Pallet cover calculation

Here we offer some calculation aids for working out the right fit for a pallet cover. In the diagram the letters indicate the sides of the pallet cover to be calculated. You need to add a little to the pallet dimensions in order to get the right fit for a pallet cover.


Variant 1: Gusset bag cover

The dimensions of the gusset bag are noted down as:

(X + Y) × Z

X = A + 50 mm
Y = B + 50 mm
Z = C + 150mm + B/2


Variant 2: Flat bag

The dimensions of the flat bag are noted down as:

X × Y

X = A + B + 50 mm
Y = C + 150 mm + B/2

X always = the open side of a bag or sack


Film calculation

Weight of a film roll

A = Breite der Folie
B = Länge der Folie
C = Dicke der Folie
D = Dichte der Folie

A × B × C × D = weight of roll in kg

Example:

A = 1 m
B = 1.000 m
C = 100 µm or 100 x 10-6 m
D = 922 kg / m³

1 m × 1.000 m × 100 × 10-6 m × 922 kg / m³ = 92,2 kg

or more simply:

1 m × 1.000 m × 0,1 mm × 0,922 kg = 92,2 kg
plus weight of the core
