Pallet inverters are quite known for their usefulness to have in any warehouse. They can help in speeding up the material handling process and also can lower the wear-and-tear of your manual workers, and keep them efficient and effective.

There are 4 different types of palettenwender (English Meaning pallet turner) users that generally use in small and mid-sized companies. 

  1. Companies that may need regularly to recover broken pallets. These pallet inverters can ensure there is not much mess in the warehouse.
  2. Companies that want to switch incoming goods from wooden pallets to plastic pallets to use in their production areas.
  3. Companies that want to guard against any busted pallets entering into their material handling systems. As broken pallets can cause unnecessary delays and can be dangerous in high-bay warehouses.
  4. Companies that will need to turn something as large as 180°.

The following industries mostly use pallet inverters:

  • Food companies
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Any industry that needs to turn their product 180° e.g. cheese makers 
  • Concrete sections are turned to remove steel moulding
  • Printers need to print on both sides of the paper
  • Makers of laminated products
  • Vineyards also often invert wine bottles after the cork has expanded 
  • Bananas are also inverted after ripening 

The following are a few ways to meet the expectations of any small and mid-sized companies to achieve their goals:

  • Product development

The pallet inverter supplier must regularly design and develop a certain new product to bring into the industrial marketplace. They must also be capable enough to develop the pallet inverter for the customized need of small and mid-sized companies.

The suppliers must be able to develop a sophisticated engineering and manufacturing process that can support the “mass customization” of the 4 basic styles that we have mentioned above. Any small and mid-sized companies will be ready to buy any highly customized solution that solves their specific problem at the right price.

  • Developing innovative tools80

The pallet inverter supplier must develop a capability in their design and engineering team to build something new or unique that can fill a niche in the current market. 

They should not simply serve the requirements of only large companies, but also cater to the need of small and mid-sized companies.

They should also be ready to accept the requests for working on any used or refurbished equipment, particularly for smaller companies, that were perhaps manually flipping products over manually.

Besides these businesses are usually very much concerned about price and always look for a certain affordable product for their needs.

  • By designing for heavy loads

Suppliers of pallet inverters are capable of selling after developing a model that is capable to handle 4,400-lb., 6,600-lb. and 8,800-lb. capacities. 

It is available in 5 standard sizes with several options to handle almost any load transfer, product inverting, and damage recovery requirement.

With the arrival of a new pallet inverter, which is designed for intermittent use it will be more suited to the expectations of smaller companies. This is priced affordably with a more compact design, and is perfect for any tight warehouse space, but can handle the capacity of up to 3,000 pounds.
