M156 decaser pp

Bottle uncaser for many styles

This machine automatically unpacks many styles of glass and plastic containers from necks-down reshipper cases and ensures a continuous supply of empty bottles to the packaging line. A dependable solution to uncasing irregular containers including flasks, jugs and jars, this decaser opens all four case flaps then gently unloads containers with no drop to ensure top stability and integrity. The decaser automatically monitors container flow and adjusts the decasing speed to ensure a continuous fill rate and harmonious operation regardless of line speed variations.

  • Run many styles of glass and plastic: rounds, non-rounds, ovals, flasks, jugs and jars
  • Eliminate hand labor and reduce production costs
  • Maintain a consistent container supply to the filler 

  • Ensure gentle handling to reduce container damage and instability

Features and Benefits

  • Operation

    Operation Only this decaser offers A-B-C's exclusive design that automatically opens all four flaps, allowing containers to glide gently from the case to the unloading belt as the case is lifted. Containers are under complete control throughout for maximum container stability.
  • Replace hand labor and associated risks

    Replace hand labor and associated risks
The Model 156 automatically opens all four flaps, unloads and single files the containers, anduprights the empty case for transfer to packing.

    This offers ergonomic advantages by eliminating the risk of employee injury or disability from repetitively lifting and dumping filled cases.

  • Run many container styles

    Run many container styles This decaser runs a wide range of glass and plastic containers, including round, non-round, oval, flask, and special shapes, in many container heights.

    It has special features to accommodate lightweight plastic containers and small, lightweight glass containers.

  • Ensure a consistent container supply

    Ensure a consistent container supply
Cases may feed directly from the case depalletizer to the decaser, and are oriented automatically for proper feed. Several case inverter styles are available, depending on the application.

    Cases are automatically timed into the decaser from back-to-back or spaced conveyor orientation, to ensure proper case feed.

  • Gentle container handling

    Gentle container handling
After all four flaps are automatically opened, the case is conveyed upward and the containers glide to the transfer table. They remain in their pack pattern, spaced and separate, until single filed with minimum container contact.

    This technique minimizes the risk of breakage when running glass, and downed bottles when running lightweight plastic.
