Automated container loading
The objective of this project was to develop, install and test an automated container loading system for the packing of meat cartons into a refrigerated shipping container. This will be a pilot system, which will run extended trials for development purposes.
It was identified that the majority of Australian meat is exported in cartons and packed in refrigerated shipping containers. This shipping method produces a number of challenges including OH&S and loss of product and an automated solution would be of great value to the Australian Industry.
