Minimize ergonomic injuries with use of flow rack
Flow rack combines heavy-duty handling and storage capacity with gravity-fed point-of-use part/container conveyance and ergonomic part presentation for offloading pieces. Offers convenience of a flat-shelf conveyor section for loading parts onto rack system. Unit features two tiers: Upper level consists of two side-by-side supply lanes that slope toward point of use; lower tier has two return lanes for moving empty totes or filled containers away from workstation and out to parts-transfer area. By positioning components close to workers and at appropriate heights, dual-angle lanes minimize repetitive bending and overreaching motions that can lead to strains and injuries.
