Paper handling systems and container handling systems

Container handling systems

Container handling systems ensure accurate processing and provision of containers for rapid order processing    

Automatic container handling ensures a rapid material flow and significantly enhances productivity. That is why the automatic container handling systems from SSI SCHAEFER carry out the individual steps of the container handling process at the speed of the goods flow. The highest possible throughput peaks are also taken into account.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Modular design

  • Extremely quiet, yet high-speed operation

  • Simple maintenance thanks to clear and easily accessible modular design

  • Gentle container handling 


The singling, emptying, closing, and staging steps are carried out in the individual dispatch areas with the highest precision:


Stacking ensures  that unused containers are stored in a space-saving manner. The containers are returned to the system as soon as they are needed.


Destacking separates the containers stored in the stack.

Bin emptying 

Bin emptying removes the packaging material from the containers. The containers are then transported back via the conveying system.

Bin Lidding 

Bin lidding seals the containers with covers after the picking process.

Lid Closing 

Lid closing automatically closes containers with folding covers (flaps). A belt conveyor transports the containers with open flaps into the unit. The cover flaps are moved into a vertical position by the shape of the side guides and then fall together, closing the container.

Tray Unloading

Tray Unloading separates the trays and the goods by pushing them sideways off the trays.

Tray Loading 

Tray loading serves to load trays with suitable goods. The loading process utilizes two synchronized conveyors positioned at a steep angle above each other. The cartons slide onto the tray moving below without stopping.

Given their modular expandability, SSI SCHAEFER’s systems are highly flexible and can be integrated into all common conveying systems.
