Inverters and Feeder Units

Inverters

InverterThe Inverter is a most significant contribution to the improved handling of bottles, cans, cartons, tins and many other articles in high volume production in all parts of the industrial world.

Its design concept and its practical application are so simple and logical that any production process which needs the products normal upright position to the changed can now be integrated with a smooth continuous flow.

Palletising, de-palletising, washing, rinsing, draining, drying, air-jetting, inspection, mixing, coding and labeling are just some of the operations in which the inverter can be used in the bottling and packaging fields. These, and many other processes in other industries can be added to the scope of this very simple and efficient product.

The inverter can be designed to give any change of position from upright to inverted (and vice versa) and any intermediate angle the process may need and can give any required sequence of position changes.

There is no practical limit to the size, shape and nature of articles which can be handled. Any component which is already in high volume production is a likely candidate for improved efficiency with the Inverter in the production line. The range of applications throughout all industries is almost infinite.

Feeder Units

Feeder UnitThe feeder unit was originally designed to help accommodate customers who could not create enough line pressure with their conveyor system to feed containers through the inverter. Since then it has been used by numerous customers for a whole host of different applications. The feeder unit has been used as a transfer system over crossovers and dead plates.

Containers can be transported across gaps in conveyors with no rotational motion from the container, allowing them to be date coded or barcoded with an ink-jet system onto the container base.

The feeder unit is attached to the side of an existing conveyor and is fully adjustable in and out. The unit can be supplied with variable speed drive and remote switching to stop and start pro rata line requirements. As with the changeparts, our engineers are available to deliver, fit and commission your inverter and feeder unit if required.
