The Tolerances of different dimensions of the production board is as listed below:
Length : ± 2.0 mm. Width : ± 2.0 mm. Thickness : ± 1.0 mm. Diagonal : ≤ 8 mm.
Flatness is measured with respect to the tolerances of various dimensions as given:
Length and Diagonal of Board ≤ 2 mm. Width of Board ≤ 1.5 mm. As measured by a ruler (straightener tool): L = 1000 mm.
The sides or edges of the board is cut at 5x5mm size. An automatic grinding (sanding) machine is used to calibrate the board for thickness. After the manufacturing process, the pallets do not go through any further treatment and are ready for use as a pallet for concrete product manufacturing.
Size of Pallets
Usually pallets of any given size can be manufactured. The customer requirements for a pallet size is always met successfully. However, the main sizes that pallets are manufactured in are for concrete blocks, pavers and Kerbstone.
Pallets are also manufactured in sizes varying from a small size of 550 X 400 mm to a much larger size of 1500 X 1500 mm.
The number of pallets packaged into a single bundle is solely dependent upon the thickness of the production boards. Usually, boards are bundled into packages of 20 pallets per bundle. Steel straps are used as wrappings for these bundles.
If we take for example a bundle comprising of 18/22 boards, 2 across length side and 2 across width side steel straps are wrapped and protected to avoid damages during transport of these bundles of production boards.
