swapped in and out so you can run different carton styles (i.e. standard fold, reverse fold, gable top, etc.) on the same machine as well. The combinations are endless...imagine what that could do for your product lines
The Yeaman Series of Vertical Cartoning Machines encompasses a large size range, from a .5oz box of raisins to 40lb boxes of kitty litter, and can adapt to a variety of products and industries such as beverage, confectionery, consumer goods, contract packaging, cosmetics, food (rice, pasta, snacks, etc.), hardware, lawn & garden, pet products and more. These products can be presented to our machinery in bags, pouches, blister packs, stick packs, sachets, shrink wrapped, loose product itself, or a combination of products (i.e. mac ’n cheese with loose product and a pouch), this machine handles it all at speeds up to 1,200/cpm!

Our base vertical cartoner machine operation takes flat, side seamed cartons one by one from a vertical Magazine Feeder. Each carton is placed by a vacuum powered Rotary Carton Feeder into a carton “pocket” mounted to a carousal conveyor. Next, the carton bottom flaps are folded closed and sealed, employing a variety of closure styles. The cartons are then brought to an area ample enough to hand-load or automatically load product into the cartons from both sides of the machine. After the hand-load area, the top flaps are plowed closed and sealed, and then the finished carton is discharged from the machine.
The changeover times on our vertical cartoners are extremely quick, run to run. While many of our competitors offer adjustable change parts, we have found our quick-change pockets to be much more beneficial, because quite frankly, time is money. By switching the pocket out, you have accounted for two of the three change-over dimensions. The third is a simple crank adjustment to a marked height. Now there is no extra time spent debugging your new settings because they are already in their exact locations.
All of our packaging equipment is designed and built for simplicity. Period. The base equipment across all of our lines, from cartoners to premade pouch machines to case packers, all utilize the same framework and theory, allowing for us to focus on the part that matters – the best way to handle your products. The way we develop our equipment starts with you. We tend grow intimate with our customers and their product lines, finding the preferred practices to produce the best looking packages while maintaining the integrity and consistency of the product inside the packaging.
