Invert an Entire Pallet Load in Seconds

The PalletPal rotator inverter from Southworth Products Corp. is a fast, safe, and easy way to invert a fully loaded pallet without the need for labor intensive, time-consuming manual restacking.

The most common use of the PalletPal rotator inverter is for switching loads from in-house pallets to shipping pallets or slip sheets. Other uses include replacing broken pallets, replacing damaged boxes or bags (at the bottom of the load), or turning inventory for mixing.

In operation, the load is placed into the unit with a forklift or stacker. The operator then engages the powered clamping mechanism to secure the load. Then at the touch of a button, a massive anti-friction turret bearing rotates the load a full 180° in about 15 seconds. The rotation can be stopped at any point during the process. The clamping mechanism features adjustable pressure to prevent crushing of lighter loads.

Models are available with a load capacity of 4400 lb and clamp openings to accept pallet loads as large as 48 x 48 x 84 in.
