Principle of Operation

Once compressed air is supplied to the pick-up head the grip tube is inflated and clamps the product.
When the compressed air supply is stopped, the check valve closes the air-inlet. The rapid outlet is opened and supplied air is vented out, this then releases the product (bottle).
