There are various methods that can be used in a packaging production line for standing up or reorienting a package. Depending on the application, Nercon has engineered:
In the video, a simple configuration of the rail and conveyor design was engineered into the layout to provide carton reorientation.
Nercon refers to this device as a Gravity Upender; a simple solution for handling the reorientation of a carton that is cost effective. As the rail opening decreases, the cartons just drop onto the take-away conveyor which is positioned at a lower height. Gravity is the only force in reorienting the package. This concept can be designed to present packages in a stand-up, lay-down or long edge conveying position.
