OMS Pallet-Less Packaging System: For Cement Sacks

07 February 2014

OMS S.p.A, based in Milan and established in 1949, has a long tradition of designing and manufacturing end-of-line packaging machinery. The Pallet-Less Packaging System is one of OMS’ most innovative solutions, and several have been supplied to cement companies worldwide.

The system enables cement companies to eliminate pallets completely while still ensuring stability and protection from the elements on all sides. A polythene sheet, typically 60-200 micron is applied to the top of the pack, followed by a shrink hood. The pack is then held securely and rotated through 180 degrees, before a second shrink hood is applied to the pack, thereby sealing it on all sides.


The Pallet-Less packaging line consists of the following 4 machines:

  • AT05 Top Sheet Dispenser
  • AT53 Hooding & Hot Air Shrink System
  • RT01 Pack Compression & Rotation Device
  • AT53 Hooding & Hot Air Shrink System


Features & Benefits

  •  Considerable cost savings by eliminating pallets
  •  Removing pallets means more warehouse space is achieved
  •  Packs can be handled using normal lifting equipment
  •  Pack is protected from water ingress on all sides
