Product Info

FS Pallet Inverter

The Free standing pallet inverter is great for boxed, bagged or canned goods, and is versatile enough to handle everything from yoghurt and biscuits to bottled wine or cement. Use the FS to switch from wood to plastic pallets, to recover damaged product from the bottom of the stack or to add flexibility to your distribution pallet policy. We can build the FS with a stainless steel lined turning body or with a hot zinc spray rust-protected finish. The FS pallet inverter is by far the most popular model in our range and has not changed greatly in style since we developed the machine 30 years ago. It is ruggedly built, simple to use and above all extremely reliable.
The FS pallet inverter loads at a raised height by forklift, and has one fixed table with a moving top clamp. There are three basic size models with maximum jaw openings of 1600mm, 1900mm and 2200mm.

More about the FS Pallet Inverter

how fs works

FS stands for Free Standing pallet inverter. This indicates that the only installation required is an electrical connection, and that the inverter itself is stable under its own weight.
The standard and always the most popular model is fitted with lever controls on a short arm. One lever operates the clamp on the pallet inverter and the other turns the load over 180 degrees. There is an option to have the pallet inverter supplied with push button, automated or infra-red controls.
The FS pallet inverter is known for being the work horse of our range with more machines sold each year than most other styles of pallet transfer systems put together.

The tables are raised above floor level so it must load by forklift truck. It is available in 3 sizes of jaw opening with special models available above the normal standard maximum of 2.20m.

Using a FS Pallet Inverter:

  • As a free standing 180° pallet inverter with single clamping table.
  • The FS can be sited indoors or outdoors and being free standing can be easily relocated. It requires a 3 phase power supply.
  • Its main use is found in warehouse storage situations switching incoming goods to hygienic or other high quality pallets.
  • Equally, it can also be used to retain quality pallets and switch to shipping pallets for distribution.

The FS pallet inverter is simple to use, simple to maintain and above all has a very long lifespan. We have many pallet inverters still in regular use 15 to 20 years after construction. The FS pallet inverter will handle almost any type of palletized load and can exert a high clamping pressure on slippery or unstable goods if need be. Premier maintains a permanent stock of new and used FS models, available at very short notice.
