Case size variations are no problem for the Model 49 decaser, which automatically unloads glass or plastic bottles and containers from necks-down reshipper cases, single files the containers and uprights the emptied cases to be conveyed to the case packer at speeds to 75 cases per minute. The new soft roller system that transfers cases through unloading utilizes an automatic tensioner combined with soft compression rollers to accommodate varying case dimensions and ensure smooth and gentle case transfer.
The case turnover offers finger-style grippers that bend to hold cases securely during 180-degree transfer to the overhead discharge conveyor. The fingers bend to grip the cases, easily adjusting to cases that are slightly smaller or larger than spec. These features are standard on the new Model 49 case unloader, and available as a conversion kit for earlier A-B-C unloader models.
