Properties of Shredded Wood Pallets
About 321 million wooden pallets repaired every year in the United State. During the pallet repair process the unusable pallets are ground into mulch that are often used for animal bedding or other sensitive applications. The objective of this research was to characterize the physical and chemical properties of wood particles produced from mechanically ground discarded wood pallets with the goal to identify known contaminants.
How to Determine the Load Capacity of Pallets - ISTA Transpack 2016
Properly determining the exact load carrying capacity of pallets is essential to ensure the effectiveness of the supply chain. Multiple testing procedures are published by different organizations that could be used to estimate the load capacity of pallets. The presentation covers the differences between various ASTM, ISO, and AIAG pallet testing standards, show design requirements required by big box stores, and show how the load carrying capacity could depend on the types of load carried by the pallet.
Technology Development in Reusable Packaging Systems - RPA Forum in Modex 2016
There are many developments in the global supply chain that will change the way how we design reusable packaging materials. The presentation covers initiatives such as the physical internet initiative, modern warehouses, additive manufacturing, e-commerce, and innovative tracking technologies.
