Servo-driven Bottle Laner
Eliminate Packing Line Jams
Standard-Knapp’s Bottle Laner is engineered to handle a variety of bottles, as well as non-round and unstable containers, making it ideal for bottle packing applications in the food and beverage, household chemical and personal care industries. Standard-Knapp’s Bottle Laner is designed to distribute bottles from a single-file line to multiple lanes, and it can also redistribute two lanes into three or more for more efficient bottle packing. Powered by a servo drive and timing belt, the Bottle Laner actuates payout of a specific quantity of containers to the downstream lanes, ensuring the lines remain steadily supplied and balanced.
A smart sensor counts each bottle or container that passes through the Bottle Laner to determine that each downstream lane receives an equal quantity, guaranteeing line balance and preventing damaging jams. A brake rail running the length of the laner provides slight side pressure when stopped to ensure that bottles and containers remain in the upright position and bottle packing is successful.
The Bottle Laner can be integrated with a case packer or remain free standing. Featuring quick and easy changeover in a matter of minutes by utilizing a user-friendly touch screen, Standard-Knapp’s Bottle Laner is a robust and virtually maintenance-free packing machine.
