NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

RollerForks lower handling costs by eliminating or reducing pallet use in favor of slipsheets, cartons, intermediate bulk containers and corrugated bundles. The forks feature two layers of rollers encased in cartridges. When the lift truck moves, the lower row of rollers (touching the floor) spins, causing top row of rollers to rotate in the opposite direction to slide under the pallet-less load without disturbing the products. Raising the forks causes the rollers to drop below the fork surface to securely rest the products on the blades for transport.
