Material Handling Equipment

Material handling is a necessary and significant component of any productive activity. Material handling means providing the right amount of material, in the right condition, at the right place, time and position for the right cost and method. It applies to the movement of raw materials, parts in process, finished goods, packing materials, and disposal of scraps.

The product also determines what type of conveyor is used. Common types of conveyor are gravity, belt, powered roller, line shaft, chain, transfer, hinged steel belt, modular plastic, table top, slat, overhead and vertical. They can also be referred to as carton or pallet conveyors.

Conveyors can be set up to run continuously , indexing or accumulation. Conveyors can separate, induct, divert and re-circulate items within a distribution or warehouse center. Conveyor systems are ideal for sorting out products from infeed lines to inspection areas, shipping lanes, palletizing operations, packing stations and stretch wrap machines.

More items are shipped on skids or pallets than all other packaging methods combined. Loading and unloading these pallets is always a backbreaking, time-consuming job.  PalletPal products speed up and simplify the process, safely increasing the amount of goods that can be shipped or received every day.

Two decades ago, Southworth introduced the original PalletPal Level Loader for manual pallet loading and unloading. Since then, the line has grown to include:

Transporting and Lifting with Pallet Lifts

Transporting pallet loads creates bottlenecks as workers wait for forklifts and trained operators. A Southworth stacker is like having a forklift at a fraction of the cost. They are easier to integrate into your operation because unlike forklifts that require certified operators, any trained employee can use pallet lifts. Their versatility makes them ideal for feeding rack and other pallet storage transfer operations.

Rotating or Inverting...

The PalletPal Pallet Rotator/Inverter can rotate an entire pallet load in under a minute to access items at the bottom with no manual re-stacking. Jobs that can done faster. safer & easier with PalletPal Rotator/Inverter include:
