Screw Orienters or Feedscrews are used mainly to positon the containers one way and one way only. Some production lines require the use of a Feedscrew Orienter for its simple and basic structure and use. Two precise screws are used to handle the incoming product (used as an infeed) and the other is used to actually perform the orientation process. A setback that Feedscrew Orienters encounter is each screw has to be made specifically for each container limiting the container versatility.


Screw Orienters will be used mainly to specific needs in production lines. Due to their lack of customizability and need to be made for specifically for the container being used, there is a lack of container versatility. Containers that are usually used are within the beverage/food industry and pharmaceutical industry, and are mostly plastic bottles, plastic jars, and pill bottles. The speed of a Screw Orienter varies on the type of feedscrew being used and the bottles being oriented.
