Bottle pick-up heads

September 1, 2004




Anver's bottle pick-up heads feature air-powered internal bladders that pick up bottles from the top of the neck and attach and release in milliseconds. Made from rubber and urethane compounds, the grabs require 15 psi compressed air and operate in a closed circuit controlled by standard pneumatic logic valves. The company says the product is compatible with all major lines of bottling and packaging systems and is field serviceable by hand. Applications include handling soft drinks, beer, wine, spirits and food containers in high-speed automation systems.
