TITLE
Pallet lifting device
ARTICLE
Concerns were raised by operatives regarding the lifting and bending involved when batching. The operation involved adding steel wire which came in 25kg boxes. The wire had to be introduced slowly on to the material batch belt as the weight being lifted caused problems to the operators.

To overcome this issue, a pallet lifting device has been introduced. This has reduced the number of bending and lifting movements by plant operatives.
