Ergonomic Solution for Stacking Empty Pallets in Industrial and Commercial Applications

Automation Plus, Division of CSF Incorporated

Automation Plus, a Division of CSF Incorporated would like to announce an additional product to the Pallet Return Device (PRD) product line. Not only can the PRD be used in DC pick modules, now it can be used anywhere that empty pallets are stacked, saving the need for intense manual labor or expensive machinery.
The stand-alone PRD works well in:?
--Distribution centers
--General warehousing facilities
--Manufacturing facilities
--Food and beverage plants?
--Retail stores
If empty pallets are stacked in a facility, the PRD should be there to manually assist!
The PRD incorporates a unique method for stacking empty pallets. The PRD enables a new method, wherein the operator lifts the pallet over a pivot point thereby creating a mechanical advantage to remove the back strain associated with lifting pallets.
The PRD uses a “carriage” to help guide the empty pallets. This feature produces a perfect stack every time, thereby eliminating the need for the fork truck driver to reshape a stack of empty pallets. Additionally, pallets stacked neatly one atop the other removes the hazard associated with falling pallets. A falling pallet or dropped stack is rare, but when they do fall (particularly from high locations) it can be a serious situation.
A single pallet can weight anywhere from 30-70 pounds. The PRD incorporates a shock absorbing device that provides a smooth transition from the load position to the unload position. In use, the operator loads the carriage. When the carriage is full, the operator simply releases the load, and lets the shock absorbing device safely guide the stack to an unload position. Once positioned, the pallets are rolled forward to a raised outbound location which releases the pallets from the carriage. The operator then slides the carriage back, tilts it to the load position, and it’s ready to receive more empty pallets
