Animal feed industry and Stacking Products

For applications of stacking products on pallets (palletizing) in the petfood and animal feed industry, Verbruggen palletizers can handle bags from 2,5 kg (5 lb) up to bags of 75 kg (165 lb), boxes in different dimensions and bags in master bins.

Stacking Boxes in Petfood Industry

Palletizing solutions have widespread usage in the petfood industry for storing and transporting products. These automated systems stack boxes onto pallets, simplifying forklift movement. Implementing palletizing solutions brings a range of advantages.

Palletizing machines provide versatility by handling various box dimensions, accommodating different products. Integration with warehouse management systems optimizes logistics, enhancing overall efficiency.

Automated palletizing offers a valuable, cost-effective approach for storing and transporting products. With stable unit loads, they deliver heightened efficiency, reduced labor costs, improved safety, and customizable options to meet specific business needs.

Stacking Bags in Petfood Industry

Efficient bag stacking is of utmost importance in the petfood industry, especially when it comes to storing and transporting products like cat food and compound feed. These crops are packaged in stackable bags, ensuring their protection during handling and transportation.

The practice of bag stacking brings forth numerous benefits, including increased storage capacity, reduced labor costs, and minimized product spoilage. Customizable automated palletizing machines are capable of handling bags of various dimensions and weights, further improving operational efficiency.
In conclusion, the practice of bag stacking plays a crucial role in enhancing quality, reducing waste, and fostering sustainability within the petfood industry.

Stacking Crates in Petfood Industry

The efficient stacking of products in crates is critical to the petfood industry, ensuring seamless storage and transportation of raw materials to a processing plant and ultimately to the consumer. By implementing crate palletizers, the industry can minimize waste, increase efficiency and contribute to overall success and sustainability.

For starters, proper sorting of produce by dimensions and weight is essential.

This ensures that the crates are filled optimally without exceeding their capacity or damaging the products. Once sorted, the crates are carefully stacked on pallets using forklifts or other suitable equipment. Palletizers play a key role in efficiently placing the crates on the pallets, creating a stable load that can be easily transported and stored.

Palletizers optimize storage and transportation space

One of the significant advantages of palletizers is their ability to optimize storage and transportation space. By stacking crates uniformly and safely on pallets, companies can make the best use of available space and streamline their logistics operations. This not only reduces the need for additional storage space, but also enables more efficient use of transportation vehicles, leading to cost savings and improved sustainability.
