Our Solutions


The Classic unscrambler is mainly suited for medium/large sized bottles for beverages and soft drinks.


Compact is suited for bottles with a maximum height of 270 mm. Especially suitable for beverages, yogurt, foodstuffs, dairy, juices and detergents.

The containers slide gently onto a fixed stainless steel cone and are positioned on the circumference of the unscrambler.

From here, containers are selected by Lifters (Lift Master patent) that convey them smoothly to the upper part of the unscrambler. In this way the bottles avoid being re-scrambled and knocked about due to the high relative velocities typical of other technologies. The efficiency of the unscrambler is further increased by the bottle extractor systems (in most cases without stopping the machine) that remove any damaged bottles that are conveyed to the unscrambler.

Classic & Compact


The Lanfranchi ECO unscrambler is ideal for low speeds. Suitable for all types of PET and HDPE containers. ECO is a range of compact machines for low and medium speeds and at a contained cost, able to maintain the same level of technical efficiency and quality of high performance machines. All of the parts touching the product are stainless steel. The facility of visual control and access to the various machine parts was prioritized. Format change is easy to perform. The overall footprint is reduced. The main motor, that of the elevator belt and outfeed table-top conveyor belt, is always controlled by the frequency inverter to allow a careful regulation of its functioning.



Thanks to the Unscrambler 2.0 it is possible to increase the efficiency of the production lines by performing a format change in a very short time without the presence of an operator.


Robotic unscrambler

The Lanfranchi robotized unscrambler represents a revolutionary innovation in plastic container handling. Format change is fast, lasting about 3 minutes. The robotized unscrambler does not need any additional external container orientation system. Thanks to suitable lighting of the feed conveyor belt, the cameras read container orientation and position. The vision system sends the pick signal to the Robots through the Pick Master tracking software for synchronization.

Format change is completely automatic and is carried out by the operator through the three commands described below:

  1. Activation of the emptying procedure, to evacuate all of the containers of the previous production.
  2. New format selection.
  3. Conveyor side guide selection.

The system can handle different formats through the creation of a specific menu for each new format.
The menu can be provided directly by Lanfranchi or developed by the Customer after a training course provided by a Lanfranchi engineer.

Technical characteristics of the Lanfranchi robotized system:

  • No additional external container orientation system is required.
  • It is equipped with an intelligent vision, pick-up and tracking system.
  • Great adaptability to types of containers which, generally, cannot be handled with a traditional system.
  • Greatly reduced maintenance costs.
  • Gentle and precise handling of the container during pick-up and positioning operations.


With the Pharma Lanfranchi series, all versions of unscrambler units can be updated to meet the strict cleaning and hygiene specifications required by the pharmaceutical industry.
