Sheppee International – Innovative solutions for Glass Production
As the only company in the world solely dedicated to hot glass container handling in both the hollow and tableware sectors, Sheppee International is at the industry’s forefront in container transferring, conveying and lehr loading solutions.
The Company has an unrivalled portfolio of transfers for radial and parallel applications. Each unit is designed to handle a “type” of container – from the smallest pharmaceutical through the largest Champagne, to flasks and non-round bottles.
A simple, robust cross conveyor can be supplied to suit all lehr widths and open or “hooded” lehr fronts. Height adjustable and with the facility to adjust the idle end roller assembly and each lehr dead plate individually, the unit is adaptable to most production line layouts.
Harnessing the latest servo technology, a range of 2-Axis and 3-Axis lehr loaders has been developed, giving maximum reliability in both cases, and job storage and production flexibility in the case of the 3-axis machines. Sheppee can furnish a 6-AXIS drive system on I.S. Machine and Press lines, where a completely synchronous ware handling package is needed, controlling the synchronisation, handling and positioning of containers from machine delivery conveyor through to lehr belt.
