Loadhog unveiling brand new automation range

Loadhog, the returnable packaging manufacturer, is adding two new products to its automation range. As the importance of automation continues to grow, Loadhog’s new designs are set to improve and modernise operations processes across a range of sectors.

Firstly, introducing the AUTO TOTE, the smoothest running base on the market.

The Auto Tote’s double skin base is designed to run along automation systems smoothly and quietly while maintaining a high level of durability. The diagonal ribbing strengthens the base, and the 100% closed underside ensures smooth, silent running and minimised deflection.

The unique high impact hollow corners maximise the resistance against damage, and the completely covered ribs on the underside protect the conveyor system, helping to save costs on belt maintenance. The base consists of a cantilever edge reducing noise on rollers and a chamfered side edge that provides a smoother transition between linking conveyors or during a directional change.

Various optional extras can help modify the Auto Tote dependant on the specific needs of the company, including; divider configurations, automated barcode and label application and both open or closed handle options.

Also introducing, the OMNIMAX.

Designed to target applications between intralogistics and transit, combining the features and benefits of an automated container with the high volume and return efficiencies of transport packaging, hence the name ‘Omnimax’, omnichannel distribution with maximum logistical benefits.

With three heights available, Omnimax delivers the highest usable volume with multiple automation features, producing successful results for both the automation integrator and the end customer through massive logistical gains.  The container is 7% better than the industry average, with the 4 heights offering maximum litreage of 51 (270mm), 62 (320mm), 70 (360mm) and 79 (400mm). That 7% increased volume positively impacts vehicle fill, transport, waste, and cost.

The offset drainage holes within the Onmimax have been implemented to adhere to FM Global Regulations. The smooth internal base makes for easy cleaning, while the flat textured base provides grip on the conveyor. The innovative auto-friendly arms are designed to aid simple stacking operation, reducing the need for complex robotics and human interaction, saving significant labour and automation costs.

The Omnimax offers a 75% nesting ratio enabling increased return efficiencies. When used in conjunction with the Loadhog Pally & Lid System, the ease of transport and elimination of double handling becomes the norm.
