Hide Palletiser

The Hide Palletiser automatically weighs and palletises beef hides in a safe and consistent manner, removing the need for manual handling and keeping operators away from high levels of forklift traffic. By integrating with the customer’s information systems, improved traceability and process optimisation is also achieved by logging and reporting of plant throughput, hide quality and occurrence of defects, and accurate stock-keeping of palletised hides.

After wringing and grading is performed on the hides, they are transported to the Scott system where they are dropped onto folding tables and folded manually. Once folded they enter the Hide Palletiser System and are weighed. Hides are then palletised automatically to one of ten pallet stations based on your preference of weight, grade and/or destination. Once a pallet is full, the door to the pallet station will open, allowing the pallet to be safely removed by forklift, before being replenished with a new pallet.
