Thanks to the guides and installed photocells, one or two rows of containers are created which enter the preforming area through a feed conveyor.
A drive manages the gearmotor, which controls the pusher which makes the rows of containers enter a bag obtained with a plastic film closed along the sides like a “tube”. Antistatic bars eliminate the electrostatic charge inside the bag.
The first side of the bag is welded and transported along the stainless steel surface. Four gripping hands open the bag and the pusher pushes the bottles inside the bag.
The last side of the bag is sealed by a vertical electro-pneumatic mechanism.
Once the bag is closed, the suction cups on the pick-up head move it from the preforming to the palletising area, and release the layer.
The completed pallet comes out of the palletising area on chain conveyors.
