Emmeti USA: Combo bulk depalletizer/case depalletizer machine
Emmeti S.p.A. introduces The Octopus a combo bulk depalletizer/case depalletizer machine designed to effectively handle geometrically challenged bottle shapes and cased goods on one single machine.
Beth Zarnick-Duffy, Sales Manager of Emmeti USA, says, “Emmeti’s Octopus machine is capable of adapting to the ever changing requirements on the bottling line from rectangular frosted bottles, to silk screened 750 ml reverse tapered bottles, to cylindrical liquor bottles with a tapered base, while maintaining the flexibility to quickly job change, to depalletizing cased bottles, without even so much as a tool.”
Emmeti realizes that the industry trend is to automate the bottling line while saving money, by purchasing bulk glass, and ultimately achieving an efficient, flexible, space saving bottling line. Some plants are not ready to fully commit to a dedicated bulk bottling line, or they must save space inside the plant while having the ability to depalletize both bulk glass and cases on one single machine, that is why under these circumstances, Octopus is the best solution. Emmeti’s competitively priced Octopus Depalletizer, is versatile enough to adapt quickly and easily from bulk glass to cased ware without tools, making this machine perfect for frequent changeovers with unsurpassed flexibility.
One single head can capture the layer of cases or sweep off bulk bottles, or pick & place odd shaped bottles while depalletizing onto an optional bottle discharge table with dynamic transfer and pressureless aligner. The Octopus is designed to provide the lowest total cost of ownership, ease of operation and offer reliable, low maintenance performance without using proprietary parts. A dedicated software program can be installed to store in memory recipes for all layer patterns. Using this program the machine will be automatically self-adjusted for any recipe recalled from memory, thus reducing job change time to “0”. The Octopus combo unit is capable of running at speeds up to 2.5 layers per minute.
