Top: The top-loading cartoning machine for packaging with a variety of components (intermittent)


The MTL modular top-loader is suitable for the production of multi-component packagings. Products of different sizes or quality are loaded through individually designed feeding units. Carton inlays ensure an optimum hold of the package content. Manual infeed sections make it possible to flexibly equip the unit with additional components if necessary.

Machine features

Top loading

During vertical cartoning, the box is first set upright, then adhesive is applied, it is filled from the top and finally closed. This method offers the advantage of being able to fill boxes in a variety of ways.

Product feeding

Product feeding plays a critical role in packaging machines. Harro Höfliger has a large repertoire of product handling systems. The feeding technology is configured individually depending on the requirements of the project and adjusted to the particular specifications.


Automated logistics concepts control how product components are fed via feeding unit and regulate the transport systems within the machine. Robot and automation technology is used to insert components into the packaging machine.


All common cartoning closing methods are used in Harro Höfliger packaging machines. Whether closing the box with carton flaps, by applying an adhesive, by placing a cover on it or with sealing wax. The Höfliger experts can even find the ideal technical solution for custom special closing methods.
