Open Basket Carrier Line
Depending on the filling capacity, the open basket carrier line consists of one or two TLA basket erectors, a TLW diverter, a TLE carton inserter and the conveying system.
A TLA basket erector opens up to 140 Baskets/min. These are then divided between two lines by means of the TLW diverter and brought into 2x2 formations prior to the TLE basket inserter. These formations are then placed in a shipping box that is arranged to be opened from the customer and introduced from underneath into the TLE basket inserter. Then the insertion of the bottles is done on the customer side into the shipping boxes with the open baskets inside.
A unit of this type can handle 6x and 4x Baskets by means of suitable format parts. The capacity of an open basket carrier line with 1 TLA, 1 TLW and 1 TLE corresponds to a filling capacity of around 50,000 bottles/min. The capacity of an open basket carrier line with 2 TLA, 1 TLW and 1 TLE corresponds to a filling capacity of around 72,000 bottles/min.
