Newest Pallet Offers Unique Lock-Together Design for Extended Service Life
Oconomowoc, Wis. July 12, 2013, – ORBIS Corporation, an international manufacturer of sustainable reusable packaging and an expert in supply chain optimization, has introduced the NovaLock™ Pallet, an all-plastic pallet designed for optimum conveyance of a wide variety of plastic and metal cans and bottles in the food and beverage industries.
When combined with ORBIS divider sheets and top frames, the NovaLock provides maximum product protection and load stability for unitized loads, creating a more efficient shipping system for beverage companies and their suppliers. The full system of plastic pallets, frames and divider sheets are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their service life.
“Beverage companies are eager to reduce can and bottle damage in transit. We are excited to offer this pallet to the beverage industry that values performance, durability and ease of use in the field,” said Chris Shepard, product manager – Beverage Pallets, ORBIS Corporation.
Featuring double-wall construction, it achieves significantly higher impact resistance to reduce the risk of pallet damage, especially from fork tines. If the pallet deck and stringer bottom separates during usage, the unique lock-together design enables the pallet to snap back together under the weight of the load, without manual intervention.
ORBIS’ NovaLock™ is a lightweight, durable and impact resistant pallet that is dimensionally consistent and compatible with many palletizers, depalletizers, automatic strapping/banding systems and conveyers, as well as the market’s existing pallet offerings. Additional benefits include:
- Flat deck to reduce risk of can damage
- Beveled bottom stringer for improved hand truck access
- Full fork truck and hand truck access, from any side
- Optional food grade material available
The 44.0 in. x 56.0 in. NovaLock is injection foam molded in high-density polyethylene plastic. Its flow-through rib design offers exceptional cleanability and is compatible with various pallet-washing systems.
