MG America has introduced the ACE-BT300 Coding & Verification Unit, an integrated system for bottle serialization. The machine, which can provide track & trace capabilities as granular as unit-level, can handle round, square and rectangular bottles from 22-120mm in diameter at a maximum speed of 300 per minute. Bottle coding on the ACE-BT300 can be performed either bottom-up or down. Positive bottle indexing and transportation is assured, as serve-driven side belts provide accurate speed management and position control throughout the process. The machine offers single-point adjustment for complete format changeovers, and bottle rejection is performed via linear motor-driven shaft.
Other features of the ACE-BT300 include:
- Stainless steel machine frame and electrical cabinet
- No pneumatic components
- Reject verification
- Unit can be supplied with Rockwell/Allen Bradley components
