On average, 4-5 cubic meters of raw materials can be processed every day. The machine can be customized to produce blocks that meet specific size and shape requirements through mold customization.

Raw materials of pallet block machine

The feedstock for this machine is about three to five millimeters in size and is usually sawdust that has been through a wood crusher or hammer mill crusher. The shavings have been through a wood shaver machine. Alternatively, the raw materials may include some rice hulls and woodchips.

Wood block forming machine features

As a kind of automated equipment, this machine has many features and advantages that make it widely used in various fields. The following are some common features of the matting machine:

  • Diversified production: The pallet block machine can adapt to different kinds, shapes, and sizes of raw materials, to produce diversified matting products to meet the needs of different customers.
  • Reduced Labor Intensity: The automated production process reduces the operator’s labor intensity and improves the comfort of the working environment.
  • Precise Control: The machines are usually equipped with advanced control systems that can precisely control the heating, molding, cutting, and cooling processes of raw materials to ensure the quality and consistency of the final products.
  • Flexibility: The molds and settings of the machine can be adjusted and replaced according to the needs of different products, giving it a certain degree of production flexibility.

How does pallet block press machine work?

The pallet block machine processes raw materials into mat blocks of desired shape and size through the steps of raw material supply, heating, molding, cutting, cooling, and collecting. Different models of briquetting machines may utilize different technologies and mechanisms in these steps to meet the production needs of different types of briquettes.

Raw material supply

First, the blocker will supply the required raw materials (e.g. foam granules, polyethylene sheets, foam rolls, etc.) to the machine’s feed system. These raw materials are usually stored in the hopper or feed unit in the form of granules or flakes.

Heating and melting

Once the raw materials enter the pallet block machine, they are fed into the heating zone. In the heating zone, the raw materials are heated to melt or soften them, making them plastic. Different types of briquetting machines may use different heating methods, such as hot air, hot plates, etc.


After heating and melting, the raw material is fed into a mold or molding unit. The shape and size of the mold depend on the desired final mat form. The raw material is cooled and cured in the mold, gradually forming the desired mat shape.

Cooling and Curing

After cutting and separating, the mat may be further cooled and cured to ensure its stability and structural integrity. The cooling process can be achieved by natural heat dissipation or by an assisted cooling system.

Cutting and Separation

Once the pallets are cured, they are fed into the cutting area. Here, the pallets may be cut by cutting knives, wires, or other cutting mechanisms to split them into the desired size and shape. After cutting, the mat blocks are separated and prepared for the next step in the process.

Wood pallet block production line

Wood crusher → selection of raw materials → dryer(Controlling the moisture content of raw materials to less than 12%.) → glue mixer → feed mixing drum → heater → molding cylinder → cutting machine.

feeding materials of pallet block machine

Raw materials: According to the requirements of the machine to select suitable materials, this process should pay attention to the size of the raw materials and humidity. Therefore, the selected raw materials need to enter the dryer first to control the moisture to less than twelve percent.

Glue mixer: To increase the density of the finished product, the raw material needs to be mixed with glue, which is usually urea-formaldehyde resin glue. The purpose of this is to make the finished product stronger and have more load-bearing capacity.

feed mixing drum

Feed mixing drum: When feeding, to prevent the solidification of the raw materials added with glue, it is necessary to add a stirring device in the feeding cylinder, which also makes the materials more uniform.

Heating device: Raw materials are heat and pressure treated to melt or expand and heat molded.

molding cylinder

Molding cylinder: The material is shaped through a mold. The shape and size of the pads are determined by the different models of molding cylinders. Common sizes are 75*75, 80*80, 90*90, 90*120, 100*100, 100*115, 100*140, 140*140.

Pallet block cutting machine: The newly made blocks are cooled to cure and stabilize them. The blocks are cut into the desired individual blocks or combinations of blocks using a cutting or separating device.

Applications of sawdust block making machine

Pallet block machines are widely used in many different fields, mainly for producing various types of blocks to meet the needs of different industries. Below are some of the common applications of the machines:

  • Packing industry: The pallet block machine can produce all kinds of padding for packaging, such as foam padding, bubble wrap padding, etc., which is used to protect products from damage during transportation and storage.
  • Industrial protection: The padding machine can be manufactured for the protection of industrial equipment, parts, and products to reduce vibration, cushion impact, and protect surfaces.
  • Transportation industry: The padding machine can produce padding blocks for cargo transportation and loading, to prevent the cargo from moving or being damaged during transportation.
  • Furniture manufacturing: Bumpers can produce padded cushions for use in the furniture manufacturing process, such as seat cushions, back cushions, and so on.

Overall, pallet block machines play an important role in many different fields, providing key solutions for product protection, packaging, transportation, and performance. Due to the wide range of demands for matting, the application areas for matting machines are also very diverse.
