Xpertpack is a leading manufacturers of wood packaging and we process close to 60,000 CFT of wood and wood derived products each month. All our facilities are equipped with state of the art machineries a few of which include laser cutting saws, automatic cutoff saws, high speed nailing guns and dust collectors. The machines are precise and systematic which enables us to reduce errors in manufacturing and production. We use 3-D design softwares such as SolidWorks and IronCad to design wooden pallets and boxes.
Containerised Transportation gave a massive impetus to the production of wooden pallets as they provide a convenient way to move loads and if the palletised loads are uniform from top then even stack one on top of each other. Once palletised loads can be conveniently moved around using Material Handling Equipment (MHE) such as forklift trucks, hand pallet trucks and stackers. Wooden pallets can be designed to take on higher and higher loads, however careful consideration must be given to both the static as well as dynamic load during designing.
No universally accepted standards for Pallet Sizes exist. A few elements that determine the size of pallets include – Load per pallet, Point load distribution, Equipment/Box Sizes and Rack dimensions in the warehouse to name a few. Pallets can be four way or two way depending on loads as four way pallets are capable of carrying much heavier loads.
