Åsljunga Pallen

The company consists of a sawmill and six assembly units. We have two bigger lines and in these two lines we prefer to make more than 5000-10000 pallets per batch. Furthermore, we produce pallets in two smaller lines with the highest technology and modern processing there is for pallets. In these two we prefer to produce smaller batches of pallets, <5000 pallets. For producing big and bulky pallets we use a robotic cell. In the cell the robot and human works side by side. We also produce pallets by hand nailing. In our hand nailing department, we produce the most customized wood packing available on the market.

The heart of our company is the sawmill. In the sawmill we produce all the different kinds of wood products that we will need to assembly the final product. Our raw material is pallet timber: 2,5-3,1m long with a diameter of 12-55cm. This is a unique range for the region that we have developed in order to create a more sustainable development and utilization of our natural resources.

Wood packaging

The purpose of wooden packaging is to protect the goods during transport and storage. The packaging should be designed according to the handling that will take place. Today there is standard pallets and customized pallets. The standard pallets can be used within a return system, the return system can be joint or customer specific.

The design of the packaging is influenced by:

  • The weight and centre of gravity of the goods vertically and laterally.
  • If the goods are uniform in weight and shape and can be placed evenly over the pallet or box bottom.
  • The goods value and sensitivity to damage, for example, corrosion.
  • The measure of the goods whether it is self-supporting or supportive of the packaging.
  • Way of transportation and distribution.
  • The handling of the product by the customer and intermediary.
  • Quality and durability.

Pallets

Pallets are one of the most common packaging available today. The pallet emerged as a direct result of the first forklift used in the 1920s in the United States. The pallet was developed with connection to the war regarding shipping and handling war material during second world war. In Europe the railway companies lead the process of making a standardisation of the pallet. Sweden successfully created a standard for pallets 1947, SJ-Pall. Thereafter the developed followed in Switzerland and Germany and the European pallet pool was founded in 1961, EUR-Pall.
