Metal Pallets & Skids
Perhaps the most basic and common of all material handling equipment is the pallet. Often referred to as a skid, pallets are used across an infinite number of industries to handle a multitude of different types of products. They can be used in process to haul WIP from workstation to workstation or to protect finished product until it gets to point of use.
The basic functionality of a standard pallet can be coupled with our ability to custom tailor the design to your specific operation or product. Features such as:
- A walk-in cut out to allow easier loading and unloading.
- Stacking posts to allow you to utilize vertical real estate.
- Forklift channels to allow you to band and lift off product.
- Pin locations to easily secure product in transit.
The possibilities are only limited by the need and your imagination.
When product contamination, fire suppression or disposal costs become problematic, a steel or aluminum pallet can be a great alternative to wood or plastic. They afford greater strength, fire resistance and the ability to be cleaned and reused indefinitely. This makes them ideal for supply chain loops.
Bottom line, if you have an application that requires a pallet, we can help. Our sales team in conjunction with our engineering staff can help you design a pallet that will get the job done safely and efficiently as possible.
