The plastic pallet is one of the common logistics equipment in logistics transportation and warehousing turnover. It is also one of the most frequently used warehousing equipment in conjunction with warehousing shelves. The use of plastic pallets can make it easier to directly transport the goods in the storage shelves with forklifts, which not only provides work efficiency but also saves manual handling costs.
Then heavy-duty shelves, through shelves, shuttle shelves, clever racks, etc. need to combine their own characteristics, according to different storage needs, choose pallets of different materials, pallets are roughly divided into metal materials, wood, plastic, There are four kinds of materials.
First, heavy-duty shelves, heavy-duty shelves are typical of the use of metal pallet shelves. A group of such shelves can usually have 2-3 metal pallets placed side by side for the needs of the stocking. This type of shelf is also often called a pallet shelf. When using metal pallets for heavy-duty racks, some issues should be noted. First of all, we must determine the position between the good metal pallets and have appropriate space to facilitate the operation of the forklift; secondly, we should try to put the metal pallets neatly on the shelf beams to handle the relationship between the goods and the metal pallets. Avoid the occurrence of safety accidents, etc. The expansion screws at the bottom of the pallet rack must be installed to ensure the stability of the pallet rack.
Second, the shuttle rack is an automated rack system, which is used by the shuttle to store the pallets placed on it in depth. Plastic pallets are the main types of pallets used, and they are similar to through-type racks in the cargo space. The basic principle of the shuttle rack is that the rack and the movable shuttle car form a simple unit, and this unit can be moved in the warehouse. The shelves with shuttles running inside are controlled by a central console at the front end. The forklift lifts the shelf (including the shuttle) and places it on the center console of the designated shelf. After that, the forklift placed the inbound tray on the shuttle to start the storage operation. When the forklift is about to store the next pallet, the shuttle will quickly and steadily transport the pallet to the designated storage location in the rack.
Third, the use of through-type shelf pallets, through-type shelves is the master of the use of pallets. Since the through-type rack is a continuous whole rack that is not separated by aisles, it is also continuous using pallets, which also reduces obstacles and maximizes the ability to store goods. In use, the trays can be arranged in one direction and two directions. One-way (wall-facing area) total shelf depth should be controlled within 6 pallet depths, two-way (middle area can pick up on both sides) shelf area total depth should be controlled within 12 pallet depths to improve forklift access And reliability. As for the choice of metal pallet or plastic pallet, you can decide after combining your own comprehensive considerations.
