The stand-alone bottle unscrambler machine, BU 300 is perfect for feeding different-sized round or square paper and plastic bottles in small or medium batches upright onto a production line. This maximum flexibility is provided by allowing quick and easy part-free format changeovers. High speed and gentle bottle handling are made possible by the BU 300’s highly efficient process. The balcony design makes maintenance and cleaning simple. The central intuitive operating system with SmartControl, enables user-friendly operation, easy audit-trail reporting, statistics and connectivity to other machines. All these factors contribute to the particularly high economic efficiency of the automatic bottle unscrambler.

Silent operation and high efficiency

The BU 300 achieves high-speed and gentle bottle handling through its spring-supported belts and highly efficient sorting bowl. Furthermore the centrifugal sorting bowl has no sorting bowl brush for a more silent production environment. The bottle elevator, which is integrated into the bottle unscrambler machine, has dedicated noise-reducing covers and a silent drop station, seamlessly feeding bottles into the sorting bowl with minimal noise disruption. In addition, the BU 300 is equipped with a spring-loaded belt control that easily accommodates deviations in bottle size. This innovative feature ensures stable settings for constant bottle grip and total process control, further enhancing efficiency and reliability. Complemented by a large 700-liter hopper, the bottle unscrambler guarantees long refill intervals, maximizing uptime and productivity in your production line.

Flexible and efficient bottle unscrambler

Simplify maintenance and cleaning thanks to the balcony design of the bottle unscrambler machine. In addition, the BU 300 offers quick and tool-free format changeovers, enabling effortless transitions between production runs. Whether handling small or medium batch mixes of bottles, this feature provides unmatched flexibility. Programmable variable rotational speed and reverse jam control guarantee precise bottle feeding into the alignment system, minimizing disruptions. Components such as the bottle laying over cam and hook, bottle flipping downward cam for optional bottle air rinsing, and the upward cam enhance efficiency and streamline operations, contributing to increased productivity and operational excellence.

SmartControl operating system

Unlock the full potential of your automatic bottle unscrambler machine with the central intuitive SmartControl operating system. Navigate seamlessly through operations, generate comprehensive audit-trail reports, and access real-time statistics with unparalleled ease and precision. Accurately track downtime, production time, and waiting time, while effortlessly entering batch orders to maintain operational efficiency. Rest assured with integrated UPS providing robust backup and recovery capabilities, ensuring uninterrupted operations and safeguarding against potential disruptions.

A flexible production line

The BU 300 is one of the six stand-alone machines Cremer and Uhlmann have developed for a complete production line to count solid dose pills. Seamlessly integrate processes and harness the power of data with Pexcite, Uhlmann‘s proprietary software platform. This powerful software platform enables seamless communication and coordination between machines, ensuring enhanced connectivity, transparency, and safety throughout your production line. Monitor and manage the entire production process with precision and ease, from unscrambling bottles, adding desiccant, counting tablets, capping and retorquing, to achieve unparalleled efficiency and performance.

Optional features

Enhance your production capabilities of the bottle unscrambler with optional features including:

  • Bottle cleaning with triple ionized blowing air nozzles for static and foreign particle removal
  • Domino Ax Series bottle bottom code printer and verification system
  • Passive and active bottle reject systems for quality assurance
