When you choose to recover, instead of replacing your clamp pads, you’ve made a smart decision that will positively impact your company’s bottom line. Many clamp pad manufacturers won’t tell you that recovered clamp pads can be a third of the cost of a new set.
Not every impact, abrasion and corrosion issue has a one-size-fits-all solution. At Sioux Rubber & Urethane, we understand this better than anyone. That’s why we use our 40-plus years of experience to care for custom rubber products to solve every possible issue that comes our customers’ way.
Have an unusual piece of machinery or product that could benefit from some vibration control or corrosion resistance? We can help by covering it in rubber or urethane. In fact, one of the cornerstones of our business is our custom rubber and urethane coverings and coatings that we create specifically for your unique needs.
Some things are just meant to go together – peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin and rubber and urethane. Two things that never go together? Bare metal forklift clamp pads and inventory, ouch. When your clamp pads lose their rubber cushion, they can’t do their job effectively and need to be replaced.
There are a variety of forklift clamp attachments designed to help workers move materials that a regular set of forks would have trouble with including paper rolls, lightweight boxes and cartons. These clamps are made from a substrate, usually metal, and have an attached pad made of rubber to help cushion and grip the material. While forklift clamps are a common piece of equipment in any warehouse, here are five things you probably didn’t know about clamp pads.
Today’s lightweight, advanced and custom packaging has made clamp pads an absolutely necessary accessory for every forklift. Clamp pads reduce the damage forklifts can cause on delicate boxes, crates and paper rolls. They give the grip needed to move inventory around a warehouse safely. You need them, you want them, but there’s one thing other manufacturers aren’t telling you – you don’t have to buy them new each time they wear out.
