CARRARO DRIVE TECH: EARTHQUAKE RESISTANCE IS NOT AN OPTIONAL, BUT A CRITICAL REQUIREMENT FOR PALLET RACKING
A highly versatile, earthquake resistant pallet racking system, suited to contain a wide range of products of different weights and sizes, has been developed by the Ferretto Group for the Carraro Group’s production centre in Padua.
The pallet racking systems designed and installed according to earthquake regulations are more reliable, last longer and guarantee greater resistance and resilience in case of seismic events.
This is the idea that guided Carraro Drive Tech, a Carraro Group company that designs, produces and markets axles, transmissions, and steel gears for various applications, from earth moving machines to agricultural tractors, from light commercial vehicles to forklift trucks, as well as for industrial applications.
The new structure designed to support the production at the Group's headquarters in Padua had to be characterized by high storage flexibility, since it was intended to house items for 7 different types of unit loads.
The Ferretto Group's Design Division proposed a 13-level earthquake resistant pallet racking system, perfect for space optimization.
In fact, thanks to the addition of a 3rd and a 4th stringer parallel to the main beams, the structure manages 10.423 ULs of various weights and sizes, positioned on pallets and on metal containers.
The cantilever bays located on the heads of the pallet racking allow the company to optimize the performance of the very narrow aisle trucks both in the picking and in the storage phase.
