Why Cutting Corners on Pallet Quality Isn’t Worth the Savings

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Sep 16, 2023 7:30:00 AM

Your business relies on quality products, including quality pallets, to fulfill orders and meet the needs of your customers. A poorly constructed pallet or a pallet made from poor-quality materials can cause many problems. You might save a little money on your pallets by using cheap wood or fasteners, but is it worth it?

The FASCO® (a BECK brand) CN15W-57A ES MAG STIRRUP Nailing Head System for automation includes automatic sensor-controlled fastening to avoid dry fires and a customizable magazine for different coil sizes. This system works efficiently, and it’s fast to reload, so you can finish projects quickly and then move on. BECK's 15-degree wire coil nails (High-Load) are designed to withstand a variety of challenging conditions, for years of use.

Below are some of the consequences of building poor-quality pallets, and good reasons to use FASCO® Nailing Head Systems.

Solutions to Pallet Problems for Pallet Manufacturers

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on May 20, 2023 7:30:00 AM

Pallets are one of the most important and perhaps under-appreciated fixtures in warehouses, loading docks, and stockrooms around the country. Without pallets, the global manufacturing, transportation, and logistics system that delivers goods around the world would function very differently. Pallets truly are a critical component of the system that allows us to ship products around the globe.

It's important when shipping and transporting goods across city, state, or international borders that the pallets used are of sturdy construction. Pallets aren't made to be beautiful, but they must be durable, strong, and well-constructed to function. The Mezger® Stapling Head Systems are the perfect tool for constructing strong pallets. These pneumatic nailing and stapling systems allow for the easy, fast construction of wooden structures. If you're a pallet manufacturer, here's what to know about making strong pallets with durable materials.
