MG2 Packaging Division

Exploring new opportunities.
In 1997, after 30 years of activity focused on the capsule fillers field, MG2 has decided to increase its products range to the packaging field, by the acquisition of a well-known local Company specialized in the manufacturing of packaging machines.

This decision signs the birth of MG2 “Packaging Division” and allows MG2 to create new projects and explore new fields of activity, expanding from the pharmaceutical to the cosmetic and foodstuff markets.

The acquired Company transferred to MG2 its competences and know-how in the designing of pouching machines, cartoners, tray formers, case packers and palletizers.

Thanks to this acquisition, MG2 is able to offer a complete solution for primary and secondary packaging to its customers.

Today, MG2 can offer a reliable range of packaging machines, such as:
• forming and filling machines for boxes and trays
• vertical and horizontal case-packers
• palletizers
• cartoners
• track&trace systems for bundles, bottles and cartons
• counting machines for tablets and capsules

KARTOS I/100

The KARTOS I/100 is an intermittent motion cartoner, designed to pack pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food products inside pre-glued cartons.
The KARTOS I/100 is a fully electronic machine, equipped with brushless motors to ensure optimal functioning and high performance. Its balcony style design guarantees complete accessibility to the working area, simplifying the overall use. The extensive integration of belts (instead of traditional chains) allows for reduced cleaning time and maintenance requirements.
Carton pick up and erection, product/component feeding and verification, as well as flap closing are carefully managed by fail-safe logic.
Wide carton size range and numerous automatic feeding systems available, allow the KARTOS I/100 to satisfy many different packaging requirements; infeed unit position can be customized, making the KARTOS easy to integrate on any line layout.
Size change-over is fast and simple; all adjustments are performed through micrometric scales and digital meters.
Carton closing can be set up for straight (airplane) or reverse flap tuck-in closure, with possibility of glue closure.
KARTOS I/100 can be equipped with several optional units, such as:
- 5th panel carton handling;
- leaflet inserting unit
- product presence verification
- carton coding (emboss, ink-jet, laser)
- barcode readers
- reject units for carton, leaflet and product

GTL30

GTL30 is an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain vertical case packer. Unit maintenance and cleaning is greatly facilitated thanks to its cantilever (balcony) type design.
GTL30 achieves the right balance between the high quality mechanical design that guarantees positive case opening, erection and handling and the highly advanced electronic technology that incorporates the use of brushless motors for the main machine movements.
Compressed air system is only used for the secondary movements.
GTL30 is available in two versions (GTL30 – GTL30/L) to run different case size ranges. Case closure can be either hot-melt or tape.
Case packing section does not require any size parts in that different case sizes can be accomodated by simple and precise adjustments via the use of three hand-wheels.
Various types of product in-feed systems are available. The in-feed system can be installed to the right or the left of the case magazine.

GTF60

GTF60 is a fully electronic machine, suitable to satisfy all demands of pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food industries; the use of brushless motors ensures precise functioning and high performances.
The box size range is very wide, up to a maximum of mm. 300 x 300 x 150 (including lid).
The balcony design guarantees the complete accessibility on each side, in order to optimize machine operations. The use of chainless systems allows to minimize cleaning time and maintenance requirements.
All phases of box forming, product infeed, filling and box closing are carefully controlled.
Box forming: the box or tray is automatically formed and glued, starting from flat blanks. It is possible to use different kinds of pressboard or line boards. The box or tray is formed through a servo-driven mechanical system, to ensure a perfect seal when the flat blank is glued. The glue is applied by a hot melt system.
Product infeed: numerous automatic feeding systems are available, for both in-line and 90-degree feeding, using either conveyor belts, buckets, stackers or others. The infeed position is extremely flexible, in order to meet any line’s layout requirement.
Box closing: the box is closed by mobile folders which fold the side flaps and tuck in the last flap. If required, the box can be glue-sealed, even on three sides.
Optional units: the machine can be fitted with several optional units, such as: leaflet insertion unit; box content control; box marking/labelling; bar code readers; rejection station.

About us

Company details

MG2.
Innovation as a mission.

MG2 was founded in Bologna in spring 1966 by Ernesto Gamberini, a young designer of automatic machines, who involved a colleague and an aunt, as backer.The first location of the company was in a small warehouse in Bologna outskirts and there, he started to design and produce automatic machines for the food and pharmaceuticals industries.

In 1967 MG2 received its first order for a capsule filling machine suitable to dose pharmaceuticals into hard-shell capsules: this product would get so much success to become the core-business of the company. In fact, thanks to the experience and the enthusiasm of the founding members, since the beginning MG2 has been able to guarantee the production of machines which join innovation, reliability, productivity and accuracy: these aspects will accompany the whole story of MG2.

The real intuition of Gamberini consisted in applying to the capsule fillers, for the first time in the world, the
continuous rotation movement in replacement of the alternated movement: this principle was applied to the project of the mythical Model G36. This technology, protected by a patent, completely changed the way to design and construct this type of machines, thus consistently contributing to their technological development. MG2 has been exclusive producer of this type of machines for long time and still now, MG2 is a leader worldwide for this kind of automatic machines.

Over the years, MG2 growth continued and the company developed more and more perfect products on the technological and functional point of view. Modern computer technologies together with big investments in R&D allowed to join innovation to the almost “craft-type” experience of the company, thus leading MG2 up to become a landmark for the state of art in its sector.

MG2 headquarter is based in Pianoro (Bologna), the heart of the "Packaging Valley" of the town, but the main goal of the company remains the international market to which 90% approximately of the turnover is exported. MG2 presence abroad is well established also thanks to the historical branch in United States. MG2 can rely on both a network for direct sales in Italy and 40 agents all over the world.
