Pallet Handling 101: Do you need a pallet handling system?

Model DCEZ Pallet Handling ConveyorPallet handling systems are an essential piece of many operations. They help get product out the door, and for you, that means:

  • Achieving needed output
  • Increased operations with floor size limitations
  • Safeguarded handling of product
  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Safer environment for employees with less moving equipment (e.g. forklifts)

How do you know if you need a pallet handling system? The first thing we'll look at, as with any conveying system, will be your product.

 

What kind of product can you transport with a pallet handling system?

The versatile nature of the pallet handling system will accommodate large, bulky products. Widths from 9" to 100" can move anywhere from .5 feet per minute to 200 feet per minute, so you can be assured of your product's stability.

Heavy product

Pallet conveyors are durable, versatile and able to both transport and accumulate heavy products. A variety of loads are available with pallet handling systems, and they can accommodate most pallet types.

  • Standard loads: 1,000 – 3,000 pounds
  • Heavy duty loads: 3,000 – 6,000 pounds
  • Consult factory: 6,000 – 10,000 pounds

Palletized product

As its name suggests, a palletizing system is the perfect option to move your pallets. No more carrying pallets from one end of your warehouse to the other on forklifts. These systems provide continuous, automated flow of product, cutting down on labor and maintenance costs.

How can you apply your pallet handling system?

Accumulation

A common use of pallet conveyors is accumulation. Zero pressure accumulation systems reduce the possibility of damage to your product while transporting it within your production area. Stability and simple operation helps provide a continuous flow of material, without the hazard of harm to the product.

Transport

When you need to get your product from one end of your production area to the other, pallet handling systems can do that, too. It's important to get your material safely from point A to point B, and these systems do the job simply and well.

What else can a pallet handling system do?

Your system will work best when it is created to do everything you need it to do—that can be anything from reorienting product to changing its direction completely. That's where system accessories come in. Create a complete system with these accessories:

  • Curves
  • Transfers
  • Lift & Rotate
  • Turn Tables
  • Pivot Carts
  • Pop-up Stops
