In places where it is vital to create a "forklift free" zone, this 2000kg capacity pallet exchanger unit is a useful and effortless aid where pallets have to be exchanged and product would have to be restacked by hand.
Exchanging pallets by hand is a slow, difficult and potentially dangerous process. Pallet exchanger tilters eliminate the need for manual intervention and therefore eliminate the risk of injury, whilst significantly decreasing cycle times and increasing productivity.
Pallet exchange tilters consist of a fixed base frame with a tilting frame incorporating a “no crush” load stabilizing platen, clamp mechanism. The motions are actuated via a 415volt 3phase hydraulic power pack and all functions of the tilters are controlled by the on-board PLC controller which provides consistent, trouble free operation. The pallet jack operator needs only to press one button to initiate a full cycle.
Safety guards to one, two, or three sides, and a photo eye light beam across opening must be supplied with these tilters. This package is available from Schaefer Store, as are remote control units if the pallet exchanger tilters are used by forklift operators.
