When talking to our customers around the world, they have the same challenges in their processing businesses: labour, worker safety, hygiene and product safety and quality control. The most cost-effective way to address these issues is automation.

Our point of difference lies in our ability to develop and deliver custom solutions in response to each customer’s specific needs.

    De-palletise, de-carton and re-palletise 40lb / 20kg cheese blocks the efficient way.

    Also known as the DDRP-40, the H&C De-palletise, De-carton, Re-palletise system removes 40lb boxes from a pallet, removes the cartons and re-palletises the bagged blocks again at a rate of up to 16 blocks per minute.

    It features the unique, H&C-developed 3 Dimensional De-palletising (3DD) vision system, which detects boxes of product in any configuration and enables optimal pick-up to deliver faster and more reliable de-palletising.

    The DDRP-40 uses H&C’s superior cutting and carton removal technology to provide unparalleled reliability. It will safely remove the outer packaging, presenting an undamaged, wrapped block every time. With a proven track record in the industry, this is the best de-cartoning system available in the market today.
