Metal Pallets

Pallets are a essential component  of any warehouse or distribution center. Metal pallets are Precision-engineered  that  are one of our most sought-after products. Metal pallets as compared to conventional wooden pallets or even lightweight plastic ones, metal pallets made out of high-grade steel are much more durable, safe and efficient.Pallets are the primary interface between the finished goods and the material handling equipment. The pallet’s integral role is often overlooked or minimized. It should not be.
While wooden pallets are not long-lasting, and plastic ones cannot take large loads over a long period of time, metal pallets can do both of these. Being coated with anticorrosive paints, they are also corrosion resistant and built to withstand various capacities, weights and temperatures.

Metal Pallets can be briefed as following

  • Pallets provide a safe, effective shipping and storing platform throughout demanding and diverse situations in the unit load process.
  • A proper pallet specification should take into consideration not only the unit load weight requirements, but all of the material handling situations the load will encounter including: free span racking, conveyor travel, forklift handling, and AGV systems.
  • Pallet specifications can be designed to accommodate any unique automated equipment performance requirements.
  • Pallet specifications involve among other things the product, its configuration and packaging type.
  • If you are over-packaging your product to compensate for non-uniform pallets, it is costing you money.

Criteria for Pallet Specification
To reduce costs and ensure the protection of the unit load, pallet users should establish criteria for pallet specifications. Following can be some of the guidelines that can be considered in the development of specifications for pallets.
General Description 

  • Size and description
  • Schematic drawing with dimensions and component placement

Component Dimensions

  • Top deck, bottom deck, stringer or block and stringer board Length x width x thickness; Number of components
  • Nails Detailed nail specification ; Number per connection; Quality

Tolerances

  • Pallet size
  • Component sizes

Materials

  •  Allowable lumber species
  • Minimum lumber grades
  • Moisture content of lumber

Performance Requirements

  • Load weight requirements
  •  Maximum pallet deflection
  • Pallet Durability
  •  Equipment capability (rack-able, conveyable, forklift and pallet jack entry)

Summing up, an appropriately designed pallet can reduce product damage rates by eliminating or lessening the consequences of impacts, protruding objects and heavy loads. Correct specifications can increase material handling efficiency in all phases of the unit load process.
