With the clamping method, the load is firmly clamped from both sides. Then the pallet is lowered and can easily be replaced by a new one. This procedure is the simplest and most inexpensive way of pallet changing.


The requirements: The goods have to be robust, pressure-resistant, and tightly stacked. The clamping method is perfect for the pallet changing of cartons or boxes. It is also often used for the changing of badly damaged pallets.


The clamping method is the simplest way of pallet changing and particularly suited for robust goods.

A pallet changer using the clamping method can either work as a stand-alone element or be integrated into a material flow system. The exchanger is loaded and unloaded via a manual or electric pallet truck. Sidewalls clamp the load and then the pallet will be lowered by the pallet truck. Now the pallets can be changed fast and easy. Integrated into a material flow system the pallet changing is done by a lift conveyor. The clamping method neither inverts or tilts the load.

The clamping method is particularly suitable for goods that are stable under pressure and stacked squared up without gaps. This type of pallet changer convinces with its low price and its easy application. The clamping walls grip the stacked goods from two sides and fix them. Then the pallet is lowered and removed. So it can easily be replaced by any other load carrier. This procedure is recommended for the pallet exchange of insensitive goods such as cardboard boxes, beverage boxes, or crates. They are moved in with an electric or pallet truck. Alternatively, the pallet handling can be designed fully automatically using a conveyor line.
