Pneumatic Palletizer Is Ergonomic, Economical

The new PalletPal 360 Air level loader from Southworth Products allows operators to build or break down pallet loads with a minimum of bending, reaching, stretching, or walking around. The unit automatically adjusts the height of pallets as boxes are added or removed. Height adjustment is achieved by a heavy-duty reinforced rubber air bag that maintains the top layer of stacked containers at a convenient height.

The PalletPal 360 Air can accommodate loads from 400 to 4,500 lbs. And the unit’s turntable ring (or optional turntable platform) allows the user to effortlessly rotate the load so he or she can stand in the same spot throughout the loading or unloading process.

Unlike most competitive models, all of the unit’s components are contained within the diameter of the turntable ring so users can step closer, allowing full 360º access. This makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer, and easier, virtually eliminating lifting and the other productivity-robbing, injury-producing movements common to pallet-loading applications. The PalletPal 360 Air is also ideal for non-uniform loads. The base of the unit is extremely stable and requires no floor lagging.

The unit requires no electrical power. Once the air bag is inflated by shop air or a portable compressor, it can be used anywhere. Fork pockets at the base allow for easy relocation.
