In logistics, especially in the food and beverage industry, trends show an increased interest in palletless handling, looking for space and cost savings. 

The adoption of the slip-sheet is a valuable option to the traditional wooden pallet. Made of cardboard, the slip-sheet is easy to dispose and recycle and is considered to be an eco-friendly and sustainable material handling option. Thanks to the extremely reduced thickness (100 slip-sheets are about 1 pallet) it is possible to stove more goods in containers or wagons and in the warehouse.

This transport method is widely adopted in the USA and is now growing in Europe, mainly at export companies shipping their goods overseas.

Push Pulls allow storage of loads in vehicles with slip-sheets, saving on space and transportation costs.

The solution to slip-sheet handling

Products of every kind are being handled on slip-sheets instead of wooden pallets.

Slip-sheets are being used in various industries such as food, beverage, glassware, building materials, agricultural, paper, chemical, hardware and the automotive parts industry.

Bolzoni Auramo has the solution to all your slip-sheet handling needs. A complete range of Push Pulls engineered and designed for today’s most demanding applications. The Dedicated Push Pull for the customer using exclusively slip sheeted loads and the Easy Rider Fork-Mounted Push Pull for operations requiring slip-sheets on an intermittent or part time basis.

Bolzoni Auramo Fork-Mounted Push Pull model Easy Rider

Ideal model for those companies where the handling of goods on slip-sheets is not sufficient to justify the use of a dedicated fork lift truck, the Fork-Mounted Push Pull model Easy Rider is engineered for operations requiring slip-sheets on an intermittent or part time basis. It offers the possibility to convert a conventional fork lift truck with forks into a specially equipped machine to handle loads on slip-sheets.

Bolzoni Auramo - Push Pull - Easy Rider

This attachment is particularly suitable for logistics companies or 3PL where every day is required to handle both palletized goods and loads with slip-sheet. 

For example, an Italian customer, producer of a worldwide sold and appreciated Italian amaretto, in order to optimize shipping space and therefore costs, has been handling his valuable bottles using the Bolzoni Auramo Easy Rider push pull for many years.

Thanks to this fork mounted attachment, with quick disconnect hooks and couplings, the customer is able to use the same forklift truck, switching handling from palletized goods to loads on slip sheet, in a short time.

Main features:

  • The driver enters the forks under the platens, tilts the mast forward, lifts the carriage up, engages the upper hooks, locks the lower mounting hooks in place and connects the quick-change hydraulic couplings.
  • Converting time: one minute.
Fork-Mounted Push Pull model Easy Rider is the flexible solution for palletized and non-palletized loads.

Bolzoni Auramo Dedicated Push Pull

The Dedicated Push Pull is a carriage mounted model, dedicated to support companies using palletless handling constantly for loading or unloading containers, to ship and store a wide variety of boxed, bagged, unboxed, cylindrical or rolled goods using slip-sheets. The results are lower pallet costs, reduced pallet handling labor and pallet returns, and higher payloads.

The main features are:

  • Pushing plate and gripper jaw with larger window to improve visibility.
  • Tilting push plate and quick-change hooks included.
  • Advantageous weight and lost load to maximize lift truck residual capacity.
Gripper jaw is actuated by two cylinders, assuring a perfect force distribution on the clamping bar to help prevent any damage to the slip-sheet.
