FS Pallet Inverter / Flipper
FS Pallet Inverter
The Free standing pallet inverter (also called Pallet Flipper) is great for boxed, bagged or canned goods, and is versatile enough to handle everything from yoghurt and biscuits to bottled wine or cement. Use the FS to switch from wood to plastic pallets, to recover damaged product from the bottom of the stack or to add flexibility to your distribution pallet policy. We can build the FS with a stainless steel turning body, Steel-It paint or with a hot zinc spray rust-protected finish. The FS pallet inverter is by far the most popular model in our range and has not changed greatly in style since we developed the machine 30 years ago. It is ruggedly built, simple to use and above all extremely reliable.
The FS pallet inverter loads at a raised height by forklift, and has one fixed table with a moving top clamp. There are three basic size models with maximum jaw openings of 63 inches, 75 inches and 86 inches.
WHY USE A FREE STANDING PALLET INVERTER:
- As a free standing 180° pallet inverter with single clamping table.
- The FS can be sited indoors or outdoors and being free standing can be easily relocated. It requires a 3 phase power supply.
- It's main use is found in warehouse storage situations switching incoming goods to hygienic or other high quality pallets.
- Equally, it can also be used to retain quality pallets and switch to shipping skids for distribution.
FS stands for Free Standing pallet inverter. In the US the term pallet flipper is often used. This indicate that the only installation required is an electrical connection, and that the inverter itself is stable under its own weight.
The standard and always the most popular model is fitted with lever controls on a short arm. One lever operates the clamp on the pallet inverter and the other turns the load over 180 degrees. There is an option to have the pallet inverter supplied with push button, automated or radio remote controls.
The FS pallet inverter is known for being the work horse of our range with more machines sold each year than most other styles of pallet transfer systems put together. The tables are raised above floor level so it must load by forklift truck. It is available in 3 sizes of jaw opening with special models available above the normal standard maximum of 86 inches.
