Why is Pallet Racking Storage and Manually Handling Product so Expensive?

The Problem.

If you need a mixed pallet you do what’s known as 'Hand-Stacking' or ‘Hand-Bombing’. You know, where you take all the beverage cases you don’t want from the top of a pallet and replace them with all the beverage cases you do want, so that your pallet would be mixed for any custom or special sized orders. (or maybe you just want to fill your truck to its limit)   The problem has always been that It’s very time consuming (instead of moving a pallet onto the truck within 30 seconds, you're now spending a few minutes to try and mix the pallets before you can start moving them to the truck) also it’s messy, it’s dangerous and more often than not, you have some spillage or broken or crushed product. That’s what it’s been like for the past 50 years of palleting products around. The bottom line is until ‘The Bomber’ was created, we all did the same thing with pallets.

'The Bomber' is 2 to 5 times faster than ‘Hand-Bombing’

With ‘The Bomber’ it saves you time, headaches and of course your bottom line.

Just what can ‘The Bomber’ do?

  • Full pallet exchange
  • Pallet splitting or Upstacking
  • Partial pallets
  • Pallet makeup
  • Damaged layer repair
  It even works when your traditional methods have trouble, like with plastic bottles, or fruit and vegetables. It was built to handle all of our and now all of your pallet splitting and layer picking needs.  

How does it work?

Simple. It uses a hydraulic clamping system to contain the product, then the huge metal blades are placed underneath to support the product, no matter the size or amount. Then a safety curtain rolls out to protect the product above and below.

What Kinds of Products Does it Work With?

  • Odd shaped Glass or Plastic Bottles
  • Beverage Cans
  • Packaged Goods (wet, dry, glass or plastic)
  • Vegetables and Fruit (including watermelons)
  • Anything you can think of!
  If you have a small warehouse, a shared one, a large one or several, you can’t work with pallet’s without having ‘The Bomber’ as one of your tools.  

Rethink Pallet Handling

Your employees become more efficient as they spend less time moving cases, they become safer with less pallet lifter, walkie rider and forklift accidents and you can take more custom orders and fulfill requirements that you could never think of doing before. Lower time, and more orders means one thing. More money for you. Ask us to do an ROI report for you, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
