Custom Designed and Manufactured Automatic Depalletizer for the Beverage Industry

This floor level beverage discharge machine, shown below, was custom designed and manufactured by Uni-Pak Corp. using a combination of fabrication processes, including bending, cutting, forming, machining, and polishing. All features of this complex unit - from the steel welded frame to the traveling platform and single filer - our expert staff constructed in-house. We also created the programming for this unique, automated beverage system.

Our custom depalletizer was designed to bulk load multiple cans and bottles produced from various materials (glass, plastic, or metal). Once we fully manufactured this depalletizer, we tested this unit using our buyer's product to ensure our equipment satisfied all customer requirements for design and performance. We then shipped the completed depalletizer to our client's facility in Longwood, Florida.
