Model 3722 Autobagger for plastic bottles
Dyco is a pioneer in empty bottle handling
The model 3722 Autobagger is typically used to bag small unstable containers at high speeds, over 200 bottles per minute. Containers are conveyed on two lanes of table-top conveyor into the machine, where rows are isolated. Once the two rows of containers are in position a precision servo driven head picks up two rows of containers, indexes sideways, matching speed with a mat-top conveyor and gently places the containers on the mat-top conveyor. The two rows of containers are then conveyed on the mat-top conveyor into a rectangular array. Once the containers are accumulated into a rectangular array, the array is pushed into a wall of film that wraps around the array and the trailing side of the array is sealed. The containers are then conveyed into a side sealing area where both sides of the film are tensioned and sealed, forming the bag around the containers with Dyco's unique flat film technology. Once the bundle is formed it is then conveyed to a pick-up location. From this position a precision servo driven stacker picks up the bundle, rotates or indexes linearly, and gently places the bundle on a stack. Once a full stack of bundles is accumulated in one of the stack locations a beacon indicator alerts an operator to take away a full bundle stack. The operator then resets that stack location.
- Row forming infeed pick & place system, consistently achieving speeds of over 200 containers per minute
- Vacuum capable infeed and row forming area to ensure container and array stability
- Inline design provides high bottle feeding rates while maintaining array stability for packaging
