The crate de-stacker handles the two most commonly used crates in the supermarket sector –Maxinest Bale Arm Crate 600x400 narrow edge leading in singles and Maxinest Bale Arm Crate 400x300 wide edge leading in pairs. It is available in two versions – a non-servo version supplies up to 15 full size crates per minute while a servo version supplies up to 25 full size crates per minute.

The de-stacker can be used in stand-alone situations or integrated into a system and is an ideal addition to pick and place units. Up to four stacks of crates can be queued either onto a stainless-steel bed or modular belt conveyor.

Clamping systems retain the bottom tray as the remaining stack is lifted. The released tray is driven out by a chain and peg conveyor system and the cycle repeats until all trays have been processed. An anti-topple arm swings across the entrance to control the back of the stack during de-stacking.
