Commenting on the study Jim Hardisty, managing director at, said: “When companies are looking to invest in automated equipment, pallets are often the last thing they consider. As pallet quality can have an impact on operational efficiency in automated handling scenarios, it is crucial that pallets are considered much earlier on in the purchase process.”
One of the benefits of’s Euro E7 pallet is that is has the exact dimensions of a wooden Euro-pallet so can be easily integrated into automated systems that have already been customised for wooden pallets. The Euro E7 promises 100% dimensional accuracy, eliminating machine disruption and operational downtime.
This means that the plastic Euro E7 pallet can run in a conveyor system parallel to existing wooden pallets without any need for adjustment, equally, it can also be used as a shuttle for any defective wooden pallets.
The pallet comes on three runners with steel bars in the deck for enhanced strength and stability – even with the heaviest loads. When static the pallet can bear up to 5,000kg, while on the move it can support 1,500kg and 1,250kg in racking.
Red anti-slip strips and stoppers are a standard feature of the pallet, but there are options to customise the pallet to suit different applications.
