The singling, emptying, closing, and staging steps are carried out in the individual dispatch areas with the highest precision:
Container stackers ensure that unused containers are stored in a space-saving manner. The containers are returned to the system as soon as they are needed.
The container destacker separates the containers stored in the stack.
The container emptier removes the packaging material from the containers. The containers are then transported back via the conveying system.
The cover machine seals the containers with covers after the picking process.
The cover closer automatically closes containers with folding covers (flaps). A belt conveyor transports the containers with open flaps into the unit. The cover flaps are moved into a vertical position by the shape of the side guides and then fall together, closing the container.
Tray unloading station
The tray unloading station separates the trays and the goods, by pushing them sideaways off the trays.
The loading station serves to load trays with suitable goods. The loading process utilizes two synchronized conveyors positioned at a steep angle above each other. The cartons slide onto the tray moving below without stopping.
Given their modular expandability, SSI SCHAEFER’s systems are highly flexible and can be integrated into all common conveying systems.
