Project information

Project description:

Delmeco has designed, delivered and installed a crate tilting device for Sims Recycling Solutions. It can handle cubical crates as inlet station for a toner cartridge processing line. The inlet station doses (tilts) the contents of the crates in the process (the processing line).


The assignment combined mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, automation and HVAC and encompassed:


  • Engineering a crate tilting device incl. safety measures. The installation mainly consists of:
    • An inlet roller conveyor;
    • A crate de-stacker for de-stacking three-crate-stacks;
    • A manipulator for transporting crates and rotating in the process;
    • A cleaning position for vacuum cleaning the inside of the crates;
    • A crate stacker for stacking 3 crates upon each other
    • An outlet roller conveyor.                      
  •  Drawing up a functional design;
  • Building, testing and installing the installation incl. the control panel (executed by Delmeco Projecten B.V.).

In this project it was Delmeco’s responsibility to complete the crate tilting device and deliver it turn-key and ready to start for all disciplines from design to realisation.
