The pens are loaded into the magazine. A specially designed mechanism provides automatic loading of each single pen on the conveyor chain. This system is designed with proprietary double chains with “V” fins to optimize seamless throughput of pens.
At this point the orientation system determines if pen rotation is required. This is accomplished by a pneumatic “lift and rotate” device.
Just after the pen orientation station there is Pre-Registration Station. This device provides automatic rotations of the pen so that the clip will be aligned continuously at the same angle.
This operation is fundamental to guarantee perfectly aligned marking.
Finally, thanks to the large size of the warehouse, it is possible to load up to 400 pieces and affect them up to 3000 per hour.
