Pallet Turner

This solution is part of the pallet inverter family.

This innovative machine is perfect for heavy-duty usage as it can take loads as high as 3300 lbs. It is technologically advanced and can accommodate pallets with heights up to 83 inches, which pretty much covers most types. 

The main advantage of this inverter over the other types is the speed. The production speed of 50 pallets per hour makes this inverter far superior to others. The manual version can be used ‘hands-free” with the help of a button panel. On the other hand, PLC technology is used in the automatic versions.

Due to its speed and customizing features, this inverter can be deployed across a wide range of industrial sectors like food, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, beverages, and many more. Our fixed pallet turners offers the perfect solutions to industries that are having issues with overturning their products.

Cycle Description

The steps are pretty straightforward. With just a push of a few buttons on the panel, the operator will be able to invert the pallets with ease. This process can be repeated up to 50 times an hour, which is a significant increase in efficiency and productivity.

The cycle starts by placing the loaded pallets on the bottom platform of the machine. A forklift is used for placing the pallet loads. Now the panel buttons are used to tightly secure the pallet load from all sides.

The inverter starts rotating, and when it reaches close to 120° (up to 180°, depending on the stability of the product), the load will start turning upside down. Now the platform of the load side is dropped to initiate the separation of the load from the original pallet. The space is created to slide the new target pallet. The aim is to transfer the load to this new pallet and remove the old one.

At this point, the new pallet is successfully positioned to replace the original one. The process cycle is completed by rotating the whole load back to the 0° position. Now the forklift is used to remove the load and make the platform ready for the next pallet-changing task.

Versatile mode

The process is even faster on a few loads like cartons or boxes. The machine need not be inverted to 120° as the space between the load and the pallet is created with lesser rotation. It helps in further increasing efficiency and speed.

If you are looking for automatic pallet handling solutions, you have reached the right place. We at TopIndustries Inc also design customized automatic inverters with the capacity to change even 100 pallets in an hour. Please feel free to contact us today for the best solutions!

Pallet Inverter Applications: Benefits and Uses

A Pallet inverter is a versatile machine that offer several benefits across various industries. They make it easy to rotate, swap out, or transfer heavy loads, which can save time and effort while reducing the risk of injury. Our pallet inverters have the highest performance in terms of pallet exchange per hour. Here are some of the ways pallet inverters can benefit your business:

Retrieve Damaged Goods:

Damaged goods often end up at the bottom of the load. Pallet inverters make it easier to retrieve and replace the damaged items without disrupting the entire shipment, saving time and effort for employees.

Transfer Loads:

Pallet inverters are useful in clean production facilities where materials shipped on a wooden pallet need to be moved to a sanitary plastic base during processing. They also facilitate the transfer of goods from pallets to slip sheets.

Prevent Spoilage:

In industries like pharmaceuticals and food, regular rotation is necessary to prevent caking, settling, or spoilage of products. Pallet inverters simplify this process and reduce the risk of injury to workers.

Square Up Pallet Loads:

Pallet inverters can square up pallet loads, ensuring that they are stable and secure during transport and storage.

Invert Metal Sheets:

Pallet inverters can also invert metal sheets for stamping, providing added versatility and value to your operations. Investing in a pallet turner can help your business streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve efficiency.

For instance, printers need to turn their products to print on both sides of a sheet of paper, and vineyards invert wine bottles once the cork expands and they need to store the bottles long-term.

In the construction industry, handling heavy building materials can be a challenge. If you receive a shipment of dry concrete mix and notice some of the lower bags have tears in them, a pallet flipper can help you invert the order and correct the problem. With the push of a button, your staff can gauge inventory numbers and remove products that are wet, broken, or punctured, without straining themselves.

Using Toppy’s pallet handling equipment can help businesses reduce product waste and workplace injuries. Whether you choose one of our turnkey pallet inverters or create a custom design for your company, docking and storage procedures take less time and can be performed more safely.

This means you can properly manage your staff and distribute responsibilities accordingly, increasing business outputs in no time at all.

Benefits of Pallet Turners

Pallet turners are a valuable piece of equipment for businesses that handle fully loaded pallets. These versatile machines can lift, tilt, or even fully invert pallets, making it easy to retrieve broken items from the bottom or switch loads from one pallet to another. In the food and pharmaceutical industries, pallet inverters are often used to shift loads from wooden pallets to more hygienic plastic ones.

One of the greatest benefits of pallet flippers is their automation capabilities, which can greatly enhance the efficiency of your warehouse operations. By taking the laborious task of unwrapping, moving, and rewrapping pallet loads out of your hands, our pallet inverters can reduce processing times and require less human labor to adjust pallets or retrieve broken items during shipment. This frees up your team to work on other tasks, improving productivity and reducing the risk of accidents that can cost you money and jeopardize productivity.

Another key benefit of pallet rotators is their ability to save space, work in tight spaces where lift trucks can’t go, and integrate seamlessly into your material handling operation. With a pallet inverter, you can work smarter, not harder, and eliminate redundancies that waste time and increase operating costs. By minimizing product damage and creating a safer work environment, your customers will experience fewer incidents of damaged shipments, resulting in higher satisfaction levels and increased retention.

Investing in a pallet turner for your facility is a smart decision that can lead to increased productivity, reduced risks, and enhanced efficiency.
