Automatic single and double-track machine for the application of plastic handles on pet bottles
The handles are loaded manually into the hopper of an elevator that transfers them directly into the vibrating cup from where they exit already oriented correctly for the application unit.
During the sorting process mechanical/pneumatic systems arrange the handles so they arrive with the correct side in front of the orientation system.
Orientation ensures no handles on the chute are the wrong way round. Orientation is achieved via a video camera system that detects any incorrect handle positioning. The handle is conveyed on a guide towards the orientation system. The handles, already correctly positioned, are passed to the orientation system and channelled directly towards the chute.
The application unit consists of chains that push the handles onto the neck of the container/bottle, which in the meantime is fed along the conveyor belt. This is a dynamic, continuous system; in fact, the bottle does not stop during clipping but continues on its way. The bottle is stabilised by inverter-controlled side guides.
Maximum production speed single lane: 6.000 bottles/h
Maximum production speed double lane: 5.000+5.000 bottles/h
If required, It’s possible to equip the system with:
- An Elevator with greater volume than standard;
- An apparatus that inform when bottles are clipped and it is completed with an ejector system for the un-clipped bottles
- Handle orientation system with a reciprocating motion of 90º
Are available hopper with different capacity:
200lt (depending on handles shape it can contain up to 2000 handles)
600lt (depending on handles shape it can contain up to 6000 handles)
