The M2000 is Brenton’s next generation of side load case packer. Replacing the top selling Brenton Mach 2, but maintaining the mechanical precision of the Mach 2 while adding updates to the electrics and esthetics that reduce the case packer’s footprint by 25 percent, shortens installation time, and creates an easy to operate machine.

Brenton designed the M2000 for higher uptime by making changeover more repeatable. The M2000 is rated at between 12 and 30 wrap-around, regular slotted cases (RSC) or trays per minute.

The stand-alone control enclosure for the Mach 2 has been abandoned in favor of locating several compact enclosures on the M2000, which contributes to a 25 percent reduction in footprint over the already compact Mach 2. Enclosures on the machine and distributed I/O greatly simplify wiring requirements, resulting in startup within days, not weeks, and overall simpler troubleshooting.

Changeover verification technology guides operators, even the inexperienced, through the changeover process quickly and accurately. If any setting is off for the specified recipe, the M2000 will not run. This feature reduces the likelihood of damage to the machine from an incorrect adjustment.

For speedy issue resolution, various sections of the M2000 are assigned specific colored task lighting that illuminates a fault and pinpoints for personnel the area of the machine to examine. Bright white LED strip lighting throughout the M2000 provides well illuminated workspace for operations and maintenance personnel.

Clear polycarbonate cladding along the length of the M2000 give personnel an unobstructed view of critical operations. New corporate colors enhance its appearance. Redesigned safety circuits ensure the utmost in worker safety and simplify wiring. RFID identification cards replace passwords for a high level of security.

Brenton Engineering was founded in downtown Carlos in 1987. Initially there was an idea for a new product: a cable-car lift that could be used on steep lakeshore banks. However, the company was soon asked to manufacture a custom packaging machine. Before long orders for specialty machines began to come in, thus setting the course for the company's future.
