The Omni-Line M500, shown here running 16-ounce PET dressing bottles at 200 bottles per minute. In the rotating disk, bottles are spun by centripetal force into neck-leading and base-leading positions for introduction to the infeed tooling. The rotary bumper displaces misaligned bottles back to the rotating disk. Neck-leading and base-leading bottles are captured by the infeed belt for transfer to the hook mechanism.
Neck-leading bottles are hooked into base-leading position. Base-leading bottles push past the hook. Once standing, the bottles are stabilized for exit to the customer’s conveyor. Bottles exit the unscrambler on the customer’s conveyor, ready for the next process in the filling line.
