A carton flow system can be an integral part of your warehouse or distribution center, improving efficiency and helping to maintain a steady, available flow of inventory. However, this smooth flow can only occur if all parts of the system are operating properly. If you’re considering replacing your carton flow system due to inefficiency or wear and tear, carton flow roller replacement is a viable option that will minimize operation downtime and save you money.
Reasons for Replacement
If your carton flow system is poorly made or an older system, bent tracks, damaged lanes, and broken wheels might be a common occurrence. This can lead to damaged products, ineffective lane flow, and lost productivity time. Total system replacement can quickly become a costly ordeal. Then the big question arises: can I replace the broken carton flow wheels or track, or do I need a total system placement?
Is Replacement Right for You?
If one level or one lane of tracks and wheels is damaged, replacing only the broken parts is a viable solution. With a drop-in replacement system, you can easily retrofit any existing carton flow shelf with new, full-bed polypropylene wheels.
Carton flow roller replacement is a cost and time effective solution. The replacement wheels can be installed into existing tracks without disrupting the other carton flow rollers. This can be done in a fraction of the time needed to replace an entire level, quickly returning the warehouse floor to its original efficiency.
Once installed, these full-bed polypropylene carton flow wheels are heavy-duty, abuse-resistant, and provide optimized, flexible flow of cartons or cases. Adjustable, snap-on entry guides can be provided for further efficiency.
