Skaginn 3X automatic tub handling and in-feed system is composed of a flexible range of cost-effective modules, from standalone machines up to complete systems. Automatic feeding of raw material at the initial stage of processing makes for greater stabilization than the traditional method of using forklifts. Consequently, all other stages in the processing of the raw material are more evenly regulated, which directly results in increased production. The system can be adjusted with buffer conveyors where the tubs are delivered into the system in stacks of up to 4 tubs and can receive many stacks in a row. From the buffer conveyor, the tubs are automatically moved into the ‘tub tipper’, which gradually empties the raw material from the tub using a specialized ‘tipping’ feature which is crucial in optimizing the value of the raw material. After the tubs have been emptied onto the processing line, they are removed either to the storage area for empty tubs or onto an automatic washing system which washes the tubs and return them clean.
Our customers have experienced better handling of raw material and increased production flow by using our automatic tub handling system. By largely decreasing forklift handling of the tubs, the lifetime of the tubs are longer due to gentle handling of the system.
