August 21, 2017 – St. Louis, Missouri – BHS, Inc., a leading manufacturer of battery handling and warehouse equipment, recently introduced the Pallet Carousel & Skid Positioner (PCP). This ergonomic lift table self-levels to a comfortable height and rotates pallets for easy access.
The Pallet Carousel & Skid Positioner has a small base so workers can stand closer to pallets and keep heavy items closer to their core. The full 360-degree tabletop rotation keeps reaching to a minimum. BHS engineers designed every aspect of the PCP with worker safety and productivity in mind.
“Warehouse managers are looking to increase efficiency and reduce strains and injuries any way they can,” said Melissa Bowen from BHS Marketing. “The Pallet Carousel & Skid Positioner is a commonsense solution that accomplishes both goals.”
The Pallet Carousel & Skid Positioner comes in two models that are both self-leveling—one spring-operated and the other pneumatic. The spring-operated model contains three heavy-duty springs that automatically adjust pallet height. It is completely automatic and requires no power or air supply.
The pneumatic model has a 7-ply reinforced airbag and can be disconnected from the air supply once inflated. Both models come with a variety of optional features.
“One of the advantages of manufacturing our equipment on site is that we can offer a large number of customizations,” said Bowen. “Whether a buyer wants casters for added mobility or a stainless steel carousel for hygienic applications, we’re equipped to add those features.”
The spring-operated model has dampeners to provide smooth, gradual raising and lowering without bounce. Sealed ball bearings make rotating the tabletop effortless.
Two-way fork pockets allow forklifts to move the PCP and a powder coat finish helps the equipment endure harsh warehouse environments. The stable design of the Pallet Carousel & Skid Positioner eliminates the need to anchor the unit to the floor.
“When a piece of equipment makes work faster and safer, employers quickly get on board.” Bowen said. “When it makes completing work easier, employees are happy, too.”
