Today there are more compelling reasons than ever before to handle products in a manner that not only controls cost, but also reduces product damage and workplace injuries. Now, B&B Attachments, the UK¡¦s leading supplier of attachments and masts in the UK has teamed up with Kaup GmbH to launch the Pallet Turning Table, an economical and careful way for wholesalers, distribution centres and supermarkets to commission pallets.
Selling goods from pallets causes difficulties when products at the front of the pallet have been removed leaving those at the back hard to reach. Kaup¡¦s Pallet Turning Table is designed to assist with the commissioning of pallets by reducing the amount of manual labour needed to turn pallets around.
With the Kaup Pallet Turning Table, the half-empty pallet is picked up and removed from the shelf by a forklift and placed on the turning table. After the pallet has been positioned and the forks extracted, the table automatically turns 180„a thus making it much easier for staff/customer to pick product. Able to turn pallets of up to 1,000 kg in weight in just 3 to 4 seconds, the Pallet Turning Table is powered by a 24V battery, which provides sufficient power to perform 2,500 pallets.
Units are available to suit pallet lengths of 1200mm with widths of 800,1000 and 1200mm. The unit can also be supplied with remote control for the truck operator to use instead of the automatic system.. Suitable for use with any make of forklift truck, Kaup¡¦s Pallet Turning Table will be a welcome innovation for a wide range of pallet users in areas such as builder¡¦s merchants, wholesalers, supermarkets and distribution centres.
¡§Health and safety is a major issue for companies today and turning pallets of heavy goods around can lead to physical injury¡¨, says Mike Barton, Managing Director, B&B Attachments. ¡§Kaup and B&B Attachments have identified this problem and resolved it with the launch of the Pallet Turning Table¡¨.

From its sites in Newbury, Berkshire and Cramlington, Northumberland, the company operates the UK¡¦s largest fleet of service vehicles in the forklift attachment industry, handling site maintenance and repairs for a client base that includes OEMs, forklift truck dealerships and end users.
