2006-06-07 Jeco’s Dual Entry Pallet
The Jeco Dual Entry Pallet uniquely addresses a problem common at laminators
and converters. Because the Dual Entry Pallet can be approached by a forklift
operator from any side, it need not be turned between the printing press and
the laminator in continuous feed
operations. This feature not only streamlines operations between the press and the laminator, it saves time and reduces handling damage caused by maneuvering large pallet loads in what are often close quarters.
Announcing the product, Jeco CEO Craig Carson commented, ‘Laminators and converters who have tested the Jeco Dual Entry Pallet call it a most clever design, executed with the laminator in mind. The Jeco Dual Entry Pallet is rotationally moulded of linear low density polyethylene to provide impact resistance and rigidity. Unlike wooden pallets, Jeco
plastic pallets are virtually indestructible under normal factory conditions. They never splinter and are not subject to structural failure.’
Jeco Plastic Products manufactures durable pallets specifically designed for presses made by all the major press manufacturers: Heidelberg, KBA, MAN Roland, Bobst and others. It makes pallets for the 74, 104, 142 and 162 series sheetfed machines, as well as all varieties of web presses.
Other capabilities include the ability to produce complex plastic structural components with high tolerance requirements. Jeco production facilities include rotational plastic moulding and thermoforming capabilities unique in North America. Jeco designers employ complex
plastic compounds to impart dimensional stability and structural integrity to their products.
