Standard inverters work in a wide variety of applications, but corrugated combo’s represents a unique problem with transferring product from wood to plastic pallets. Load transfer systems or forklift mounted push pull packs would tear the box, and standard 180° standard inverters would cause the box to collapse. All of the methods lead to load degradation and contamination issues. With the development of the combo transfer machine, Cherry’s Industrial created a machine that has a moving side clamp that would cradle the combo so the customer could quickly change from wood to a plastic pallet without losing any load or tearing the box. The combo inverters are ground level for easy use with a motorized pallet truck, and custom built specifically for the dimensions of the customer’s combo. Typically built with stainless steel baskets, fittings, and wash-down capabilities, these machines are built for the rugged meat production environment.
