Stay Competitive with High Density Bulk Storage Shelving and Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks
High Density Bulk Storage Shelving and Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks are innovative solutions for solving storage space challenges. These space efficient high density rolling bulk racks have the ability to double the storage capacity in the same footprint as static shelving and racks giving users an unparalleled storage and productivity advantage in today’s competitive market (images of High Density Bulk Storage Shelving and Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks). Keep reading to see how a paperboard package manufacturing company improved efficiencies in their manufacturing plant by storing materials at the point of use by using High Density Bulk Storage Racks.
Paperboard Company Uses High Density Bulk Storage Shelving to Solve Space Problem
A paperboard package manufacturing company knew that to remain competitive, they needed to operate more efficiently in their new 246,000 square foot facility. To stay competitive, the management team challenged their employees to find better ways to improve productivity and reduce space costs in the new facility. This made for a perfect solution for our High Density Bulk Storage Shelving.
The old facility used a mezzanine to store production line plates. Operators had to stop the production line to retrieve manufacturing plates from racks located on the upper level of a mezzanine. The new facility is designed with High Density Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks located adjacent to the production assembly line, virtually eliminating production downtime. The Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks use 900 square feet of storage floorspace, less than half the floorspace as the static racks used on the old mezzanine storage system. This allowed the company to reduce overhead costs by being more efficient with how they used their floorspace.
The High Density Bulk Storage Shelving Operation and Design Features
The High Density Bulk Storage Shelving system saves floorspace by reducing the number of storage access aisles. Since the plate storage area’s activity is relatively low, the Rolling Wide Space Boltless Racks are a perfect solution. The new storage system uses heavy duty rolling carriages that move sideways to eliminate fixed aisles and create a moveable aisle where and when you need it. The wheeled carriages with wide span boltless racks are placed on tracks and move easily by rotating a three spoke control handle. To retrieve a stored plate, users simply rotate the three spoke control handle to create an access aisle between shelving rows. By eliminating unnecessary access aisle space, storage space can be reduced in half.
The Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks installed at the paperboard package manufacturing company feature five rolling carriages with one access aisle. The wide span racks are designed around the tubular printing plate storage boxes and provide efficient cube utilization. The width of the Rolling Wide Span Boltless Racks allows the boxes to be stored back to back for full access on both sides of each rack.
