Carton Flow Full Width Roller
There are several styles of Full Width Carton Flow Roller Systems. This storage system will help you decrease order picking time, utilize otherwise unusable space and maximize storage in your warehouse. The system comes in a multitude of different sizes and capacities as well and can be designed to fit a variety of areas.
This system provides a “moving” storage system without moving parts; it utilizes gravity conveyor.
How Full-Width Roller Rack Systems Work
Roller Tracks are placed on pallet rack shelves. Loading the full-width roller works in two different ways.
- First In Last Out (FILO) is by putting the first product on the front (picking face) of the rack, then, the next product is placed against the first product and pushed back, sliding the first product backward on the carton flow roller.
- First In First Out (FIFO) systems are roller rack systems that load the tote or carton from the back, allowing the stored materials to roll forward towards the picking aisle.
When unloading, gravity does the work for you. As you unload the first product, the remaining products slide forward for easier and faster unloading, in the case of a FIFO – automatic product rotation is attained.
Advantages of Roller Rack Storage Systems
Carton Flow Full-Width Roller Storage systems have many advantages as opposed to static shelving storage systems. Using Carton Flow Rack picking is less strenuous than some other systems as the picking process does not require employees to reach and move stored materials forward on a shelf for unloading. Since the product will naturally roll forward as it is picked, your picking time will decrease significantly.
This style maximizes storage capacity even in small areas.
With Carton Flow Racks the product is stored front to back, not left to right on the shelf. It saves time – reduces travel by having more SKU’s in front of you. Your throughput can be increased by up to 150% as compared to selecting from pallets.
Full-width rollers have one product or SKU per lane. They are available in multiple capacities for any application, to get more out of your order picking operations, you can stack product.
They can be used for full or knuckled fronts work great for split case picking.
