Servo-Controlled Rotary Pocket Bottle Unscrambler - Model SRP

 

The model SRP premium Bottle Unscrambler is the preferred choice for clients wishing to benefit from industry-leading performance and minimal downtime within an amazingly compact footprint.  Clients also turn to the SRP Bottle Unscrambler whenever they seek to integrate additional technologies into the packaging line, such as desiccant feeding or print-and-inspect stations for brand protection. Additional highlights:

  • Servo Controls - absolute position data for precise control and feedback; coordinated motion (when applicable); faster speeds; fewer sensors
  • Enhanced Guards Package - Interlocked guards; full-length doors
  • Sound Abatement Package - Fully enclosed frame; thick polycarbonate panels and doors; foam-rubber bulb seal gaskets; enhanced door latches for a tighter gasket seal; acoustic covers for all air nozzles; enclosed valve pack with gauge window
  • Stainless Steel Construction
 
 

SRP Unscrambler with Integral Desiccant Feeding

 

This servo-controlled container handling machine relies on absolute positioning to dispense canister desiccants (or oxygen absorbers) into unscrambled bottles.

Omega offers a variety of dispensing options depending on the machine speed, desiccant size, bottle opening, and desired tolerances.  In addition, Omega can help you choose the optimal canister storage and delivery system based on your requirements and floor space. An integrated desiccant feeder is a great alternative to buying and shoehorning additional standalone canister feeders into your packaging line.

SRP Unscrambler with Integral Print and Vision

 

Omega partners with many camera, printer and data management companies to integrate print and vision capability into its bottle unscrambling, orienting and packaging machines. Omega has significant experience with Continuous Inkjet (CIJ), Thermal Inkjet (TIJ), Laser, and UV printing on the tops, bottoms and sides of containers. Plus, the SRP Bottle Unscrambler can provide added security with an integrated reject system to ensure that only acceptable bottles exit the machine.

Be sure to visit UnitLevel.com, Omega's brand protection division, for a closer look at Omega's SRP Intelli-Sort, which is designed to print and verify 2D data matrices, or other codes, for serialization and aggregation applications.

Puck Handling Bottle Unscrambler - Model PRP

 

Some bottle shapes are too small, thin, asymmetrical or irregular to stand upright on a fast-moving conveyor. The model PRP Unscrambler, also referred to as a Pucker, can place these bottles into custom-designed stabilizing pucks, which help support the bottles as they travel along a packaging line.

Be sure to ask Omega about its Puck Design and Fabrication services.

De-Pucker

 

Typically, bottles get removed from their stabilizing pucks near the end of the line, once the product has been filled and capped. Omega's Depuckers use the same, reliable rotary pocket technology to gently lift and separate a bottle from its puck. The rotary pockets have minimal point-to-point contact with the bottles, which ensures positive handling and protection for pre-labeled and pre-printed bottle finishes.

The Depucker also serves as an Orienter, whereby it can orient a bottle 180 degrees after removal from the puck. This feature is commonly used for tottle-style bottles.

The machine is equipped with an infeed conveyor with a helix screw to provide timing into the rotary pockets and to control line pressures.

Be sure to ask Omega about its Puck Design and Fabrication services.
