Packing Solutions

From simple packing conveyors and rotary tables to automatic accumulation conveyors and automatic tray filling systems. Most of our equipment is bespoke and built to specific customer requirements so with exception to packing conveyors and rotary tables we don’t have a range per se, more just a broad experience in providing solutions.

Our latest innovation is the pallet pit. This equipment lifts a pallet to a comfortable height to lay the first layer of trays/boxes/bags etc on. As the layers are built the machine drops by the height of one layer, so every layer is loaded at the same optimal height. The pallet sinks into the floor then once full it lifts back to floor level to be replaced. No bending down or stretching up, no manual handling issues, no more moaning staff!

One of the biggest advantages of the system aside from the obvious health and safety benefits is that pallets can be stacked higher, resulting in reduced warehouse storage space required, reduced transport costs and overall major increases in the company carbon footprint.

Our first order of 5 double pits to one customer has calculated payback with one year just based on transport savings alone!

Of course the pallet pit can be used to unload pallets as well as load them, and different options include integrated weighing scales, automatic layer positioning and automatic locking pins at floor level if the need for heavy traffic is present.

The machinery is designed to be virtually maintenance free, with no hydraulics, no noise, no hassle. Using braked electric motors with encoders ensures perfect positioning time after time and no dropping or leaking if it sits off for a period of time.
