Soft-placement module

Article-Soft-placement module

New soft placement modules for secure, efficient packing of bottles in a range of industries are compatible with several of the co.'s case-packer models. The soft-placement module with advanced motion control gently lowers bottles into cases or trays without damage to the label, closure or container integrity. With its steady, precise placement, the soft-placement module eliminates bottle-to-bottle scuffing and breakage, with or without partitions. The unique servo system accelerates bottles downward, then comes to a gradual, decelerated stop as the heels of the bottles reach the bottom of the case. The packed cases are then indexed to the discharge conveyor and the soft-placement module ascends into position for the next cycle.
