Existing equipment was producing an inconsistent product for one of our major clients. This equipment could not meet overall throughput rates and added significant labor to their process because of mixed pallets of trays.


Foth was responsible for the design and manufacturing of a custom depalletizer and singulator. The project required proof of principle and modeling. Our design solution accommodated inconsistent products and met safety and automation considerations.


Foth was able to develop a custom machine that allowed for the automated unloading of mixed tray pallets and the singulation of trays. The machine also reduced safety issues and increased ergonomics for operators.
