Sitecraft provides custom and engineered material handling solutions Australia wide with a design and manufacturing facility in Melbourne and sales offices in Sydney and Brisbane.
Pallet handling equipment and pallet lifting equipment is used extensively for a wide range of industries. Most warehouses and factories are always searching for the most efficient methods and processes to produce maximum results, all while maintaining strict workplace safety standards.
When it comes to increasing the efficiency and safety of your warehouse and manufacturing operations, Sitecraft’s quality range of pallet handling equipment is developed and manufactured with operator safety in mind. Offering an extensive selection of standard and custom products for sale, all our handling equipment meets the specific pallet lifting requirements for a range of workplaces and industries.
If safety regulators were asked for one piece of advice about manual handling risk in workplaces and warehouses, they would probably all say, ‘avoid lifting’. Of course, in reality we know that’s not entirely possible. However, with the right pallet lifting equipment and devices, we can eliminate most of the risks associated with heavy lifting.
The target for reducing this common cause of injury even has its own ergonomic catch phrase – Large, Bulky or Awkward Items (LBAIs) – which makes the point that risk from lifting is not just about “heavy” objects (weighing more than 25 kg).
And if safety regulators were asked for a solution for reducing manual handling risk they would probably all mention “mechanical lifters”. Pallet handling equipment, like any other form of materials handling equipment, is constantly undergoing technical improvements. These advancements in technology are providing more effective and safer options for handling a wide range of materials. The comprehensive selection of pallet moving equipment, pallet jacks, stackers, lifters and even pallet trucks continues to expand, so that there are options to suit many types of workplaces, layouts and processes.
The National Code of Practice for Hazardous Tasks 2016 adopted by most state safety regulators refers to the task of stacking goods onto a pallet as one of the common tasks that puts workers at risk. The document goes on to suggest a pallet jack, lift tables and lift trolleys as examples of mechanical solutions. The Palift is a spring loaded positioner designed to eliminate the bending required when loading or unloading palletised products.
Our large range of motorised and manually operated pallet jacks for sale, feature equipment that is designed to efficiently move a wide range of loads. We have options to suit almost any requirement in almost any workplace, warehouse and factory. For extra heavy weights, look at our high-capacity pallet truck /pallet jack models, which can move loads up to 5000 kg. For narrow skids and totes, our narrow width trucks are ideal, featuring a jack with an overall tyne width of just 450 mm. They are also available in powered, electric and motorised variants for ease and safety when moving heavy loads.
The popular spring loaded pallet lift turntable is a spring operated self-levelling pallet lifting device that raises and lowers loads automatically, depending on the weight of the goods or product being loaded or unloaded. This allows the product to be positioned at the most ergonomically and comfortable work positions for operators.
Pallet inverters are ideal for rotating boxed, bagged or canned goods. These are widely used for switching outgoing loads to shipping or expendable pallets. They can be also used to transfer from wood to plastic or other hygiene pallets. The pallet inverter can be loaded by forklift truck or at ground level with a hand pallet truck.
The versatile Quikstak smart stackers are specifically designed to minimise the risk of repetitive strain and back injury whilst also improving productivity. Fitted with an infra-red height sensor, the Quikstak detects the height of the load. The fork height is then automatically raised and lowered to suit operator working height. These are widely used in food manufacturing and processing, packaging lines and assembly areas.
Sitecraft is a specialist supplier of hydraulic scissor lift tables. These are widely used in heavy industries, chemical plants, manufacturing and in many other applications requiring the elevating of heavy and awkward loads. Our range includes stainless steel scissor lift tables for use in hygiene critical areas and in corrosive environments. Our popular low profile scissor lift tables allow goods to be loaded and unloaded with a pallet jack.
Pallet turntables are used to easily rotate palletised products for easy loading and unloading. At Sitecraft, we really do satisfy your total pallet handling equipment and pallet lifting needs.
