Nalbach Engineering Co.: NECOSORT Cartridge Unscrambler
Automatically sort and feed cartridges (fiber or plastic tubes for caulking compounds, lubricants, etc.) from a random bulk supply.
The number of container-sorting chutes is determined by size of the item being sorted. Shorter items utilize more chutes and thus the speed of production increases due to those additional chutes. The number of chutes is proportional to the height assuring maximum production rates for each item being sorted while keeping rotational speeds low.Gentle handling and precise control: A circular assembly of sorting chutes permits gentle sorting of each item. Each item is individually protected in its own chute which eliminates most sliding contact with stationary surfaces.
The NECOSORT cartridge unscrambler sorts a wide range of cartridge sizes. Easy release clamps and unitized change parts make changeovers a fast and simple operation allowing a single employee with no special skills to complete a changeover in twenty minutes or less. Designed with only two moving parts virtually eliminating downtime the NECOSORT carries a three (3) year warranty!The NECOSORT comes standard with a PLC and color touch screen control. This control system provides an intuitive icon-based graphical user interface making training set-up and operation simple and straightforward. The control system is also a powerful foundation for providing the features and integration capabilities required for a range of production environments. Capabilities include: “recipe” control cartridges per minute indication fault /warning indications and logging “run permissible signal” discrete I/O and system integration via RS232/485 Data Highway (DH/DH+) Ethernet or DeviceNet.Reliability you can count on:The NECOSORT carries a three-year warranty! The NECOSORT family of unscramblers has only two (2) moving parts and one of them is the discharge conveyor. The actual unscrambling mechanism features a single moving part.
