  • High-volume operation in a small footprint machine

  • Wide speed and container range

  • NO-DROP container handling maintains package integrity


A-B-C's machine offers quick and gentle bottle unloading from reshipper cases with a robotic technology that gently grips and lifts bottles from cases and places them on the takeaway conveyor. Synchronized operation keeps containers under complete control during uncasing to maintain optimum container quality and integrity. This machine is a proven solution for reliable handling of glass and plastic containers.


  • Gentle product handling and precise operation

  • Unpack and single file many container styles

  • Intelligent Control for accurate placement


Robotic Action Ensures Gentle Handling

Containers are not dropped, but are gently lowered to the bottom of the case, providing

  • Improved bottle stability when handling lightweight plastic containers

  • Reduced risk of breakage when handling glass

  • Gentle handling of heavy, industrial-sized containers


The pick and place operation is servo-driven for precise container placement without label damage or container scuffing. Offers packagers the option to use thin-wall containers without sacrificing packaging performance.


Intelligent Control for Top Performance

Non-contact sensors monitor decasing operation, providing instant response to changing conditions. All machine actions are controlled by PLC for precise operation.


Robotic uncasing head is programmed to travel the shortest path from conveyor to case and back, for maximum speed and efficiency.


Features to Ensure Gentle Product Handling

Containers are firmly controlled from conveyor to case, utilizing a variety of container grippers depending on the product.


The gripping mechanisms space the containers during transfer to accommodate case partitions and ensure smooth packing with no bottle contact.


Designed for Quick Changeover

Changeover is a simple three step process: adjust or replace container gripper assembly, slide product guide rails to accommodate the new containers, and select the new container on the control panel.


Gentle Container Handling

After all four flaps are automatically opened, the case is conveyed upward and the containers glide to the transfer table. They remain in their pack pattern, spaced and separate, until single filed with minimum container contact.


This technique reduces the risk of breakage when running glass, and minimizes the risk of downed bottles when running lightweight plastic.
