MCKENZIE PALLET FLOW

A flow storage system has two parts:

Static rack structure and dynamic flow rails. The flow rails are set at an incline in the rack structure, allowing loads placed on one end of the rack to move down to the unloading end. Rollers let the loads move smoothly while self-energized speed controllers act as gentle brakes. As a load is removed, the loads behind it move forward automatically. The flow system depth, height, and width are limited only by the size of your facility and the capabilities of your material handling equipment.

Increased efficiency FIFO inventory

  • Ideal for perishable and time-sensitive products where lost product becomes lost profit

Reduced handling costs

  • Powered by gravity alone - once loaded, product rotation is automatic

Reduced handling equipment costs

  • Fewer aisles and forklifts result in lower labor and fuel costs

Better use of warehouse space

  • Up to 100% more product storage than selective rack systems

Maximize space savings

  • Store more products in less space, reducing total physical plant and overhead costs

Increased flexibility

  • Useful in many applications including raw materials receiving and storage, work-in-process, buffer storage, finished goods, order picking,

Pallet Separators

Pallet Separators facilitate the removal of pallets by hand or lift truck by holding back the second and all subsequent pallets in a lane until the first pallet is completely removed. Operation of the pallet separator can either be manual or automatic,depending on the application. As the first pallet moves into the final position a toggle lever mechanism is actuated which raises a stop. This stop allows a gap of approximately 12" to be created so the first pallet can be removed with zero line pressure. Once removed the mechanism automatically releases the next pallet to start the process again. In deeper applications multiple automatic separators are required.

Pallet Flow Speed Controllers

Speed controllers are used to govern load speed within a given lane. The quantity and type of controller selected depend on the Logic Flow solution employed and the application. Generally the quantity is ‘N minus1’ when ‘N’ is the number of pallets in a lane (i.e. 10 pallets deep would typically require 9 speed controllers). The intent of the speed controller is to keep the pallet under 60FPM as it travels within the rack structure. All our speed controllers require no maintenance and are proven in thousands of installations worldwide.
