Compact semi-electric FoodCap stacker.

Microstacker is a versatile semi-electric bin stacker from Simpro, with lifting arms designed to suit FoodCap capsules


Microstacker is a versatile semi-electric bin stacker from Simpro, with modular lifting arms designed to suit FoodCap capsules. It is ideal for meat-processing logistics applications, where FoodCaps need to be moved, stacked, stored in racking or loaded into trucks.

With a reliable electro-hydraulic system, the Microstacker can lift FoodCaps weighing up to 250kg to a maximum height of 2000mm. The unique single-mast design keeps weight to a minimum while improving operator visibility, and the triangular wheel layout ensures controllability on any surface. The stacker has a tiny turning radius to suit operation in trucks, and is just 60mm wider than a standard FoodCap – allowing the capsules to be stacked close to each other for stability.

As standard, the Microstacker is produced from mild steel with a powdercoated finish, but stainless steel construction is available for machines which are to be used in corrosive or hygiene-critical environments. All models have a maintenance-free sealed gel battery, and an integrated digital float charger for hassle-free charging.

Like all Simpro products, the Microstacker is designed to withstand intensive daily use with little or no maintenance.

The Microstacker is designed to be used with other Simpro handling equipment in the FoodCap® Ecosystem.
