Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1445038A2] Method for sorting out of faulty bottles from bottle crates placed on a crate transporting belt (1), whereby bottles (12) detected as faulty using a detection arrangement are removed from a crate (10) using a hydraulic gripper and placed in a buffer crate (20). When the buffer crate is full it is replaced on the main belt where it is ejected from the production line. An independent claim is made for a bottle removing arrangement comprising a number of grippers (70), whereby each gripper comprises a hydraulic cylinder drive and each gripper can be individually controlled and individually raised and lowered.
