357 Orbitron™ Continuous-Motion Case Packing Machine / Bottle Packer

The 357 Orbitron™ is a great way to get bottles or cans into cases or pre-formed trays. The overhead flight section guides product into the box continuously, while maintaining a small footprint.

  1. Orbitron’s technology advantage begins with the compact rotary product spacing wheel.
  2. Bottles entering the neck support assembly are gently lowered into case or tray with little or no drop.
  3. The case feed conveyor is power adjustable to accommodate tray height variations.
  4. Positive-positioning change part locators are provided with pre-set stops to allow immediate start-up and production.
  5. Direct drive “shear arm” assembly eliminates gearbox backlash for accurate bottle to case timing.
  6. Single-point adjust-down product detectors protect product and machine. 
  7. Patented on-demand oscillator operates only when smooth product flow is interrupted, for continuous operation.
  8. Compact, all-stainless-steel frame. Full-length, electrically interlocked guard doors provide quick access and complete safety.
  9. Screw-type adjustment points for easy changeover.
  10. Integral quick-adjust handles for minimum tool requirements.
  11. Case lug chain take-up mounted outside frame for easy access.
  12. Operator control station mounted via 180° swivel arm provides maximum convenience and safety in setup and operation. “Handless” operation.
  13. Remote-mounted main electrical enclosure provides flexibility of location.
  14. NEMA 4x SST electrical boxes mounted on machine allow full washdown.
  15. Optional automatic lubrication system reduces maintenance requirements and enhances machine longevity.
  16. Five-foot infeed extension for loose product sweep-off. Delete option for multipack-only applications.
  17. Three-color indicating beacon for quick and easy machine status.
