Key Issues to Consider While Assessing Any Pallet Transfer System

Pallet conveyors are designed to move and handle heavy loads, optimize handling manufacturing operations as well as streamline the operation of warehouse and distribution centres.

Top Industries can offer solutions for your pallet conveyor to integrate with freezer spacers that integrates first-class technology that can fit the unique necessities of your process to run your operations smoothly and efficiently.

Pallet conveyors assist in lowering overall operating expenses while facilitating increased turnout and flexibility in moving heavy loads.

With the help of this efficient and high-performance technology, a certain more ergonomic method is introduced, relieving operators of heavy lifting.

Whether it is a standalone conveyor or a component of a fully automated pallet material handling system, the engineers of the equipment provider will collaborate with you on-site to guarantee that the best solution is incorporated.

How pallet conveyors work

Pallet conveyors can handle and transport any large, heavy, or even unwieldy loads. They are often positioned in a low position close to the ground to have better control, and all the products are moved by slats, belts, rollers, or chains.

Any traditional conveyors, whether powered or unpowered solutions can offer seamless integration with any ancillary pallet handling equipment such as:

  • Robotic palletizers and de-palletizers
  • Unit load ASRS
  • Turn tables
  • Transfers
  • Stretch wrappers
  • Pallet dispensers and much more.

Also, in addition, to offering conveying services for products to move from one point to another point, some designs of accumulation pallet conveyors enable certain zero-pressure accumulation features.

Zero-pressure Conveyors can be used ideally for accumulation of pallets on networks having photo eye-control systems. These motor controlled conveyors help in preventing the damage to the goods.


For your most effective conveying solutions, the experts of your equipment supplier are going to work with you and explore potential turnkey or any custom options. They may consider the following details:

  • Type, weight, and size of the items being conveyed
  • Type of pallet or skid
  • Destination locations
  • Need for any curves or transfers
  • The amount of start and stop required
  • Accumulation of products
  • Environmental conditions for hot, and oily parts
  • Available conveyance surface in your facility

Features and benefits

  • Improve warehouse flow
  • Decrease traffic
  • Minimize labour required for load handling
  • Gentle handling
  • Product damage reduction
  • Precise positioning
  • Improve system throughput
  • Improves safety and ergonomics
  • Free up your fork truck equipment for many other tasks

Key issues to consider when assessing the pallet transfer system

Your operation, existing pallet handling equipment, and budget will all have an impact on the system that you choose. Consider the small aspects, such as how you stack pallets, how you fill containers for delivery to consumers and the raw materials you require for production.

All the aspects of the process must be taken into consideration:

  • If you have got a small manufacturing unit, then you may go for a pallet handling system that is capable of supporting several configurations.
  • If space is your issue, then finding certain easy access for the load transfer approach is preferable. Balance your quality against adequate portability for storage.
  • For supply chain with many moving parts, think about a comprehensive and long-lasting solution like an automatic pallet exchange system.
