Oryx Automation

World Class Crate Handling Equipment

RPC Automation

Returnable Plastic Crates (RPCs) are the future of fresh food packaging. We’ve developed the world’s most reliable, cost effective range of equipment designed to handle all of your crate automation requirements. 

Crate automation equipment


Fibre King’s trusted brand Oryx Automation, works with growers, agribusiness and wash plants to implement automated crate handling equipment.  Oryx designs and manufactures single RPC erectors through to palletisers, depalletisers, sorting and stretch wrapping equipment.  Whether you just need to erect Returnable Plastic Crates or have an entire wash plant system designed, you’ll enjoy lower overall cost of use with Oryx equipment.

Don’t know where to start? The Crate Erector and all its ancillary equipment are for handling empty crates, and the Crate Palletisers (both mechanical and robotic) are for handling filled crates. You might like to think of our range as modules that can be used individually or added together to provide as much automation as your business needs.
