Make Pallets from Cherry’s Industrial Equipment a Staple of Your Operation
Pallets have been a staple in warehousing, industrial and manufacturing operations for many decades. Sometimes mistakenly referred to as skids — unlike pallets, skids do not have the underlying deck boards that provide additional support — pallets are flat, platform structures that facilitate the movement of goods with a lift truck, pallet jack, AGV or on a conveyor. They allow for easy loading, unloading, stacking and storing. Pallets are a mainstay in many industries, especially food, pharmaceutical, industrial, chemical and printing.
Many industries are converting from traditional wood pallets to plastic pallets for several reasons. Plastic pallets offer improved cleaning and sanitizing for WIP areas. In comparison to wood pallets, plastic pallets offer the elimination of product contamination from splinters, wood chips, or nails and a resistance to odors and chemicals. Plastic pallets can also reduce cost by providing a longer service life, lighter repeatable tare weights and greater dimensional consistency.
