Title: GRIPPER FOR TRANSPORTING CONTAINERS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a container clamp (2) for holding containers. The aim of the invention is to provide a transport device for containers, in particular bottles having a neck ring, which transport device is particularly easy to clean and ensures reliable grasping and transporting of the containers. This aim is achieved by means of a substantially horizontally oriented support element (1), a container clamp (2) arranged on the support element for holding containers having two clamp arms (3) each pivotable about an axis of rotation (6) in a first horizontal plane, a control unit (10), which is mounted on the support element so as to be rotatable in a second, for example horizontal plane and has arcuate control cams (9), wherein each clamp arm is mounted together with one guide element (8) in one of the control cams, the clamp arms are pivotable by means of a rotary movement of the control unit between an open position and a grasping position, and the first and second plane are oriented identically or substantially parallel to one another.
