A new automated take-away system for PET bottles is said to provide increased throughput and flexibility. The SUBTA (Stand Up Bottle Take Away) system from Motion Controls Robotics Inc., Fremont, Ohio, permits in-line bottle handling and unloading for coating, leak testing, case packing, and palletizing. The SUBTA system grabs bottles and sets them upright on a conveyor. The programmable system handles any mold configuration (single- or double-row) and uses quick-change tooling. The system rolls away from the molding machine for easy mold changes. The operator panel has a menu selection system and joystick for set-up and on-the-fly adjustments.
