Hardy-Built Fasteners Suited for Pallet Collars
Hardy-Built Systems fastening hardware can be used for wood crates and containers as well as pallet collars.
With Hardy-Built fasteners, pallet rings can be built for any type and size pallet. Offset corner cleats locate the ring on the pallet and interlock rings above. Progressive ring assembly and disassembly enables easy loading and unloading. Disassembled rings can be stored flat for space savings.
The Hardy-Built System is an engineered, patented fastener to lock together wood panels for knock-down, reusable containers. The system fits virtually any thickness of wood material.
Easily assembled and disassembled, the system is mounted and secured by one to two people in an easy, four-step process.
The Hardy-Built® System provides a variety of crating, storage and shipping solutions, from common problems to unique applications. The company also provides custom design and engineering assistance.

Gap Offers New Nailing Machine
Gap Inc. has developed a new automated nailing machine, the Gap G2. Using pneumatic nailing tools and collated fasteners, it can nail pallets made with new lumber or recycled pallet parts.
The Gap G2 nailing machine nails the top and bottom deck boards simultaneously, eliminating the need to turn over the pallet; cycle time is 10 seconds. The pneumatic nailing tools that fasten the bottom deck boards have indicator lights to ensure they are nailing.
The Gap G2 nailing machine can assemble pallets with deck boards ranging from 28 to 60 inches and stringers from 24 to 65 inches. The machine can nail wing pallets out to 4 inches, top and bottom, and has the capability to assemble pallets with four stringers.
The Gap G2 is simple to operate and features a fast change-over. It has two emergency stops, one on each side of the gantry. The stacker automatically counts the pallets and ejects the stacks.
Alabama-based Gap began manufacturing pallet nailing machines in 1993 and sold a few hundred of the GAP 960 model in 12 years.
