How to ship a milling machine on pallets

When you need to ship an industrial milling machine abroad for maintenance or send it to a new factory, the best way to prepare it on pallets is as follows:

  1. Dismantle: If possible, consider breaking the machine down and packing each part separately, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Remove any detachable parts: such as handles and cranks and pack these separately.
  3. Place onto a pallet: by securing the milling machine with cables and bolts.
  4. Protect with shrink wrap: covering the entire pallet and machine and secure the plastic wrap to the bottom of the pallet.
  5. Using a crate: You might wish to use an appropriately sized crate for added protection.
