Title
(EN) A PALLET WHICH IS NESTABLE WHEN STACKED
(FR) PALETTE EMBOITABLE A EMPILER
Abstract
(EN)
Stackable galvanised metal pallet (10) for transportation and storage of goods, which is nestable when stacked while empty of goods to reduce the volume of stacked pallets. The pallet comprises a storage platform (11) having a top side (12) and an under side (13), wherein said goods are positioned on the top side of said platform; a support means comprising a plurality of tapered members (14-19) depending downwardly from the underside of the storage platform (11) to raise the platform from the surface on which the pallet rests; and receiving means adapted to receive the support means of another pallet when stacked upon the pallet, the receiving means comprising a plurality of tapered recesses (20-25) being complementary in shape to the tapered members of said other upper pallet. A resilient material (38-43) such as rubber or elastomeric polymer can be bonded to the base of the tapered members. Also disclosed is a process for manufacturing a pallet comprising providing a piece of sheet metal and forming (e.g. pressing) the piece of sheet metal into the desired configuration for a pallet.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une palette (10) métallique galvanisée empilable destinée au transport de marchandises, que l'on peut emboîter, vide, afin de réduire le volume de palettes empilées. La palette comporte une plate-forme de stockage (11) présentant une surface supérieure (12) et une surface inférieure (13). Les marchandises sont posées sur la surface supérieure de ladite plate-forme. Un moyen d'appui comprenant plusieurs éléments coniques (14 19) descendant de la partie inférieure de la plate-forme de stockage (11) de façon à relever ladite plate-forme de la surface sur laquelle la palette repose. Des moyens de réception conçus pour recevoir les moyens d'appui d'une autre palette empilée sur ladite palette, les moyens de réception comportant plusieurs évidements coniques (20 25) dont la forme correspond à celle des éléments coniques de la palette supérieure. Un matériau élastique (38 43), tel que le caoutchouc ou un polymère élastomère, peut être lié à la base des éléments coniques. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication d'une palette comportant une pièce en tôle et de formage (par exemple par pression) de ladite pièce en tôle selon la forme que l'on souhaite donner à la palette.
