It is not enough to have efficiently organized pallet storage. Without the proper pallet handling tools, operations can be slowed down significantly, workers can strain themselves to the point of injury, and materials stored on pallets can be dropped and damaged. However, when the right material handling equipment is used to load, transport, and process pallets, the rate of process flow drastically increases and liability is significantly reduced as the risk of damage and injury drop exponentially.
Different types of devices dedicated to the efficient material handling of pallets can be purchased from Vision Masters. With a reasonable investment in only a few of these devices, a warehouse can fully equip their staff with all of the tools necessary for the rapid, safe, and accurate manipulation of pallets. Specific tools for specialized tasks are available to make every procedure as efficient, safe, and cost-effective as possible.
One of the most time-sensitive operations in any warehouse is pallet breakdown. Removing stored materials from a pallet requires a level surface that holds the materials in a secure position for the worker. One of the best pallet handling tools a warehouse can use for this purpose is a pallet level loader. This device raises the pallet to an accessible height so the worker does not have to stoop to manipulate its contents. We have several models that also have built in turntables so that contents can be rotated into position for loading, unloading, or packaging.
There are other material handling products that are designed to move pallets from truck bays to storage areas and racks. These devices, such as our straddle mobile leveler, or our Eazypallet lift truck, are often purchased as alternatives to fork trucks. One advantage they offer is cost. They are much less expensive than forklifts and therefore a much more viable option for smaller warehouses with a fixed procurement budget. Also, they do not require a license to operate, so family businesses with a small workforce can train everyone on their crew to use them safely and efficiently.
There are also turntables that are used to rotate loads for packing, unpacking, and shrink wrapping. These pallet handling devices are favorites among packaging companies. Medical supplies and food services organizations can also purchase stainless steel units that ensure maximum sanitation during product manipulation.
