Textile pallet dividers, supplied horizontally
Long or flat parts can be transported in the most ergonomic way in packages that are filled and emptied at the front. The positioning of the parts forms a horizontal nesting, being protected against mechanical shocks associated with transport or handling during the packaging or placement in production processes.
For this, Logimarkt has developed a series of concepts such as:
- Flatpac with open front but still foldable (can be placed in containers KTP 114888, KTP 114777, 114999, Ecopacks). These systems are foldable.
- Magnum Optimum with collar for storing the textile separator when folded
- Foldable metal rack which folds together with the separator
- Rigid metal rack
- Trolleys with sliding components
The separators may have vertical or horizontal reinforcements, plastic plate reinforcements or technical foam. If the part has certain very sensitive areas, there can be made cuts or be positioned thermoformed plates inside the pockets.
The containers can be equipped with anti-dust tarpaulins, but which allow a very good visibility.
If the packaging needs to be changed, the separators can be easily removed, and the container can be equipped with a new type of textile partitions.
Metal racks can be pulled or pushed using tow trucks.
Textile pallet pallet dividers, supplied vertically
Textile dividers in which the parts are placed from top to bottom, can have several levels that may be accessed in turn, by sliding the level above. The pieces are positioned between the levels, thus making a vertical nesting.
Logimarkt can make the sliding system using bars and eyelets or hooks that slide easily into aluminum profiles with a special treatment inside. For heavy weights, we have developed a new type of slide that has metal support profiles for each row.
Logimarkt design team has paid close attention to ergonomics for users, with small design details that make it easier for textiles to slip and eliminate noise, or that make it easier to fold and unfold empty containers, even with textile dividers inside.
Textile pockets can be fitted with foam inside and we have developed numerous designs that avoid contact of the products with the sewn area or keep the products away from each other.
These systems can be installed in Flatpac type plastic pallets (KTP 114888, KTP 114777, KTP System 2000, Ecopacks) or injected folding pallets (Magnum Optimum, Klappa), metal SLI containers or various metal racks.
Textile box dividers
The textile separators for boxes are custom made, depending on the dimensions of the outer packaging (box, box pallet, metal rack) in which they are placed, the particularities and constraints of the products, the ergonomic requirements and the necessary handling methods.
They are preferred in the automotive industry, but also in other industries, such as electronics, or the production of sensitive objects like glass or fragile components of medical devices.
Specific advantages of textile separators:
- allow the boxes to be folded when they are empty
- allow the nesting of the parts inside the box
- easy to use by operators (ergonomic)
Logimarkt cuts the materials with CNC Laser in the case of woven materials, in order to weld the edges and prevent the threads from coming off. Sewing is done manually but also with automatic machines to increase productivity and accuracy.
Types of textiles used by Logimarkt:
- Tyvek 1082D
- Tyvek 2473L
- Vapor Fabric (allows humidity to get out, but protects against rain)
- TNT Spunbond (PPNT)
- Royal Fabric
- ESD Fabric
Types of foam used by Logimarkt:
- Antistatic EPE
- Antistatic PU foam
- ESD Foam
- Eva foam
- Laminated foam
“Vapoir Fabric” materials help to ventilate the moisture and prevent condensation inside the packaging by allowing moisture to exit but not for the water to enter.
Evolon, Tyvek, Astonika, Microfiber, PVC – are recommended for scratch-sensitive surfaces.
Pellucid – allows easy viewing of the parts inside, ensuring the smooth running of the activity in terms of operation.
The ergonomic positioning of parts in containers must take into account certain parameters, namely the thickness, length and sensitive surface of the part, the type of supply that can be horizontally or vertically, and the movement to which the operator is subjected.
The textile material can also be used in combination with the alveolar plastic, obtaining this way a rigid product with an anti-scratch surface that ensures the protection of the products against shocks. Thus, by laminating the alveolar plastic with textile material, we obtain a resistant product which offers to the packed parts a high degree of protection in case of impact. At the same time, it ensures the positioning of the parts at the same level, eliminating the possibility of slipping or deformations.
Adapted interiors prevent the damage of the parts by collision or friction, as they will not come into contact with other parts stored in the container, making it easier for operators to handle them.
Non-woven fabric internal dunnage are easy to handle and also make it easy to check the large parts (car bars, doors, steering wheels, mirrors) or those of aspect which are stored in compartments, by opening the separators from their top or lateral side.
They has a very high degree of folding, so it takes up very little space for storage or return transport, which means lower costs in the long run.
Non-woven textile packaging, tarpaulin, PVC, polyamide are mainly used in the automotive industry and they help reduce transportation costs by increasing the number of products transported, by up to 30%.
Non-woven spunbond separators can be designed to fold together with the outer packaging, their removal for return transport is not necessary, which brings an increase in productivity, saving space in storage, lower costs in return transport.
