Creform Intros Height/Angle Adjustable Flow Rack
Height-adjustable rack.
Green, SC — Creform® Corporation has introduced a new concept for a multi-tasking, storage, and part transfer unit to support warehouse order picking operations, or point-of-use locations for assembly and machining stations and work cells. The structure, using the company's system of pipe sections and joints, consists of a five-level flow rack with each level being two lanes wide, and providing load capacity of 350 pounds totaling a combined structure capacity of 1750 pounds.

A second design feature of the rack system is its wide-ranging adaptation to varying situations, afforded by the infinite adjustability of the shelf level supports. Since each end of the shelf supports can be adjusted independently, rack levels can be set for both height settings and to modify the incline angle for each layer to obtain proper material/container flow.

Equipped with casters, the rack can be loaded in staging zones, then transferred to work areas. Or, constructed with stabilizing footpads, the structures can be used as stationary flow racks supporting assembly points. Each level's slope angle can be varied; the flow rack can accommodate diverse weights and mass of items to assure proper downward travel to the front or off-load point. In addition, one or more of the levels can be reversed to provide an empty container return.

In addition, the flow rack can be constructed using either form of conveyor track offered through the company's skatewheel style for rigid, uniform shape containers, or full-width roller tracks when using soft bottomed containers (boxboard, corrugated) or for non-containerized components.
