The Dyco model 2552 debagger is extremely versatile, offering the unique capability to handle square, rectangular and round container types, yet still providing easy change over between container types. The operator places a bundle on the back of the machine in the slit and strip area. The operator feeds the bag into a hooked safety knife and depresses a foot pedal. The foot pedal actuates a pneumatic cylinder to which the knife is mounted, which travels across the side of the bundle, cutting one edge of the bundle open. The operator then pulls the bag from the containers opposite the knife location, stripping the bag off the bundle. Once the bag is removed from the bundles, the operator actuates the lift gate with another foot pedal. The lift gate opens and the containers travel down a mat top accumulation conveyor to the feed end of the machine. Once the containers are clear, the gate lowers and the knife returns to it’s home position. Square and rectangular containers travel down the mat top conveyor to the feed end of the machine and hit the backer bar. The backer bar works in conjunction with a “hold down” mechanism that holds the previous row of containers back, eliminating interference and pressure from the row being discharged. Once the hold down is in place the backer bar retracts and the brake gate opens allowing containers flow out of the machine on table top conveyor. When running round containers, bottles travel down a mat top chain and are funneled onto a table top conveyor. There is a side mounted, low back pressure, tabletop conveyor to orient the containers such that they can be discharged form the machine in a single row.
