New Improvements to The Pallet Design System™ 6.1

Upgrades in PDS 6.1

PDS 6.1 incorporates frequently possible client-mentioned highlights notwithstanding expanded execution for panel deck pallets.

Enhancements and brand new features comprised of in PDS 6.1 are:

  • Doubled the number of stringers for stringer pallets
  • CP7 Pallets can now be analyzed as well as designed
  • Better able to capture performance differences between designs
  • Updated properties for air-dried softwood pallets

Doubled the number of stringers for stringer pallets from a limit of nine to eighteen. This permits truly wide pallets utilized for siding and other long, semi-rigid items to be planned and assessed.

As much as 2 base deck boards arranged between blocks, running corresponding to the pallet length can be investigated. CP7 pallets would now be able to be assessed, as well as designed.

More refined panel deck pallet examination plans are better able to catch execution qualifications in the middle of styles.

Updated properties for air-dried softwood pallets that are assembled green and dried before use.

PDS 6.1

PDS 6.1 permits the plan of very wide stringer pallets with up to 18 Stringers. These pallets are typically used for transporting packages of home siding, consistent drains, or other long items that support their own weight.

This expansion is the underlying advance in building up a system to assess unit loads of sheet goods and other semi-rigid long items, empowering reasonable load ratings to be sorted out for forklifting.

PDS 6.1 can unmistakably assess block pallets with up to two bottom deck boards in the middle of the squares that run corresponding to the main stringer boards.

This is needed to assess CP-7 pallets as these pallets have one base deck board between blocks.

Previously, the investigation did not consider the base deck boards in the middle of the squares as adding to the snugness and strength of the pallet.

With this new element, the racked across length strength for these pallets is incredibly improved.

It’s a Hard Knock Life for Pallets

It's a Hard Knock Life for Pallets

Pallets and packaging tend to go through a lot of rough times, as they fulfill all of their many responsibilities.

Once created, they are used in various ways, by different people. This involves people buying the pallets and packaging, while others use them however they choose to. As stakeholders in pallet providing companies come to realize how their processes were costing them unnecessary money, they began to think of how they could put the pallets and packaging to better use.

 
It was thought that if prices of the pallets and packaging increase, that the stakeholders would have the ability to save money in other areas. However, the purchasers did not agree with the price increase idea. Another idea, was changing how the pallets and packaging are treated and put together, would be a solution. But when thinking about all of the details that are involved, some complications could possibly arise. To start the process, all T’s must be crossed, and all I must be dotted. This would mean that stakeholders will be involved early in the process, rather than waiting until later in the process to get them involved. Aside from the stakeholders, the equipment that are used for the pallets and packaging need to undergo some changes as well. In order to correct the problem, changes have to be made to every part of the supply chain, not just one area of it. When it comes down to it, the design of the pallets and packaging can make a big difference in how they are handled, and in how long they will last.
