Container tilt chassis

Container tilt  chassis – weighing and unloading

This equipment is designed to unload bulk containers with plastic granules and repack the products for local needs and logistic handling.
The containers are placed on a tipping device with an integrated certified weighing bridge using a reach stacker. The weight of the container is read and then emptied into a hopper located below. After emptying, the empty weight of the container is read and the actual net weight of the batch is determined.

Due to the design of the tipping chassis, the weighing equipment is completely separate from the structure. For weighing, a weighing frame with 4 measuring cells is hydraulically lifted to decouple the container from the tipping chassis. The hydraulic lift is provided by special synchronized cylinders and controls. The interlock with the tipping station is ensured. 2 tipping stations are controlled by one control system.

The special SSB design of the tipping units with integrated scales guarantees easy and absolutely safe handling.

Operating sequence

A traffic light signals to the forklift driver that a new container can be placed. The container ID number is entered at the operating terminal. By pressing the initial weighing key, the weighing frame is raised and the gross weight is determined. The weighing frame is lowered and the Twistlook latches are manually locked by the operator. Now the operator can switch on the tilt protection and tilt the container with the “Up-Down” key. Once the container is empty and back in the home position, the Twistlook latches must be released and the tilt lock must be turned off. As with initial weighing, the empty weight is determined by pressing the full lock button. Once the weighing process is complete, the light switches to “green” and a new cycle can begin. The weight data is displayed and made available in a data module for higher-level systems.

The operator has an easy handling. All work steps are displayed on a touchscreen with all status and work information.
