Breaks down the problem of splitting pallet loads.
Responding to the warehouse and logistics industry's requirements for an innovative forklift attachment to aid faster handling of palleted commodities, B&B Attachments, the UK's leading supplier of forklift truck attachments and masts, has launched Layer Master. A revolutionary new clamp specifically designed to cope with palleted loads that require splitting for easier handling and storage, Layer Master eliminates manual handling and helps prevent damage.
Very versatile, the Layer Master can lift a third of a 2400mm high pallet at a time or alternatively just a single layer of boxes, thereby enabling the load to be quickly broken down or built up by clamping single or multiple layers. This ensures product is handled quickly and safely with minimum use of resources.
The Layer Master can be adjusted for a wide range of products including boxed and frozen goods, glass and plastics containers, tinned products and plastic trays. As it makes contact with the load on all four sides it requires minimal force to lift, thereby eliminating any possible damage to the packaging or product. Where multiple layer weights or varying products need to be handled, a special pressure valve with three different pressure ranges can be supplied and fitted by B&B Attachments qualified engineers.
The Layer Master fork lift truck mounted system, can quickly be moved to any location within a warehouse thereby helping speed up the movement of goods in fast moving environments. It is available in three different mounting types to suit specific requirements and forklift truck fleets.
The static mounted Layer Master option is already proving invaluable in warehouses where numerous operators need instruction to use the system. As it is a stand-alone device, operatives require only hand or pallet truck training rather than a full forklift truck licence and being a fixed, safe and controlled process there is little opportunity for misuse, product damage or equipment mishandling.
Already in use within the fresh produce sector, the system is also being trialled by most major supermarket distribution centres. The speed and versatility of the patented system will help companies meet Health & Safety requirements whilst simultaneously increasing productivity and reducing time and labour.
B&B Attachments revolutionary Layer Master clamp is set to revolutionise the way palletised loads can be handled. It is supported by B&B Attachments unique nationwide after sales service division, which is the largest in the forklift truck industry.
