The device is used to de-stack a column of crates with live birds consisting of 7 or 8 containers and feed them individually to the chain conveyor.
The stacks of containers are introduced into the machine by means of a scissor conveyor, placed directly in front of the de-stacker, and a two-row chain conveyor before the de-stacker. Once the two stacks of containers are in position, the conveyor stops and the lifting table raises the stacks to such a height that the gripper holds the second lowest row of containers. The table with the lowest crates is lowered and the chain conveyor takes the two crates out of the de-stacking machine. After the crates have been brought out, the table rises to its highest point, the gripper lets go of the crates, then the table lowers to a level so that the gripper can hold the second lowest row of crates. The table is lowered and so on until all the crates have been removed from the de-stacking machine.
– Easy cleaning and maintenance
The installed power depends on the slaughter capacity and the type of live poultry crates
