  • View Larger Image

Flow racking is a gravity style roller conveyor setup in rack formation for high-density storage.  It is ideal for presenting a large volume supply of product to an operator.

Features

Flow racks are a low tech and low maintenance gravity roller system for smaller cartons and totes up to larger bins and pallets.

The gravity conveyor is placed on a slight incline for automatic feeding to the pick side of the rack.   The conveyors are available with multiple roller tracks or full-width rollers.

Benefits

Below is a list of the many benefits of flow racks:

  • Increases space utilization
  • Supports a first-in-first-out (FIFO) process
  • Large number of part numbers across a single presentation face
  • Keeps product off the floor
  • Reconfigurable with modular constructions
  • Reduces pick walk time and fatigue
  • Increases productivity
  • Reduces time-to-market
  • Improves inventory control
  • Provides labor and cost savings

Applications

Flow racks are commonly used for carton handling and order picking operations in warehouses and distribution centers.  They are also found in automotive plants for part presentation to an assembly line.
