Destuffing Platform – A Conveyor System Accessory – News – Engineered Lifting Systems

The Destuffing Platform is an ideal solution for distribution centers that utilize conveyors in moving packaged goods. This innovative new material handling equipment is an accessory for conveyor systems designed to reduce worker injury due to back strains and improve efficiencies in the unloading of packaged goods from truck trailers.

The Destuffing Platform (DSP) attaches to an existing conveyor system with a flexible telescopic conveyor link. Two workers ride on the DSP’s rear deck and control the deck height and left to right conveyor position relative to the changing level of boxes stacked in the trailer. During the unloading process, the workers drive the DSP further into the trailer to position the unit close to the packaged goods. Manual handling of the packages onto the conveyor is optimized with workers positioned in an ergonomically correct posture.
