The depalletizer (Automatic Drum Unloader - ADU) from SMB is used for the unloading of empty barrels on swap bodies. The automatic unloader can optionally also be moved laterally to simultaneously or subsequently unload several swap bodies. Up to two separate drum unloaders can depalletize the swap bodies alternately, which further increases the availability of empty drums and permits to unload different types of drums at the same time.

Depalletizing can take place in open or closed swap bodies. Mounted on a ramp, the unloader is located about 1,200 mm above the truck lane.
