Integrated Composite Pallet Manufacturing Complex

Harwood Timbers for Making Composite Pallets

Plantation Hardwood Timber

Select hardwood is chosen from plantation timbers around the world, ensuring perpetual recurrence of vegetation. Plantation timber is scientifically grown in conducive geographical regions ensuring that the forests are not destroyed for want of wood.

Logs are Processed to Get Desired Pallets

Log Processing

Plantation trees are manually selected to ensure physical parameters of logs. Once selected, the logs go through the process of de-barking. Logs are then fed into veneering machines where hydraulically operated sharp blades produce extremely thin layers of timber.

Hardwood Veneer

Hardwood Veneer forms the core of our Composite pallets, and thus must be absolutely of highest quality. Out of the veneers produced in the factory, ones with highest parameters are selected for Composite pallets. They are cross laid to increase the core strength.

Rhino Composite Pallets veneers Stored in humidifying chambers

Humidity Optimization

Humidity of veneer plays a very important part in the final quality of the Rhino Composite Pallets. Veneers are stored in controlled humidifying chambers to achieve the desired level of humidity before proceeding to next level of manufacturing.Optimum moisture is maintained during the whole process.

Synthetic Resin used on Wooden Pallets

Waterproof Synthetic Resin

In-situ manufacturing of Industrial Strength Waterproof Synthetic Resin ensures consistent quality and availability of all grades of required resins for different applications. The Wooden Pallets For Concrete Blocks use the highest grade of Waterproof Synthetic Resin to ensure long trouble free life.

Veneer sheets covered by Resin for fibre saturation

Resin Saturated Fibres

Individual veneer sheets are rolled through resin ensuring complete fibre saturation. Consistent quality control ensures 100% coverage by resin in each layer of hardwood fibres. This ensures absolute adhesion during compression using superheated steam eventually producing high quality pallets.

Pallet veneers are compressed using superheated steam

Hydraulic Compression

Hydraulic Plate presses are the heart of the manufacturing process. Once the veneers are layered to optimum thickness, they are subject to 3,300 Tonnes of prolonged compression using superheated steam ensuring our composite pallets achieve the desired density and waterproof adhesiveness.

Composite Pallet's Final Mother Board Cuts

Pallet Core Formation

The Mother Board thus formed, is cut to size as per client requirements. Once cut to size, the boards go through calibration process on highly sensitive machines to achieve the required thickness and flatness as per client requirements. Rhino Composite Pallets offer high tolerances in all board sizes.

Composite Pallet Surfaces with abrasion resistance

Choice of Board Surfaces

Depending upon client requirements, the core is laminated under high temperature and pressure once again with multiple layers of Synthetic Film, Interwoven Fabric or Glass Fibres using waterproof resin. These layers ensure varying degrees of abrasion resistance increasing product life.

Cut and Edges are Chamfered for Perfect Final Pallets

Edge and Corner Preparation

Post lamination, the corners of Pallets for block machine are cut and edges get chamfered to give a final finish. The edges are impregnated with Polyurethane based coatings to secure the edges. High density, uniform dimensions, jointless board and choice of surfaces make them unique,

Specifications

Production boards for concrete blocks are made of high quality densified hardwood fibres impregnated with Industrial Grade Synthetic Waterproof resin. All layers, in crossed directions, are treated with waterproof resin and pressed under extreme high pressure and temperature. The boards are one solid piece, without any joints/gaps. Once completed, they are laminated with Glass Fibres, Industrial Fabric or Synthetic Film as per Clients requirements.
