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.

Universal Robotic Box Cutter

Open boxes of varying shapes and sizes the safe, hygienic and efficient way with the H&C Universal Robotic Box Cutter.

Also known as the Universal Box Cutter, or UBC, this machine has been developed to remove the need for operators to manually open boxes or cartons using knives.

The UBC uses vision technology to scan the box and determine its size and shape. Information is then passed to the robot to make adjustments to the cut profile, on the fly, without the need for operator intervention.

It is capable of cutting box straps and bands, and adapts automatically to handle damaged boxes.

Key benefits:

  • Handles multiple box formats at the same time
  • Operator input not required for box size and shape changes
  • Reduced labour – allows staff to be redeployed to higher value work
  • Eliminates manual handling, knives and the associated risk of injury
  • Removes risk of product contamination by operators
  • Sanitary design with full wash down compatibility
