VTF 2000 Transfer Unit

The VTF – 2000 Transfer Unit is purposely designed for handling containers produced on TG and QG production machines. The gradual collection of the containers at the entrance to the transfer, along with a smooth, large radius curve and unique finger motion at the exit, ensures that bottles are transferred onto the cross conveyor accurately.

Features and Benefits:

  • 2 finger sizes
  • 4 finger spacing configurations
  • Designed for TG or QG production
  • Unique finger retract system
  • ‘Quick Change’ fingers
  • Transfers containers from 40mm to 96mm diameter
  • Adjustable top and bottom ware guides
  • Spacing reduced job set-up time
  • Enhanced container stability
  • Recommend to be used in conjunction with independent Belt Drive.
  • Reliable cross conveyor spacing
  • Minimal spares holding
  • Round containers – consistent ware handling up to 1,000 BPM
  • Flask production at 300 – 400 BPM
