The Convenience of a Pallet Positioner
Factories, service centers and other industrial settings are very busy places with limited space. People, equipment and products fill up the floor and require facility managers to think strategically about how they will maximize every square foot of their space to its full potential. It can be difficult for operators to maneuver mobile machinery like forklifts or pallet trucks under these conditions, raising the risk of injury or damage to property. Regardless, loaded pallets have to be moved around somehow, so companies need a solution to their problem. This is where a pallet positioner comes in handy.
A pallet positioner allows a loaded pallet to be raised and lowered using a set of controls that respond to the operator�s input. Our Ez-Loader pallets come in several different types, but each one can be lowered to the ground or raised several feet for convenient access during loading and unloading of the contents. Just like a worktable, this feature makes it easier for worker by enabling them to work at waist height and avoid strain that could lead to back injuries.
Some of our Ez-Loader pallet positioners are built with a round platform that rotates a full 360 degrees to allow a forklift to approach and pick it up from any angle. If the pallet is being loaded near a wall or other objects that could limit access to it, this feature makes taking the pallet away much less complicated for the equipment operator. Our EZ-Loader SS pallet positioner is constructed with an entirely stainless steel frame and platform for food and pharmaceutical applications where frequent washing is necessary. The stainless steel is easy to clean and resistant to corrosion. Pallet positioners are capable of holding and lifting thousands of pounds, so they are the perfect tool for heavy industrial processes where bulk loads are being packaged and transferred all of the time.
If your floor space is limited and you need a machine to help improve your workflow, contact us to learn more about our pallet positioners. You can also browse through the various pallet positioners that we manufacture under the Ez-Loader tab on our website. At Bishamon, we work harder to make your job easier.

Bishamon Industries Corporation � LiftPilot
For over two decades, Bishamon Industries has been paving a new path in the material handling industry by producing some of the most innovative, ergonomic and high-quality products in the business. Their newest product, the Bishamon Lift Pilot stays true to their value in quality and service.
Keeping workers� safety and efficiency in mind, the Bishamon Lift Pilot features multiple avenues of value like its patent pending �Space Saving� feature, patented �Foot Clear� safety design, pallet truck accessibility, pallet presence sensors and telescopic forks.
Its telescopic forks pick up pallets from the floor, eliminating the need for fork lifts altogether. While suspended, the operator can adjust the height to his or her preferred height while having access to all three sides of the pallet for easy loading and unloading.
Currently the smallest footprint in the industry, the Lift Pilot measures only 37� by 40�. In fact, it is approximately 60% smaller than the competing pan lift. The lack of ramps, bumps or obstructions eliminates any reach over, compared to a 11� to 15� reach over with pan lifts, significantly reducing workplace injuries.
Whether you are looking for a space saving, ergonomic solution or an easier way to increase productivity, the Lift Pilot is the answer. We deeply value our customers and we plan to continue to provide the best, most innovative products on the market.

Bishamon Industries Corporation � The benefits of a pallet positioner
As the name might suggest, a pallet positioner is used to raise and turn pallets in industrial and commercial facilities. Pallets are very convenient because they can be used to stack heavy parts or products, and they can easily be wheeled around a facility using a forklift or pallet truck. The problem is that pallets can be difficult to turn in the right direction once they are loaded, and floor height might not be the most convenient height while goods are being loaded onto the pallet. For example, if you were stacking small boxes onto a pallet after they had been packaged on a table, it would be convenient if the pallet was at waist height when you started out. If it wasn�t, you would be constantly bending over and may have risked hurting your back during extended periods of work. Thankfully, a pallet positioner provides the perfect solution to this problem.
Pallet positioners like the ones available in the EZ Loader lineup from Bishamon Industries make it easy to raise, lower and position pallets. The platform holds the bottom of the pallet and is moved using air pressure or hydraulic pressure. The platform can be lowered to ground level or raised up several feet off of the ground. Some pallet positioners have a non-rotating rectangular platform, while others include a rotating platform that can be moved by hand or by motor. This rotating platform makes it easy to turn the pallet around during loading. Some of our pallet positioner models are even made in stainless steel for wipe down applications. The anti- corrosive properties of the stainless steel make the equipment more durable and easier to clean on a regular basis.
Some pallet positioners have a very small ramp that makes the platform completely level with the ground so even a pallet that already has weight on it can be rolled onto the platform using a pallet truck. The convenience and power of a pallet positioner aid in the efficiency of a busy industrial or commercial workplace. By taking the strain out of repetitive tasks, this piece of equipment prevents workplace injuries and damage to property caused by poor handling techniques.
Take a look at our full lineup of convenient work place products and call Bishamon when you are ready to make your job easier!

Bishamon Industries Corporation � Pallet Trucks
Pallet trucks are used in commercial and industrial facilities to move pallets loaded with heavy materials. Although they are not motorized, they enable one person to easily move very heavy objects simply by wheeling them along a level surface. A pallet truck can be especially useful in tight spaces like the trailer of a transport truck where there is no room for a full-sized fork lift to maneuver. The handle of a pallet truck swivels 180 degrees, moving a central pivot wheel beneath it to allow for maximum maneuverability around corners. This movement makes it very easy to store a pallet full of goods up against a wall until it is needed.
The lifting mechanism of a pallet truck is either manually operated by pumping the handle to exert hydraulic force, or motorized with a set of controls on the handle that move the pallet forks up and down. In either type, there is a release switch the relieves the hydraulic pressure used to lift heavy pallets up, causing the pallet truck to slowly go down and return the pallet to a resting position on the ground. Pallet forks have to be maintained by keeping their pumps full of hydraulic fluid so that the forks do not sink back down when weight is applied to them. Lubrication should also be applied to the wheels of the pallet fork to keep it rolling and turning smoothly.
The forks of a pallet truck usually do not raise more than a few inches off the ground as their primary purpose is simply to move heavy pallets across the floor. If pallets need to be raised and stacked or loaded on to a truck, a fork lift is used because it can lift them much higher. Bishamon�s sturdy pallet trucks come in three different types, with weight capacities ranging from 2,500 pounds to our heavy-duty model with a capacity of up to 6,500 pounds. These products are all strong, easy to maintain, and highly reliable. Unlike a fork lift, a pallet truck will not break down or require costly engine maintenance to perform effectively. This means less down time for your business and less strain on your employees when heavy objects need to be moved. The simple but effective hydraulic power of a pallet truck makes it a must-have tool for daily lifting jobs in a busy workplace.
