Model 360 unpacker/case packer from A-B-C Packaging performs both functions, uncasing and case packing, via a servo-operated robotic-style transfer head. With every cycle, two separate actions occur simultaneously. As the head lowers into the case, filled bottles are packed and empty bottles are gripped for unloading. As the head reaches the conveyor, the empty containers are deposited for transfer to filling and additional filled containers are picked up for packing. It operates at cycle speeds up to 12 per minute and may be designed to pack and unpack multiple cases per minute for increased volume. It occupies 56 sq. ft. of floor space.
