AIR Springs Supply Pty Ltd has introduced to Australia pneumatic palletising bottle grippers made from hot vulcanised elastomer coated fabrics.

The tough but highly flexible Pronal MC and ML grippers are produced by the same high technology company that made the buoyancy bags used to lift heavy sections of the vessel Titanic from depths of 3900m beneath the Atlantic.

Available in standard sizes of 1230mm and 1460mm, special lengths are available on request.

The grippers are suitable for use with plastic and glass bottles used for a wide range of foodstuffs and beverages.

The first application in Australia of this internationally proven technology has brought speed and efficiency benefits to the wine industry, according to Air Supply. It has enhanced safety and productivity by reducing breakages.

Pronal grippers are typically used in multiple banks of gripping lengths configured to user requirements. They are highly compatible to rapid automated bottling and packaging systems.

Their flexibility accommodates minor variations in bottle positioning during rapid movement, further enhancing their use in modern high speed production lines.

Some bottles or flasks of complex shapes can be palletised with the Pronal MCC or MLC ranges.
