Product Description

Customized Carton Gravity Flow Storage Rack



A carton flow rack, also known as a carton flow system or gravity flow rack, is a type of storage solution used in warehouses and distribution centers to efficiently store and retrieve cartons or boxes of inventory. It is designed to maximize space utilization and improve picking efficiency.


In a carton flow rack, inclined roller tracks or conveyor lanes are installed within a racking system. These tracks allow cartons to flow smoothly and sequentially from the loading end to the picking end of the rack, utilizing gravity. The cartons are loaded into the rear of the rack, and as one carton is removed from the front, the next carton in line moves forward automatically to take its place.


The design of the carton flow rack ensures that the oldest stock is automatically rotated and accessed first, following the principle of "first-in, first out" (FIFO). This is particularly useful for industries dealing with perishable or time-sensitive goods.


Carton flow racks offer several advantages, including efficient space utilization, reduced picking time, increased order accuracy, and improved inventory rotation. They are commonly used in order-picking operations, where a high volume of cartons or cases needs to be accessed quickly and easily.

The Features and Advantages of the Carton Flow Rack Include:



1. Enhanced Picking Efficiency: The flow design of the rack enables a smooth and sequential flow of cartons from the loading end to the picking end. This eliminates the need for manual carton retrieval and reduces picking time, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency.



2. Improved Space Utilization: Carton flow racks maximize vertical and horizontal space utilization by using inclined roller tracks or conveyor lanes. This allows for efficient storage of a large number of cartons or boxes in a compact area.


3. FIFO Inventory Rotation: Carton flow racks follow the "first-in, first-out" (FIFO) principle, ensuring that the oldest inventory is accessed and picked first. This is crucial for industries dealing with perishable or time-sensitive goods, as it helps prevent stock spoilage and reduces the risk of product obsolescence.


4. Ergonomic Design: Carton flow racks are designed with ergonomics in mind. The inclined tracks or conveyor lanes allow for easy access to the cartons at the picking ends, reducing the need for bending, reaching, or heavy lifting by warehouse personnel. This promotes a safer and more comfortable working environment.


5. Versatility and Customization: Carton flow racks can be customized to suit specific storage requirements and carton sizes. The configuration of the roller tracks, lane dividers, and pitch can be adjusted to accommodate different carton dimensions, weights, and flow rates.


6. Durability and Reliability: Carton flow racks are typically constructed using robust materials, such as steel or aluminum, ensuring durability and long-term reliability. They can withstand heavy loads and repetitive use without compromising structural integrity.

To Customize a carton flow rack, the following information is typically required:



1. Carton Dimensions: The dimensions of the cartons or boxes to be stored are essential for designing the roller tracks or conveyor lanes. This includes the length, width, and height of the cartons. Additionally, the maximum weight of the cartons should be known to determine the load-bearing capacity of the rack.


2. Flow Rate and Capacity: Understanding the required flow rate, which refers to the number of cartons passing through the rack per unit of time, is crucial. This information helps determine the width and number of roller tracks or conveyor lanes needed to handle the desired volume. It is also important to consider the overall capacity of the rack, which is determined by the number of cartons it can accommodate.


3. Warehouse Layout and Space Constraints: Knowledge of the available warehouse space and layout is necessary to design a carton flow rack that fits seamlessly into the existing storage area. This includes considering the ceiling height, column spacing, and any obstacles or obstructions that may affect the installation or operation of the rack.


4. Picking Method: Understanding the specific picking method to be employed is important. This could include manual picking, automated picking systems, or a combination of both. The picking method will influence the design and configuration of the carton flow rack.


5. FIFO or LIFO Requirements: Determining whether a "first-in, first-out" (FIFO) or "last-in, first-out" (LIFO) inventory rotation is needed is crucial for designing the carton flow rack. FIFO is commonly used for industries with perishable or time-sensitive goods, while LIFO may be suitable for non-perishable or non-time-sensitive products.


6. Additional Requirements: Any additional requirements or considerations, such as lane dividers, braking mechanisms, labeling or identification systems, or integration with existing warehouse management systems, should also be communicated during the customization process.
