Rotary Puck Inserter / Remover

The Simplimatic® Rotary Puck Inserter automatically inserts and removes containers into pucks at a rate of up to 300 units per minute. Changeover parts are easily removed and replaced to make transitions between production runs more efficient. The unit is a continuous rotary motion machine that gently inserts containers into pucks.

Pucks enter an in-feed star wheel and are transferred to the main turret star wheel where inserters delicately place the product into the puck. The puck and product are then transferred onto a discharge conveyor using the star wheel.

Each Simplimatic system is custom-tailored to ensure the perfect fit in a large variety of production lines. Simplimatic’s team designs to suit various puck sizes and shapes, various line configurations and speeds, and more. Each piece of puck-handling equipment is tailored to ensure maximum line speed, and minimum line downtime is met.

  • The Perfect Fit – This custom engineered solution can designed to handle nearly any puck size or shape
  • Customizable – Offered with custom controls, software programming, accessories, and features to ensure each product perfectly serves every unique customer need
