For Automated Retort Rooms, the retorts are designed to completely integrate with the material handling components. Automatic Doors, basket location sensors, positioning encoders, and data capture are key components added to interface properly with the container crates. The operator resides on a platform or control room and uses only touch screen to perform any required actions.
The Automated Loaders and Unloaders incorporate all the features to provide the fastest sweep speeds for rigid containers in the market within a very robust stainless-steel frame controlled by an Allen Bradley PLC and Color Touchscreen.
The Automated Flexible Container Loaders and Unloaders stage products on an integrated infeed system for robotic or gantry style Vacuum Pick and Place operation.
The link between the Loader/Unloader and Retort Crate Delivery is the crate conveyor network.
