Reverse-packaging and product handling

H&C is recognised as a world leader in automated product handling and reverse packaging systems. While many other companies provide solutions to putting product into packaging, we are specialists in removing packaging from product ready for further processing.

Our technologies were developed for the cheese processing and cheese conversion operations but have since been applied to meat processing and e-commerce fulfilment.

H&C equipment is renowned for being robust, reliable and simple to operate, as well as providing an excellent return on investment in operational cost savings.

All of our equipment can be provided as standalone machines or as part of a complete process solution. We have particular expertise in the integration of these automated systems into existing process lines.

Reverse-packaging and product handling

Robotic De-Bagger

The H&C Robotic De-Bagger automates the removal of vacuum bags from multiple cheese block sizes.

Also known as the De-Bagger Multi Block, or DBMB, it is capable of managing virtually any block size or type on-the-fly, without resets or staff inputs.

It safely and reliably removes the vacuum bag to present an undamaged, uncontaminated block to the processing line every time.

When combined with the H&C Defect and Foreign Object Detection module, the system provides unprecedented confidence that product entering the processing line is in perfect condition, free from defects and foreign objects.

Key benefits:

  • Increased productivity with less stoppages for product changes, resets or errors
  • Risk of product contamination is removed
  • Reduced labour – allows staff to be re-deployed to higher value work
  • Eliminates manual handling, knives and associated health and safety risks for staff
  • Waste plastic is managed efficiently in specialised units
