Automatic Monoblock - MINI version

Mod. 2005A-MTG/10
Corking (champagne corks/ wine corks) + Wire-hooding machine.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

The Automatic Monoblock - Mini Version includes in a single machine the functions of corking and wire-hooding. 

Designed and realized to meet the needs of the small to average productions, it can reach a maximum throughput of 1.500 bottles/hour.

Besides the champagne cork the machine can process also wine corks (without further modifications to the corking head), depending on the customer’s needs.  

The parts of the machine are driven through a transmission gear controlled through a reducer and an electrical motor.

The bottles are introduced in the machine through a mechanically operated spacing starwheel.  Is possible the application of a spacing screw unit consisting of the supports + the screw (see Options).  

The format change of the bottles consists in substituting the central carrousel, the conveyor, the bottle lift piston of the wire-hooding unit and its reduction ring and the screw or starwhell.

The bottles are conveyed through a central carrousel and pistons positioning them under the corking and wire-hooding heads.

The machine needs to be fed continuously with compressed air since some devices of the corking and wire-hooding heads are operated pneumatically.

The machine can be equipped with devices checking the correct position of the wire-hood and of a device controlling the bottle accumulation at the discharge (at cost). 

The speed of the Monoblock can be varied with an electronic variable speed drive (INVERTER) positioned on the motor, which by means of a potentiometer on the switchboard, allows more precise and sensitive speed variation. (from the minimum to the maximum throughput). 

 

The automatic corking unit is suitable for the application of natural champagne corks, both unidirectional and bidirectional types, with max. ø of 30mm. The closing system of the corking unit consists of 4 jaws of hardened and ground stainless steel with centesimal tolerances running on bronze sliders and easily demountable for cleaning and sterilization; a nozzle with phased blow provides cleaning of the cork  compression and insertion drawer. The movement of the corking head is obtained through a central cam of acetal resin and cams working in axis. Unidirectional corks are fed manually in the exact position or through an orienting unit (separate machine) supplied on demand and with extra price. In case the champagne corks used were bidirectional, with an extra price it is possible to supply the machine  with a built-in automatic feeder.

 

The automatic wire-hooding unit is suitable for the application of 4-post wire-hoods with or without cap. The wire-hooding machine is operated partly mechanically and partly pneumatically.

As basic equipment, for the loading of the wire-hoods the machine bears a wire-hood magazine of revolver type MINI version with a capacity of 1000 hoods. As an alternative, on demand and with extra price, it is possible to equip the machine with a wire-hood magazine of revolver type with a capacity of 1,500 wire hoods.

The distribution of the wire-hoods is made through a pneumatically operated selector separating the wire-hoods and loading them on the 2 gripping/seizing heads (manufactured to measure) supplied with the machine for the processing of 1 type of wire-hood. Other types of wire-hoods (different sizes, with or without cap, etc.) need additional heads that can be supplied in basic version or with rapid connection device called wire-hood head connection unit.  

The wire-hood is positioned and oriented through the vertical movement given by the piston and gives the champagne corks its final shape, after that the twister closes it and forms the eyelet. 

 

CONSTRUCTIVE FEATURES

The model 2005A-MTG/10 is completely manufactured with stainless steel, food-grade plastic materials, for foodstuff use, and steel alloys. All  components of the machine are accessible to facilitate cleaning and maintenance, so guaranteeing long term duration.

The machine is equipped with Safety guards and Certificate of conformity compliant to the EC regulations.
