Lanfranchi has released an Evolution Kit to upgrade existing Lanfranchi plastic bottle unscrambler machines. The kit includes a ground breaking vacuum starwheel with Laco adjustable changeover equipment.
The Evolution Kit comes as a preassembled unit and upgrading existing bottle unscramblers means a reduction in changeover time by 75% to only 15 minutes.
The vacuum starwheel has increased flexibility in terms of operating limits, decreasing product jams and enabling the bottle unscrambler machine to work with lighter weight bottles.
All bottle sizes can use the same extractors while the need for mechanical extractors is eliminated by the method of extraction. Bottles are extracted out of the separator via the vacuum generated by the starwheel.
A simple movement of the preset knob on the Laco channel adjusts the container size and minimises user error.
