Simplimatic Automates Puck Storage, Loading, and Unloading

November 1, 2010

LYNCHBURG, Va., Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Simplimatic Automation, a leading supplier of material-handling systems, introduces automated puck handling and storage with the Puck Loader/Unloader. This “first to market” solution automates the loading, unloading and storage of pucks.

“This new product will reduce puck damage, improve labor efficiency, and increase flexibility on filling lines,” according to Tom DiNardo, President of Simplimatic Automation.

The unit can be configured with options as a puck-line loader, a puck-line unloader, or both, enabling a variety of line configurations.

“Until now, puck handling, storage, and retrieval have been problematic for companies using pucks to increase efficiency and quality in their filing processes,” says DiNardo. “The Puck Loader/Unloader keeps pucks efficiently organized, safe from damage, and makes them easy to transport.”

The Puck Loader/Unloader is a modular machine that consists of an elevator mechanism that accepts and locates a cart and then positions the cart to load and/or unload pucks to and from a conveyor spur. The machine is enclosed and guarded to facilitate safe operation.

“The Puck Loader/Unloader is an outgrowth of Simplimatic’s customer-centered systems based approach to problem solving that continues to set us apart in CPG manufacturing,” said DiNardo.
