Sheppee International Limited is a world leader in Hot Glass Ware Handling for both the container and tableware industries, supplying innovative and dependable solutions in the field of hot container conveying, transferring, lehr loading and glass contact materials for more than 80 years.
Specialist equipment has been developed including a range of 2 and 3 axis servo-driven lehr loaders suitable for all types of production. Most recently, the company has introduced a patented lehr belt tracking feature to eliminate container base defects at the critical cross conveyor to lehr belt transition area.
The company has engineered a full range of ware transfer units, suitable for handling the smallest pharmaceutical containers up to the largest champagne bottles, including dedicated units suitable for handling flask and non-round containers. An integrated, intermediate conveyor transfer system has been launched for ultra-high-speed production.
To underline Sheppee’s “total ware handling” approach, the 6-Axis ware handling system offers the container manufacturer synchronisation, handling and positioning of containers after the sweep out through to the loading of the lehr, controlled by a single Windows-based operator interface mounted at the rear of the Lehr loader, or alternatively installed remotely in an IEC standard control cabinet.
