CMV - Continuous Motion Vertical Cartoner

Intermittent Motion Vertical Form/Fill/Seal

The Most Compact And Flexible Cartoning Method

The Rovema CMV series can be supplied with one or two integrated bag makers as a compact, flexible Bag in Box machine, optionally available with direct-filling facilities

  • Bag in folded box
  • Bag without folded box
  • Product filled directly into the folding box

All this is available from a very compact machine.

CMV - With Integrated Bag Maker

Compact and flexible Probably the most compact Bag in Box line. This case, one or two bag makers are integrated into a cartoning machine, additional conveyors and/or transfer systems are not required.

Depending on the configuration and the application, up to 120 folding boxes per minute may be produced. The bags are transferred directly from the vertical bag maker into the vertical folding box. Folding boxes are transported through the machine with oscillating velocity so that the bag is transferred safely into the box.

Unique Features

In addition to the patented box erection and automatic size adjustments, the CMV offers further advantages in comparison with horizontal cartoners. This means that additional modules in the machine can compact the products to to achieve a box fill ratio of 95%.

Ideal for compactable products such as tea or aerated powder.


  • Compact and flexible
  • Safe and secure box erection by a separately powered rotation picker with forced box erection
  • Gentle operation due to oscillating chain movements
  • Programmable 3-dimensional size change, 100% reproducible, reduces conversion times
  • Industrial PC with touch screen, user friendly and reliable
  • Additional options for compactable products

CMV - Direct Filling

The machine can safely pack up to 200 folding boxes per minute and is designed for the direct packing of freely flowing and slightly dusty material into boxes.

The frame of the machine is similar to the Bag in Box CMV, however a continuous revolving filling module is located at the centre of the machine.

Clear Layout And Easy To Set Up

The machine is designed in a line-type design, and it can be controlled completely from the front. The box erection, box transportation along with the different sealing modules as well as the filling module are clearly visible. In addition to the labyrinth folding system that is usually required for direct filling the gluing system can be upgraded to a sift proof system.

Simple size adjustments, a clear line of design and excellent machine control speak for themselves.


  • Easily accessible, clearly arranged functions and line design.
  • Safe and secure box erection by a separately powered rotation picker with forced box erection
  • Sturdy welded tubular frame
  • Programmable 3-dimensional size change, 100% reproducible, reduces conversion times
