Heavy duty servo motors

Heavy duty servo motors equipped with robust, light weight arms ensure quick, smooth, and consistent motion.

Full-neck insertion

The Uncasing Process Explained


The Uncasing Process
  1. Indexing: Full cases enter the case infeed through a gate for positive control of system back pressure.
  2. Positioning & Gripping: Servo controls position gripper fingers directly over each bottle so that each gripper enters partitioned or non-partitioned cases with ease.
  3. Placement: Pneumatically-driven grippers (latch or bladder) provide secure gripping of bottles.
