With the introduction of the Omnia PX series, Moba has set a new standard in the industry with regard to three important goals for egg producers: efficiency, hygiene and food safety. With our customers’ need for a complete range of products in mind, Moba introduced the Omnia PX180 in 2018. The grader now comes with a brand new loader that meets the requirements of today’s market.
The ML180 can load 180 cases per hour on six-row-wide infeeds. It offers everything you would expect from a Moba loader, such as gentle egg handling, hygienic design and good accessibility.
The loader is placed at the beginning of the egg grader, because eggs from different farms and layer houses arrive on trays at the grading station and need to be placed on the Omnia infeed rollers for grading purposes. Moving the eggs from the trays onto the rollers is a critical process. If the eggs are not treated gently enough, cracks can occur, which means a loss of grade A eggs. To minimize these losses, Moba found the solution in the ‘common speed loading’ principle. When placing the eggs on the infeed rollers, the loader synchronizes its speed with the infeed speed resulting in a gentle release of the eggs on the rollers. This drastically reduces the impact on the eggs.
High hygiene standards
Once the eggs have been placed on the rollers, any contact between the eggs is avoided which reduces the chance of contaminated eggs significantly. The ML loader is constructed in such a way that makes it fully washable. The open construction makes it possible to clean every aspect of the machine quick and easy: you only need to raise the covers to clean every part of your equipment. So not only the high standards of hygiene are met, but the ML180 loader also makes your operation as efficient as possible by reduced cleaning time.
Configure to your needs
Another benefit of the ML180 loader is that the equipment can be configured to your specific needs, which creates the ultimate fit into your packing station. The loader can be constructed in a left- and right-handed configuration, matching your grader layout. The orientation of the destacker or pre-loader can be positioned on the denester side of the machine, but also on the opposite side. The tray stack infeed conveyors can be oriented towards the left or right as well.
With the ML180 loader you are ready for the future due to its ability to further automate your packing station. It is possible to equip the ML180 loader with Moba’s Easy lift, for easy loading stacks of trays, or the MR50 De-Palletizer. The combination of layout choices and additional automation results in maximum flexibility in creating an efficient and future-proof loading solution.
