Pallet live storage

 
 

Pallet Live Storage is an effective method of saving space when storing pallets because only two aisles are needed – one on the loading side and one on the unloading side. The loading operation is strictly separated from the unloading operation. The pallets roll from the loading side of the rack to the unloading side down inclined gravity rollers. The speed is regulated by brake rollers so that the pallets pass slowly and at an even speed through the lanes. In this way pallets with less stable loads can also be stored.

At the end of the lane the first pallet can be unloaded without any pressure from behind. This is important especially if the lanes are long, because otherwise the front pallet would have to be retrieved against the pressure of the pallets behind. When the front pallet has been removed the next pallet moves forward immediately so that the forklift truck driver does not lose time waiting.

Pallet Live Storage is a perfect example of the FiFo principle. 

Carton Live Storage System

   

The Carton Live Storage system is an effective method of saving space when storing different types of receptacles. Plastic boxes or cartons can be stored as well as other containers, e.g. buckets or casks. Only two aisles are needed – one on the loading side and one at the picking face. The loading operation is strictly separated from the picking operation. The containers move from the loading side of the rack to the picking face by rolling down inclined gravity rollers. Once the front load has been retrieved the next one moves forward immediately so that the order-picking clerk does not lose time waiting.

Depending on the method of retrieval – complete containers or item-picking from a container – the carton live levels or carton live frames, can be ergonomically adapted to make order-picking fast and efficient.

The Carton Live Storage System is a perfect example of the FiFo principle.

Push back Racking

   

Push-back Racking is an effective method of saving space when storing pallets. Only one aisle is needed because the loading side is the same as the retrieval side. The FLT pushes the pallets up the channel. When a pallet is retrieved, the next one moves forward either along inclined gravity rollers or on a carrier system with rails. The latter is known as Carrier Push Back.

The FiFo method cannot be practised here, however removing batches on a FiFo system is possible. The Carrier Push Back system is particularly suitable for pallets that cannot be wholly or partially stored on roller tracks, such as many chemical pallets or Europallets and industry pallets that need to be stored cross wise.
