Everyone has seen and used plastic squeeze bottles for beverages like Gatorade and water. They are ubiquitous at all types of sporting events around the globe. Hundreds of millions of these pieces are constructed annually.
For bottling plants, they need the ability to produce bottles quickly because their volume and turn-around time is short. If this is the issue your business faces, there is only one solution that will work: a rotary turret continuous motion machine. These systems are designed to produce between 400 and 800 parts per minute. When special design considerations are made, the system can create more than 1,800 pieces per minute. Pallet-transfer and rotary indexing machines produce only 15 to 250 parts per minute.
It has automated assembly machinery that has an intermittent motion system my pause assembly periodically while specific actions are performed. On the other hand, a continuous motion machine never stops moving or assembling. That is why it is so much quicker than intermittent motion.
Continuous motion machines are based on three main elements:
- Feed system for the push-pull spout
- Feed system for over-cap
- Rotating assembly turrets
Parts constructed with this type of assembly are typically round and symmetrical, but they do not have to be. Use these systems when you need parts that get snapped or pushed together.
