Douglas' Ascend™ Bottom Loader is a compact, fully automated  machine designed to load flexible and/or complex shaped products into  cases. Best suited for tubs, cylindrical and heavy products, the Ascend™ will meet your specific packaging requirements and deliver the ideal solution for your low speed packaging needs.

Employing the SmartSelect™ Automatic Changeover for multi-lane conveyors and infeed rails, the Ascent offers for various enhancements:

  • Changeover time – significantly reduces time to less than 5 minutes (time of changeover is dependent on extent of changeover)

  • Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″

  • Flexibility – ability to  place lanes where desired as opposed to centerline or fixed side adjustments and more customer options for generating product-specific recipes

  • Durability – infeed rail’s holding force can withstand high product pressure

  • Ergonomics – minimizing manual adjustments maximizes efficiency and promotes safety in the work environment


  • Speeds up to 15 cases per minute

  • A variety of infeeds and metering techniques for efficient product handling

  • Simple and repeatable changeovers

  • Powder coated steel frame construction

  • Designed for efficient sanitation

  • Compact footprint saves valuable floor space
