Simplify Denesting

The Wedge Wheel Clamshell Denester from Lakewood Process Machinery offers a number of benefits to growers and packers with its built-to-order cartridge design. The Wedge Wheel system comes with a simple frame that can be mounted onto nearly any existing index conveyor and accepts any Lakewood Wedge Wheel denester cartridge. Each cartridge is designed to a container's specific footprint, offering extreme precision in clamshell denesting. The denester does not need to be adjusted when switching to a different container size. It is available for a variety of different container shapes and sizes, both lidless and lidded. The machine is rated to denest over 300 containers per minute, and the clamshell-specific cartridges guarantee fewer doubles. Each system includes a single denester frame and any number of container-specific denester cartridges.
