TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS
The Automatic wire-hooding mod. 2002A-2TR/10, was designed and manufactured to meet the needs of low to average productions.

The machine is available in TWO VERSIONS, that differ solely due to its reduced output per hour of the bottles. The components, the mechanical mechanisms and the functioning of the machinery are not altered and have the same level of quality.

• Version 2,800 bottles/h
• Version 1,500 bottles/h

The Automatic Wire Hooder is suitable for the application of 4-post wire-hoods with or without cap on glass containers with ø ranging from 55 to 115 mm and heights from 190 to 370mm; in fact, thanks to its turret with height adjustment through a knob on the rear side, the machine allows processing various bottle formats.
On demand and with the necessary modifications, it can process bigger bottles.   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. In case of productions over 1.500 bottles/hour the performance of the machine can be remarkably improved by mounting a screw unit consisting of the supports + the screw (on demand with extra price, see Options).

The bottle format change is made by substituting the  central carrousel, the conveyor and the screw, if any; besides, it is necessary to substitute the bottle lifting piston and its reduction ring (at cost, see Options).  
The bottles are conveyed through a central carrousel and pistons positioning them under the wire-hooding head.
The machine needs to be fed continuously with compressed air since some devices are operated pneumatically.
As basic equipment, for the loading of the wire-hoods the machine bears two distribution channels interchangeable alternatively, which are pre-loaded with wire-hoods to guarantee a reserve of 250 wire-hoods each.
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 or with a magazine loadable from the bottom having a capacity of 2,500 wire-hoods (see Options).

The distribution of the wire-hoods is made through a pneumatically controlled selector allowing separating the wire-hoods and loading them in the 2 seizing heads (manufactured to measure) supplied on the standard machine for 1 type of wire-hood.
Other types of wire-hoods (different sizes, with or without cap, etc.) require additional heads that can be supplied in simple version or equipped with rapid connection device called wire-hood head connection unit (see Options).
Through the vertical movement of the bottle given by the piston the wire-hood is positioned and oriented to give the champagne corks their final shape, after that the twister closes the wire-hood forming the eyelet.
At the entrance the standard machine is equipped with a micro-switch detecting the presence of the bottle (on demand and with extra price it is possible to substitute it with a photocell).
The standard machine is also equipped with a photocell detecting the missing cork/bottle.

The machine can be equipped with devices detecting the presence of the wire-hood and/or controlling the bottle accumulation at the discharge (at cost, see Options).
The speed of the Wire-hooder can be varied with a knob on the rear side of the machine.
On demand and with extra price, (see Options), it is possible to mount 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).

 

MANUFACTURING FEATURES
The model 2002A-2TR/10 is completely manufactured in stainless steel and plastic materials, for foodstuff use, and steel alloys. All the machine components can be easily inspected to completely facilitate cleaning and maintenance, guaranteeing long term duration.
