Forming, molding and stamping dies are an integral part of the manufacturing process in every industry, from making paper clips to vehicle components to machine assembly. Although necessary and commonplace, the bulky dimensions and heavy weight often make them difficult to handle. Dies, tooling, and other manufacturing equipment can be awkward to store because of their inability to be stacked and their large variations in weight and size.
This often results in these indispensable tools being placed on the plant’s manufacturing floor, where they are susceptible to damage, take up valuable space, and potentially endanger employees. Our die storage rack systems offer a simple solution for fabricators, manufacturers, and warehouse managers to store dies safely and efficiently.
Protecting your investment requires critical insight into how your most valuable components will be stored. Consider Shelving + Rack Systems’ tool and die storage racks to augment your factory floor space with the long-term durability and storage capacity you need.
Our heavy-duty die rack solutions are constructed from high-density steel, ensuring superior strength, lateral rigidity, and shelf beam construction. Regardless of the size and shape of your dies, our customizable racks make efficient storage hassle-free.
Load capacity varies depending on the racking purchased. Our customer service specialists can assist you with choosing the proper setup to meet the demands of your manufacturing business.
If you want to optimize your facility’s storage density, our vertical tool and die storage racks offer excellent capacity per shelf level, ideal for organizing dies, parts, tools, and elements of all types, including custom sizes.
The shelf beam adjustment feature allows you to customize your die racks to your precise needs, providing you with the exact amount of vertical storage capacity for your specific manufacturing processes. Each shelf supports your choice of deck plates, such as plywood, solid sheet, or steel grate.
You can customize your tool and die storage racks with a high-density storage layout and removable deck plates made of plywood, maximizing the load capacity per shelf for dies and rows of parts bins. Alternatively, you can increase the shelf widths and heights for heavy-duty storage of large items and bulk loads.
With the modular design of Shelving + Rack Systems’ tool and die racks, you are no longer limited to only one type of storage option. You can use our tool and die racks to quickly and easily locate and access needed dies and other materials. Store your items and parts on fork entry bars, open shelf beams, or solid steel decking.
A mix of different shelf depth and height options guarantees you will have the proper type of rack accommodation for each die type and size utilized by your business.
The stringent nature of warehouse safety regulations is due to the significant risks associated with accidents and damages. One slight mishap is all it takes to grind your manufacturing operations to a halt. Reducing risk and improving safety should be your highest priority when considering new storage racks.
Preventable accidents happen regularly when machinery is continually moving in and out of aisles and around shelving, such as overhead cranes operating near a shelving aisle.
When items are correctly stored in a die or mold storage rack instead of the warehouse floor, the risk of material handling equipment accidentally damaging vital fabrication items decreases significantly.
Die racks keep premium floor space free from dies not currently in use. Space may be used to install additional racking systems to store other various materials or finished products. With the right structural rack design and custom layout, you can make the most of your floor space and maximize your storage capabilities.
The horizontal steel beams on a set of heavy-duty steel die storage racks can be customized with different spacing to accept items of various sizes. A typical configuration is 4-inch increments, although you can also set them at 3-inch increments for narrower items. Alternatively, custom options for beam spacing are also possible for unusually-sized objects.
Whether your mezzanine is on the first or fourth floor, improperly stored dies increase the risk of being knocked over by unsuspecting employees or moving machinery, significantly increasing the risk of serious injury to your workforce.
To adhere to best safety practices, the tool and die racks from Shelving + Rack Systems, Inc. are made using high-durability steel structures and elements to help you keep items safely stored out of harm’s way.
Our die rack shelf beams are crafted from durable roll-formed steel, wide-flange beams, high-strength shelves, and structural bolts capable of handling larger load capacities without bending or damage. Heavy-duty anchor bolt connections keep your storage racks solidly planted into your floor space, further increasing safety and limiting the risk of beam collapse.
