Magic Bus

Our can depalletizers offer reliable automation for lines running cans anywhere from 10 to 600 CPM. You’ll find our famous small footprint depals at the head of the line for any canned product that needs to be moved from a pallet to a filler.


Gone are the days of pouring time and labor into the manual handling of pallets, top frames and tier sheets on your canning line – the Magic Bus allows packaging teams to “set it and forget it” by simply loading cans, debanding, and pressing start. A two-pallet infeed pulls pallets of cans into a depalletizer, where they are automatically emptied, stacked, and have their top frame and tier sheets removed and stored. It is a one-stop-shop for depalletizing cans on lines running at 25 to 600 CPM/1,500 – 36,000 CPH, and is ideal for any application where speed is important, increased automation is needed, and operator involvement can be minimized.
