The arranging device is intended for handling relatively small multipacks (beverage cans in four- or six-packs) that have to be turned and distributed at speeds to 600 packs/min. This is done by servo-driven linear axis grippers and arranged into groups to form layers. Complete layers are placed precisely onto pallets or a palletizing tower by a robotic arm.
