If you’re looking for a customized solution to efficiently transfer loads from one pallet to another, look no further than Top Industries in Florida. As a leading international company specializing in pallet transfer systems, we can provide the perfect solution for your industry. Our advanced machines excel at:
- Transferring palletized loads between pallets
- Handling slip sheets with ease
- Efficiently transferring floor loads
In most cases, these machines are loaded from a conveyor or forklift and are designed to securely hold and transfer loads to another pallet. Load transfer stations typically consist of a metal frame, transfer plate, and receiving deck. For systems integrated within a conveyor line, there are automatic infeed and outfeed conveyors for seamless transfer.
For systems not connected to a conveyor, loading and unloading are done using a forklift.
