Pallet Handling Load Application
When a pallet load application is before us, there are two
key questions to ask:
Load capacity usually can be handled simply by selecting a
conveyor with structural and drive capacity. This is normally
done at the factory. The pallet bottom, however, is another
matter entirely. Let's look at some conveying surfaces.
Although you may think you are conveying a "STANDARD PALLET",
don't believe it!! While pallets may appear similar, they are
NOT and careful attention must be given to the pallet bottom
deck. Will the pallet "runners" be parallel or perpendicular
to the conveyor rollers?
Runners perpendicular are always best. Runners
parallel should be avoided. If runners are in both directions,
the pallet could be used bi-directionally, ie., placed on the
conveyor in either orientation.
Actually, most pallets are one of several variation
of one-way only stringers. At right are some examples of
different pallet types. Some standardization does occur in the
pallet industry, and further standardization continues, however,
many pallet types are available and you must be aware of the
type or types of pallets to be used in your application. When
purchasing pallets, cost is often a major concern. In this
respect, we cannot expect to always convey perfect pallets.

Expressway Belt Sawtooth Merge
Hytrol's Expressway Belt Sawtooth offers
an all new concept in sawtooth merges. It consists of a
belt-over-roller design. The rollers extend beyond the belt into
the "tooth" where their diameter is increased. This
increased diameter allows merging cartons to transition onto the
belt. The tooth also contains a powered guide rail to positively
convey merging product through the "tooth" area. The
Expressway is modular in design, allowing it to be easily
configured for your particular requirements.
