28 November, 2011

An Australian manufacturer of plastic containers needed to dispense pallets to a plastic bottle line.

Application

Dispensing of pallets to plastic bottle line.

The Problem

Removing a single pallet from a stack of pallets by hand was hazardous for the operator and caused damage to pallets as they hit the floor.

The area has a high number of pedestrian traffic and hand pallet truck usage and it was necessary for forklifts to move pallet stacks in the area.

Product Chosen

Safetech Side Entry Pallet Dispenser.

Benefits of this Product

  • Hand pallet truck access to a stack of 15 pallets.
  • Side entry design very durable and robust.
  • Pallets are automatically dispensed as each pallet is removed. No waiting.
  • Area is now pedestrian traffic only as forklift loads pallets into front of the Pallet Dispenser and hand pallet trucks remove single pallets from rear.
  • Area is now safer and more efficient.

Alternatives

The established pallet handling process which required a lot of manual pallet movement and created stacks of pallets throughout the plant.
