Palift solves problem for Coca-Cola Amatil

Company Profile:

Coca-Cola Amatil is a major Australian manufacturer and distributor of soft drinks and other alcohol-free beverages, and is the market leader in the industry.


Boxes of crowns (metal tops) arrive on a pallet and are lifted and unloaded by personnel into a hopper.

The Problem:

Staff were finding the production process difficult; as lifting the boxes off pallets involved regular bending when the load was low or reaching over the pallet when it was full.

Product Chosen:

Safetech PSTBTTT2 Palift.

Benefits of this Product:

Operators can now move the boxes into the hopper as they are constantly at waist height, eliminating the need to stretch or bend over the pallet when the pallet level decreases. This solution has significantly increased productivity due to less fatigue and reduced back injury, which was common under the previous process of unloading the boxes.


An alternative would have been a vacuum lifter however a purchase would have been doubtful due to the significant difference in price (twice the cost).
