A new rack open divider placing technology maintains control of a bottle divider from the time bottles are picked from the magazine until it is placed between the products, increasing case-packing production speeds to 60 cycles/min. Higher speeds are achieved by adding more divider placers. The enhanced control also ensures accurate blank placement between products for uninterrupted operation and increased operating efficiencies. The magazine is conveniently located for easy access when loading blanks, eliminating overhead blank loading and improving ergonomics. Quick-attach replacement heads are all that's needed when changing product sizes, resulting in quick, tool-free changeovers.
