Reasons for reducing the service life of wooden pallets

2021-09-28

Now that the industry is mature, China's manufacturing industry is well-known in the world. Wooden pallets can be seen everywhere in the production and logistics sites of various industries, and their use is very common. As an important logistics transportation carrier, wooden pallets can be reused, so how to use wooden pallets properly to better extend their service life?

1. The stacking is too high:
In order to save warehouse space, some manufacturers stack wooden pallets in multiple layers. This will cause too much pressure on the bottom wooden pallets, and the super high can easily collapse and cause accidents. Generally, wooden pallets can only be stacked in two layers, and wooden cover plates should be added between the goods.

 2. Forklift injury:
 When moving the wooden pallet, the distance between the two forks should be as wide as possible to the outer edge of the fork inlet of the wooden pallet, and the depth of the fork should be greater than 2/3 of the depth of the entire wooden pallet. When hydraulic trucks and forklifts use wooden pallets for dynamic loading, they should maintain a constant speed to advance and retreat and up and down to avoid sudden braking and sudden rotation that may cause damage to the pallet and cause the collapse of the goods. wooden pallet Chuan-shaped pallets should be inserted into the fork without a bottom surface as much as possible, and the fork should be inserted accurately and smoothly into the wooden pallet socket to avoid damage to the wooden pallet.

3. Man-made injuries:

In order to complete the tasks ahead of schedule, some forklift workers use the two forks of the forklift to push the wooden pallets.


4. Overload:
Generally, wooden pallets should have load requirements when purchasing. It should not be overweight or high in use. The height should generally be controlled at 2/3 of the width of the wooden pallet. When the wooden pallet is stationary, the maximum strength that can be carried on the wooden pallet is different. The static load of the wooden pallet of different structures is different: the double-sided structure has the greatest strength.
