Nercon has manufactured both non-powered and powered star-wheel devices. Product back-pressure causes the non-powered star-wheels to turn and reorient the package. The device can also be used for product timing.
Depending on the product, special engineering may be needed to transport product entering and exiting the star-wheel device to make sure the package is handled carefully and maintains its integrity throughout the reorientation.
Star-wheel devices are specially designed for the application, product specifications and line speeds. They can be designed to be interchangable and removable.
Starwheel devices are designed for the specific production and application.
