Convey Absolutely Anything in Your DC, 3PL, or Warehouse
Slave pallets are designed to transport pallets or containers with forklifts, conveyors, or ball transfers. Other uses include storage and transporting any load on roller conveyor, AS/RS systems, and racking systems. The slave pallets can be used for building up / breaking down pallets at any suitable place within the warehouse. Quality assurance inspection areas that work with various pallets including cardboard, CKD, wood, plastic, and containers can benefit from slave pallet utilization. By using multiple slave pallets, a dedicated conveyor system can be set up in virtually any configuration. When not in use, slave pallets can be stacked by a standard forklift truck to save valuable warehouse floor handling space. Typical applications include slave pallets for high density AS/RS and robotic stacking systems that store an extensive range of lightweight and heavyweight goods based on the unique needs of each individual system.
