New Creform Anti-Static Mobile Flow Rack is Ideal for the Kitting of Light Weight Parts
Greer, SC—Creform Corporation, a manufacturer of unique products for material handling structures has designed and built a mobile gravity-fed, anti-static flow rack for an automotive assembly plant. The flow rack is used by the manufacturer for kitting of light weight auto parts.
The flow rack features three levels for product presentation and each level features five lanes. When an associate moves the front box of a lane out, others in the lane automatically flow down to fill the position. This guarantees first in-first out (FIFO) inventory management. The vertical presentation face allows the levels to be easily moved up/down with a simple 5 mm hex wrench. Each of the five lanes features a separator so that the boxes are contained within the lane. Further, each lane features three Creform’s electrostatic- discharge (ESD) high-quality skatewheel conveyor rollers. These provide for a smooth flow of product.
The flow rack’s dimensions are 140" W x 43" D x 54" T and is designed to hold up to 750 lb. It is built with ESD plastic-coated “black” pipe and nickel-plated metal joints. It features 12 heavy duty stem casters that aid in moving the structure for housekeeping or relocating. Four of the casters feature brake capability.
As with all Creform flow racks, higher capacity, sizes and configurations are possible. A wide variety of pipe colors are available for non ESD applications, and accessories can include information sheet holders, label holders, tool storage, hooks to hang tools and other supplies. Creform flow racks are suitable for warehouse or manufacturing plant use.
They are available as a kit or an assembled structure or in the component form for a complete DIY solution.
The Creform System is used to create an array of material handling and efficiency enhancing devices and is a proven component in continuous improvement and lean manufacturing programs. The company partners with customers in developing and implementing these programs.
