'TiltBox' Innovation

Schematic supply Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC's), Folding Large Containers (FLC's), and material handling logistic solutions.

Our TiltBox TILT975 model is a FLC and ideal for many applications, especially caps and closures handling in the drinks/bottling sector. It is designed to improve handling efficiency, save costs and reduce packaging waste in line with the trend from the global logistic packaging industry. As such, a three high stack can be fitted on a 3000mm (3m) high transport/waggon.  Click here to see the video of FLCs loading onto a waggon.

Most importantly, the FLC is designed to ensure the caps/closures are protected and arrive at the bottling plant uncompressed or out of shape.

The TILT975 has a 840 Litres (222 US Gals) capacity and a product reliability and high quality that is well proved in many hundreds of thousands of installations/uses around the world.  It is offered, as standard, with an integral Chute hatch which can be pneumatically activated when used in conjunction with a Tilt machine. Schematic manufacture vibrating tilt machines with single or dual pallet stations.

Schematic also offer a 1125mm high TiltBox, (TILT1125) which deliberately holds more cap/closure capacity and therefore places a higher load on the caps/closures at the bottom of the container. The tall height TiltBox is therefore ideally suited for 'non-load sensitive' products.

The TILT975 has passed the following international standards;

- The general simulation performance test for packaging (ISTA-3E)

- The D4169-08 Performance Testing of Shipping Containers

- The Systems by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA)

- The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
