MG America: Integrated coding & verification unit for bottle serialization

MG America’s compact ACE-BT300 Coding & Verification Unit for bottle serialization provides track & trace capabilities at unit-level, can handle round, square, and rectangular bottles from 22-120mm in diameter at a rate of 300/min., and can be smoothly incorporated into existing bottling lines.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Coding/marking

The ACE-BT300, which also provides reliability, cost-effectiveness and ease of use, can code bottles either bottom-up or down.  Positive bottle indexing and transportation is assured, as serve-driven side belts provide accurate speed management and position control throughout the process. The machine offers single-point adjustment for complete format changeovers, and bottle rejection is performed via linear motor-driven shaft.

Among the ACE-BT300’s technical advancements is the incorporation of a multi-camera system employed to verify 2D data matrices printed on individual bottles.  Laser printing also is available.

Other features of the ACE-BT300 include: stainless steel machine frame and electrical cabinet; no pneumatic components; reject verification; unit can be supplied with Rockwell/Allen Bradley components.
