Flow Rack Conveyors
28th July 2020Flow rack conveyors have a narrow bed of skate wheels or rollers that allow cartons, totes, and other flat-bottomed items to glide along the rack. These flow racks are installed into storage racks or pallet racks to reduce the effort it takes to move items onto or off of the racks, which boosts efficiency in inventory and order-picking tasks.
They are typically used in the food and beverage industry and other storage or warehousing operations requiring high-density, high-volume storage and movement of the same or similar products. Flow racks are commonly used to support storage and inventory initiatives such as first-in, first-out (FIFO) and can serve as floor-mounted staging areas for manufacturing or logistical processes.
