Automation - Tote/Basket Management

A sustainable option for protecting your packaged products

In the initial automated operation stacked, foldable totes are de-palletized, de-stacked, opened using a multiformat opener (or rejected as unopened), distributed, and delivered to the packaging process.
In the return phase, totes are collected, prepared and cleaned, and conveyed for set up again. While tote systems can leverage traditional material handling equipment, stacking and de-stacking often requires manual intervention. An automated system increases reliability and throughput, reduces long-term costs, and provides ergonomic improvements that enhance workplace safety.
We offer de-palletizing, de-stacking, tote/basket erecting with inspection and rejection, stacking, conveying and buffering systems, full system integration, and the ability to accommodate multiple SKUs of both RSCs (corrugated) and RPCs (plastic) simultaneously.

Regular Slotted Containers (RSCs)

Regular Slotted Containers (RSCs) have the manufacturers’ flap, or 5th panel, pre-glued. RSC cases are commonly used for loading product vertically (or top-loaded) through the flaps, which are then closed and sealed manually or automatically using
either tape or glue.


Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs)

Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs), known as “totes,” or in the bakery industry as “baskets,” are used to transfer products, accommodating a wide range of products and primary packaging types. Reusable plastic totes not only reduce carbon emissions, waste, and natural resource consumption, they offer improved product protection versus cardboard alternatives.
Durable plastic totes are easy to clean, hygienic, resist water and chemicals, and are consistently sized. Plastic totes have been shown to reduce product damage by up to 96% while lowering costs by as much as 27% through more efficient, reusable distribution processes.
