FlexQube’s Most Popular Flow Racks
Flow racks, gravity racks or first-in-first-out racks help bins, totes and boxes to flow from the back of the rack to the front. Gravity comes into play here as it naturally draws down the heavier bins, totes and boxes to the front for the operator to reach out to.
Flow racks are extremely easy to apply to your facility and make the task at hand for the operator much easier to complete. These racks are usually used in conjunction with 2 operators, one on either side of the rack. One of the operators or handlers will be re-stocking the totes, bins and boxes on one side of the rack making sure that the supply never runs low. On the other side of the rack this operator/handler will be completing the assembly along the assembly line. Removing the materials from the bins, totes and boxes and then placing the empty boxes in a return rack which easily slides to the operator in charge of re-supply.
These types of systems are perfectly suited within a lean manufacturing set-up and can greatly improve the efficiency along the assembly line. This type of rack saves much time in picking and sourcing of the products and is quite useful within a distribution supermarket.
Why Use a FlexQube Flow Rack?
The FlexQube Flow Rack solution is one of the most robust and heavy-duty solutions on the market. Many other flow rack solutions are created using a tube and joint system which isn’t as robust and sturdy as the FlexQube system. Even though a FlexQube Flow Rack is much more robust, this doesn’t take away from its flexibility. The FlexQube concept allows you to easily customize and re-design your carts/ racks to fit your work flows, materials and ergonomic standards.
Our Flow Racks can also have caster added to their base, which means you can easily re-locate your flow racks to match your ever-changing assembly lines and materials. By adding casters to your flow racks allows you to create a flexible factory set-up within your facility which allows re-arrangement to take place when needed.
On top of this FlexQube flow racks don’t only have to be a flow rack. Our solutions can have flat shelves, pull-out drawers, and return shelves added to any flow rack allowing you to create the optimal solution for your needs.
