  • The gripper head can be changed to suit different bottle neck sizes
  • Can handle short side or long side leading crates, in single or twin lanes
  • Many possible configurations



For the crate infeed, the Decamatic automatic decrater has crate conveyors and a centering device. The crate conveyors may be single or double lane, while the mobile centering device aligns the crates so that they are in a correct position, thus allowing accurate bottle pick-up. The device consists of a folded metal frame with vertical movement driven by independent pneumatic cylinders.

The advantages of the Decamatic automatic decrater include:

  • Very gentle and accurate bottle feeding operations.
  • Sturdy stainless-steel structure.
  • Reliable functioning.
  • Gentle product handling.
  • Smooth movement and reduced wear via smart pneumatic cylinders.
  • Flexible system for different bottle necks.
  • Full and easy control of all the machine's parameters.
  • Ergonomic access and operator safety.
