BOTTLE HANDLING SYSTEM
ABOUT BOTTLE HANDLING SYSTEMS:
Bottle handling equipment are custom made, non moving and moving parts that are specifically designed keep bottles upright and stable in a moving packaging line. One size does not fit all in bottling lines. Many bottles are tall, irregularly shaped, poorly balanced and generally unstable on a moving conveyor line. The faster the conveyor line runs, even “good” bottles become more unstable. Instability and imprecise movement of containers means packaging downtime and lost profits.
Inline Filling Systems has mastered the “art” and science of precise container and bottle handling with many specialized designs of gating systems, gripper assemblies, timing screws, transporters, starwheels, etc. This often overlooked expertise is what you get when you buy a packaging system from Inline Filling Systems, Inc.
MOTORIZED BELT GRIPPERS
Often used to keep the container stable when transferred over “dead” spaces from one conveyor to another. The belt speeds are matched with the conveyor speeds so that the bottle’s momentum is never disturbed.
Grab the necks of tall bottles with narrow openings or large bottles with significant manufacturing variances. The necks are forced to line up equally spaced apart so that nozzles can find their way into the opening.
Pneumatically controlled gates are adjustable on three axis with adjustable height stabilizing fingers. This ensures bottles are in the right place, standing up straight, and keeping the bottle steady during the filling process.
BOTTLE SPIN ORIENTERS
Bottle handling device used to spin containers into the proper orientation for further operations on a packaging line. Typically used to orient containers for proper label placement.
Conveyor mounted unit consists of a motorized horizontal disk running parallel to a continuously running conveyor. Unit momentarily halts forward movement of the container to create required spacing between containers upstream of labelers, cappers and neck banders.
