Jeco Plastic Products HPC Pallet Design

SESSION: HPC Impact Showcase Wednesday

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcases

TIME: 1:00PM - 1:40PM

SESSION CHAIR: David Halstead

ROOM:Booth 3947

ABSTRACT:
Jeco Plastic Products designs and manufactures durable pallets and containers for the worldwide printing and automotive industries, as well as other industries handling heavy product or delicate items that must be protected from damage. A recent collaboration with Purdue University and the National Digital Engineering and Manufacturing Consortium provided us with access to powerful computers and software, which were used to perform stress calculations and demonstrate to customers that plastic pallets can perform as effectively as metal pallets in many situations. With HPC and finite element analysis, Jeco was able to significantly strengthen an existing pallet design by making structural changes as a result of detailed 3D models. Jeco plastic pallets are stronger and last significantly longer than wooden pallets. They are much lighter in weight than metal pallets and can be designed to hold much larger loads than would seem possible. The calculations we now can do enable us to develop plastic structures for a wide variety of applications.
