Conveyor belts line for plastic crates


Schoeller Allibert in Hardenberg is a leading producer of bottle crates.

As part of a logistics improvement process, a conveyor belt process was built up, which seamlessly connects production with the shipping department.

The robots on the injection molding machines place the crates on an integrated depositing conveyor.
These different production units in turn feed a central conveyor belt that runs through the production hall at a great height and descends to a carousel at the dispatch department.

This generously sized carousel makes it possible to flexibly distribute the various crates to pallet positions corresponding to the customer orders.

Schoeller Allibert realizes the intended goal: to avoid forklift transports with finished products in the production hall.
