2006-11-06 Pallet Inverters save time and stop injury
Safetech Pallet Inverter
Pallet Inverters are used for the rotation of pallet loads where exchange of pallets or inversion of product is required.
Loading and unloading pallets by hand is difficult, slow, and a common source of injury. Pallet Inverters eliminate the need for manual handling and therefore eliminate injury risk whilst increasing cycle times and productivity.
Safetech pallet inverters handle widely varying load dimensions and capacities up to 2000kgs Applications include;
-Food manufacturers who wish to eliminate wooden pallets from the processing floor. The timber pallet can be swapped for an in-house plastic or steel pallet, which conforms to "clean room" standards.
-To reduce pallet hire costs by transferring from expensive hire pallets to in-house pallets.
-In automated storage and retrieval systems where pallets are routinely checked and defective pallet loads are flagged for exchange.
-When goods earmarked for export are sitting on rental or in-house pallets and must be transferred to another pallet (or slip-sheet) suitable for export.
-Pallet loads which need to be straightened and "squared up" on the pallet
Inverter installations often include features or accessories such as
-Full height fencing to prevent personnel from inadvertently standing too close during operation.
-RF or IR Remote Control
-Remote control to minimise the need for the forklift driver to leave his seat
-Light curtain with interlock in addition to safety fencing.
-High speed operation
-Forklift bump edge
