How to process the raw materials of the wood pallet press machine?

The process of processing raw materials for a wood pallet press machine involves several steps to transform the raw materials, typically wood fibers or particles, into compressed wood pallets. Here is a general overview of the process:

  1. Raw Material Preparation: The first step is to prepare the raw materials for the wood pallet press machine. This involves sourcing wood fibers or particles, which are often derived from waste wood, sawdust, or other wood byproducts. The raw materials may undergo a cleaning process to remove impurities such as dust, debris, or foreign objects.
  2. Drying: If the raw materials contain excess moisture, they need to be dried before further processing. This is typically done using a drying system that removes moisture to achieve the desired moisture content. Proper drying helps ensure the quality and durability of the final compressed wood pallets.
  3. Fiber Treatment (Optional): Depending on the specific requirements of the pallet production, the raw materials may undergo additional treatments. These treatments can include adding binders, adhesives, or other additives to improve the bonding properties, moisture resistance, or insect resistance of the final pallets.
  4. Mixing and Blending: In this step, the prepared raw materials are mixed and blended to achieve a uniform composition. This can be done using specialized equipment such as mixers or blending machines. The mixing process ensures that the wood fibers or particles are evenly distributed, enhancing the strength and consistency of the final pallets.
  5. Compression: The mixed and blended raw materials are then fed into the wood pallet press machine. The machine applies heat and pressure to compress the materials, binding them together. The specific compression process may vary depending on the type of wood pallet press machine used, but it typically involves hydraulic or mechanical pressure to form the compressed wood pallets.
  6. Cooling and Setting: Once the raw materials have been compressed into pallets, they are cooled down to set and stabilize the shape. Cooling can be achieved through natural air cooling or using cooling systems to expedite the process. Proper cooling ensures that the compressed wood pallets maintain their structural integrity and dimensional stability.
  7. Finishing and Trimming: After cooling, the compressed wood pallets may undergo finishing processes to remove any excess material, smooth rough edges, or enhance the surface quality. This can involve trimming, sanding, or other surface treatments to achieve the desired finish.
  8. Quality Control and Inspection: Throughout the process, quality control measures are implemented to ensure the final compressed wood pallets meet the required standards. This can involve visual inspections, dimensional checks, and testing for strength, moisture content, or other specific parameters.
  9. Packaging and Storage: Once the compressed wood pallets have passed quality control, they are typically packaged and prepared for shipment or storage. Proper packaging protects the pallets from damage during transportation or storage and ensures they remain in optimal condition until they are ready for use.

How does the hydraulic pallets press machine work?

Before compressing the sawdust, we usually preheat the compressed wood pallet press machine. We can use the steam generated by the boiler as the heat source of the wooden pallet machine or use the heat-conducting oil furnace to conduct heat conduction heating into the mold of the pallet machine.

Then, we evenly pour the sawdust into the mold of the machine and flatten it. After pressing the down switch, the upper mold of the machine will be pressed down, and after about 7 minutes, a wooden pallet will be made.

After the wooden pallet is made, we need to manually remove it from the mold, or set up an automatic discharge device near the discharge port of the machine.
