Carton Flow Rack
Carton flow rack is designed for first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory management. Carton flow rack allows for continuous inventory rotation.
How It Works
In carton flow rack, the rack supports inclined rollers or wheels that allow cartons to glide from the back (loading) aisle to the front (picking) aisle. When the front carton is unloaded, the next automatically glides into picking position.
There are a number of carton flow rack accessories to help with safe, efficient distribution such as lane guides and brakes. Tilt trays can be added to the discharge end of the system for easy access into the top of a case for piece-picking.
There are a number of roller and wheel options to choose from including full bed polycarbonate wheels for varying carton widths and full width steel rollers and polycarbonate wheels for consistent carton widths. There are options to accommodate various applications including light, medium, and heavy duty. A REB material handling specialist can assess your operation and let you know which options are best for you.
