Omega Design has released an automated bottle unscrambler with frame fabrication technology, replacing the earlier Economy Rotary Pocket (Model ERP) unscrambler.
This latest product was launched at PACK EXPO 2010 and is ideal for those industrial applications that do not demand complete functionality of Omega’s Model RP servo unscramblers. Booth staff offered performance evaluations of the unscrambler, enabling specifiers to choose the appropriate model based on their requirements.
The automatic unscrambler includes a patented rotary pocket system. This compact self-regulating device can gently handle symmetric or asymmetric glass or plastic containers of various shapes ranging from fractional to 64 oz. It can deal with 20 to 280 containers per minute.
The built-in operator panel/automation controller coupled with intelligent I/O and AC drives of the automatic unscrambler are developed by B&R Industrial Automation. B&R also offered technical support to enhance the performance/cost balance of the unscrambler.
Major features of the automated unscrambler include enhanced protection, an easy-load hopper measuring 20 cubic foot, rotary disc style sorter, electrical/positive break interlocks and a flow track elevator. Optional features include incorporated ionized air rinse, low level hopper, tool-less substitution and discharge conveyor.
