FleetwoodGoldcoWyard, A Division of Barry-Wehmiller Companies, Inc: Zero-pressure combiner
The ZPC combiner from Fleetwood (Romeoville, IL) aligns bottles in a single file and uses 4 photo eyes—1 to monitor infeed, 1 to monitor discharge and 2 to monitor gaps between bottles—to ensure a constant feed rate.
The machine’s configuration allows knocked-down bottles to be removed before the bottles feed into the next machine.
