The Omega Design fully automatic robotic unscrambler provides smarter sorting by utilizing a parallel-kinematic, multi-axis, pick-and-place robot module, which separates, orients, and positions bottles onto a conveyor or into stabilizing pucks.

The automatic unscrambler can be used for applications running complex or multiple bottle shapes, including an array of containers, bottles, tottles, jars, vials, jugs, and tubes. The limited number of changeover points reduces setup times, while the integrated hopper minimizes the unit’s footprint. The conveying system is has an intelligent infeed metering control that reduces the recirculation of bottles.

The machine combines speed and accuracy via Omega Design’s dual infeed system, which presents two containers at once to the unit’s robotic arms from a single hopper, optimizing the robotic arms’ movements and yielding higher throughputs. The setup also minimizes the machine’s overall floorspace footprint.

The robotic unscrambler can be configured to meet a range of capacity needs and speeds, including increased hopper capacity. Additional robot modules increase speeds by up to 90 containers per min per robot.

The machine features a user-friendly 15-in. touchscreen HMI, a Rockwell Automation Optix visualization platform, and an Allen Bradley integrated safety programmable logic controller (PLC). Rapid, repeatable pushbutton changeover with a limited number of change points helps diminish downtime between new product runs.

“Introducing a fully automatic robotics unscrambler applicable to a wide variety of containers aligns with our ongoing mission to produce equipment solutions that simplify processes through reduced labor requirements and intuitive operation,” says Glenn Siegele, president of Omega Design. “Importantly, the machine also comes in a modular design that can be configured to meet the specific needs of every customer.”
