Title (EN) FREIGHT PALLET WITH DETACHABLE BASED SLED
(FR) PALETTE DE CHARGEMENT POURVUE D'UN PATIN DE BASE AMOVIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A pallet can be detachably carried on a sled for shipping heavier objects on the pallet as carried by the sled, or lighter object on the pallet alone, the sled spreading the weight over a greater area than the pallet alone. The dimensions of both the pallet and sled are related to contribute different integer fractions of a given dimension such as the length of a standard intermodal container. This arrangement is apt for shipping smaller steel coils on pallets and larger steel coils on pallets carried by sleds. Thus, for example, quarter-container-length pallets, normally appropriate for a pallet to carry lighter coils, can carry heavier loads on a sled occupying a larger proportion of the container length, such as a half-container-length sled. An attachment mechanism affixes the sled to the pallet and the assembly is configured for manipulation with a fork lift.
(FR) L'invention concerne une palette pouvant être placée amovible sur un patin afin de déplacer des objets relativement lourds, la palette seule permettant de déplacer des objets plus légers. Le patin répartit le poids sur une surface plus grande que si la palette est utilisée seule. Les dimensions de la palette et celles du patin présentent un rapport leur permettant de former différentes fractions de nombre entier d'une dimension donnée, telle que la longueur d'un conteneur intermodal standard. Ce dispositif permet d'expédier sur palettes de l'acier en bobines relativement petites, et sur des palettes sur patin de l'acier en bobines relativement grandes. Par exemple, des palettes de la longueur d'un quart de conteneur, qui sont utilisées normalement pour porter des bobines relativement légères, permettent de transporter des charges plus lourdes sur un patin occupant une proportion supérieure de la longueur du conteneur, tel qu'un patin de la moitié de la longueur d'un conteneur. Un mécanisme de fixation permet de fixer le patin à la palette, l'ensemble étant destiné à être manipulé au moyen d'un élévateur à fourche.
