Stair-Stepped Flow Rack

Nov. 15, 2022
The Stair-Stepped Flow Rack uses Creform’s wide Placon conveyor for product flow.

To speed up parts handling operation and efficiency, the Stair-Stepped Flow Rack with Placon conveyor and a robotic arm was designed for an automated storage and retrieval systems manufacturer. It features six levels; each level has six lanes that use Creform’s wide Placon conveyor for product flow. Lane dividers are located on each side of the lane to allow the robot to easily identify each part location.

Each of the rack’s levels can be repositioned and can be raised or lowered without changing the length of the conveyor. Position changes require only a simple hex wrench.

Placon rollers work especially well with totes that have soft bottoms or open cell designs. The 3 in. (7.6 cm) wide Placon rollers provide the extra support necessary to handle flow rack challenges and are supported by a wide selection of load and stop mounts. They are suitable for low friction for shallow flow angles.
