Bottles are transferred directly from the conveyor into the gripper head. The bottles are held mechanically throughout the entire process and cannot fall over, says the company. This machine can handle all bottle shapes with sizes from 0.5 to 3 L at speeds to 3.7 layers/min. The bottles can be fed by a single- or multi-track air or slat-band conveyor.
