Machines that unhinge and separate a stack of containers, such as tray, clamshell and blister denesters, before placing them onto a conveyor, one by one, for a separate operation such as filling.

Devices integrated with conveyors to remove, divert and stage for collection packages or containers considered rejects, such as unlabeled or otherwise defective items, or to otherwise separate products from a packaging line, such as in quality checks.
