OVERVIEW

MiTiltTM is a revolutionary tilting container loader that allows you to gravity-load your containers to maximum capacity. It combines patented tilting technology with a choice of four different bodies or frames, to suit your type of operation. The MiTiltTM is safely controlled by a single operator and allows you to weigh the container during loading.

MITILTTM IS IDEAL FOR:

Loading both 40ft or 20ft containers to maximum capacity. Loading a range of materials for faster, cleaner and safer handling. With its gravity-fed design, the MiTilt TM is ideally suited to loose materials such as minerials, metal, grains, sugar and rice. For other types of materials, see Industries.

HOW IT WORKS

MiTiltTM allows a container to be tipped at your chosen angle – anywhere between -10° to 90°. By loading from above, you have access to 100% of the internal container volume. Shipping containers are inserted either directly with a standard trailer, or from above with a forklist, crane or reach

FEATURES

STREAMLINES BULK HANDLING

MiTiltTM enables you to load directly into shipping containers in less than five minutes. You’ll increase profitability – with the flexibility to load containers where and when you want.

SAVES ON LABOR AND EQUIPMENT 

A-Ward’s intelligent remote control system allows a single operator to complete the loading, weighing and transfer – all from the safety of the controller’s cab.

OPTIONS TO SUIT YOUR OPERATION 

Depending on your needs and budget, you have a choice of tilting options (0-70°, or 0-90°); and choice of frame (Universal, Flat Deck, Long Front, Short Rear). Choose your customized combination for the greatest efficiencies and cost savings.

SMALLER FOOTPRINT 

MiTiltTM is highly compact and takes up far less yard space than traditional container loaders. By utilizing every last inch of space, containers are filled to 100% capacity.

ACCURATE WEIGHING 

MiTilt’s built-in scale system means each load is weighed ‘live’ by the operator, using a digital hand-held remote. So you will avoid double-handling and ensure accurate payload every time.

DESIGNED TOUGHER 

MiTiltTM is designed and built to take the knocks. The proof? Hundreds of our customers use their MiTiltTM day after day, year after year, in the toughest industrial conditions.

CASE STUDY

COFFEE - JOULIE GROUPE

Joulie Groupe is able to load 22 tons of coffee beans into a 20ft container in 10 minutes using their A-Ward container loader.

Location: Montpellier France

Industry: Food - Coffee

Equipment: 20ft Flat Deck Frame container loader

CHALLENGE

Joulie Groupe in France challenged A-Ward to supply a container loading solution to enable 20ft shipping containers to be loaded with coffee beans.

Joulie Groupe is a transport and logistics company based in Montpellier France which is under contract from one of the world’s largest food producers. This particular project involved Joulie Group importing 20ft shipping containers filled with coffee beans. The shipping containers then had to be unloaded quickly and re-loaded into special 20ft shipping containers modified for storage.

Joulie Groupe also has a large forklift available on site to shifting containers around.

SOLUTION

A-Ward worked closely with French bulk material supplier LC Technologies to provide a complete solution for Joulie Groupe.

A-Ward supplied a standard 20ft Flat Deck Frame container loader; which is specifically designed to enable container insertion from above using a forklift, crane or reach stacker.

A-Ward also provided a number of accessories including digital scale, hands free remote control, access ladder and platform, hydraulic door opening and closing arms and an electric power pack.

An elevator and auger was supplied by LC Technologies as part of this total solution.

RESULT

Joulie Groupe is able to load 22 tons of coffee beans into a 20ft container in 10 minutes.

By using a standard A-Ward container loader tilted to 90 degrees, Joulie Groupe is able to load maximum weight containers extremely quickly, eliminate spillage, maximize operator safety with the access ladder and platform and minimize labor involved with the process.

The digital scale also enables the operators to know exactly how much weight is in each container at any time during the loading process.

Automatic door closers enable safe container door closing at the push of a button.
