Linear Orientator

OL PN


For containers from 0.33 L to 5 L

The machine is designed to orient, by a 180° rotation, asymmetrical plastic containers standing on a slat conveyor, in order to place them in the required position and succession (all in the same direction, alternate, etc.). This happens automatically according to a preset program.

Operating Principle

A reading station in the machine inlet area recognizes the containers to be orientated. The ones correctly positioned continue their run along the conveyor whereas the others are orientated by a pincer, pneumatically driven, that rotates the containers by 180° on their vertical axis, placing them in the required position. To allow an optimal orientation performance a belt device, mounted just before the pincer, spaces the containers out, in order to create a suitable rotation space. This system assures a high hourly output and a regular and reliable working because the containers movement on the conveyor is never stopped; moreover, since it eliminates any accumulation need, it also allows to reduce the overall dimensions of the line.

Considering the applications and speeds this orientator is usually employed for, the slat conveyor that crosses the machine shall be provided with a vacuum suction unit.

The orientator can be assembled in monobloc with a rotary unscrambler, with advantages of price, amount of space and line efficiency.
