The pallet exchange process involves rotating the product 180°. Initially, the pallet turning device approaches the goods and inserts two forks underneath the pallet to lift it up from its base and onto two upper forks. At this point, the product is secured and completely safe.
The product, along with the pallet, is then rotated by 90°, followed by a 180° rotation of the entire pallet. The pallet is then rotated back by 90° to its initial position. With these operations complete, the product is now on the new pallet and can be easily picked up by the operator. The pallet exchange operation is carried out manually by the operator, who removes the original pallet and inserts the destination pallet.
To complete the process and have the product with the new pallet underneath it, the reverse operation is performed by overturning the product and rotating it again by 180°. Once this is complete, the product is ready for use with the new pallet.
