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 loading station
The tray loading station enables trays [link: Trays] to be loaded with almost any type of goods. The goods come to a stop slightly above and next to the tray and are then pushed sideways onto the tray. The tray itself has to be equipped with an insert.
Tray unloading station
The tray unloading station separates the trays and the goods. The insert in the tray is raised via openings in the floor of the tray, enabling the goods to be pushed sideways off the insert.
Linear loading station
The linear loading station serves to load trays with suitable goods. The loading process utilizes two synchronized belt 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.
