Creform Heavy-Duty Mobile Flow Rack

Creform heavy-duty mobile flow rack features Placon® roller conveyor and 42 mm pipe and joints construction.

Creform Corporation, a manufacturer of products for material handling structures has designed and produced a mobile heavy-duty flow rack for an automotive assembly plant. The flow rack is used by the body shop and is used to flow in production parts on their assembly line.

The rack is built using Creform 42 mm pipe and joints for extra capacity and rigidity, as well as providing for flexibility and reusability by this long-time customer. Also, the flow rack features wide Creform Placon® roller conveyor for excellent flow characteristics and strength, while the low-friction skate wheel conveyors allow for shallow flow lane angles that are suitable for both plastic returnable totes as well as cardboard boxes. The gravity flow rack assists in first-in, first out inventory management.

The rack features two repositionable supply levels with one flow lane per level, while empty containers are returned up top. The rack is configured with a stair step design to improve access to parts in boxes presented at the two supply levels. It can be customized with only simple tools.

The pictured rack is 28 in. wide, 60 in. deep and 65 in. tall and has a load capacity rating of 800 lbs. It features four 6 in. casters—two fixed and two that swivel with brakes for easy movement and positioning.

Besides lineside use, the Creform flow rack can be part of a supermarket storage area. It is ideal for picking individual SKUs that make up a manufacturing kit, typically appropriate for assembly applications.  The flow rack is also useful for general warehousing of pull-to-ship parts and point of use presentation rack within an assembly work cell.
