Reducing Product Touches Drive Innovation by Magline

To avoid the deflected pallet, Magline innovation drove the use of the aluminum Hand Truck Pallet to move stacked loads. All aluminum construction proves a better choice with a lifetime warranty against rust and unlike plastic pallets, they will not deflect. The exclusive 1-1/4″ bolt-together braces provide strength and durability…no welds.

Additionally, the mini pallet innovation allows for two-way access for pick-up, non-marking rubber feet which will not damage floors, while easy to clean and safe in all work environments. The challenge which required innovation is moving stacked loads. A leader in lean manufacturing, Magline innovation reduces the touches caused by stacking and unstacking.

Testing and evaluation of pallets are conducted according to A.S.T.M. D 1 185-94 Standard Test Methods for Pallets and Related Structures Employed in Materials Handling and Shipping. This test standard takes into account: conditioning, static load compression testing, drop testing, sine vibration and incline impact testing. And the results: plastic pallets deflect.

Supplemental testing often includes random vibration, dynamic compression, and a thirty-day loaded static compression test. Sample pallets are subjected to dynamic compression tests. The pallets have an applied load with a rate of deflection of one inch per minute. This amount is based on the designated weight of the product the pallet is designed to carry. When pallets deflect, there is visible catastrophic damage to the pallet.
