Carton Flow Track Racks - Case Studies

Job Flow Rack
Systems Project


What our customers are saying...

"The flow thru racks have been a great addition to the
overall material handling roadmap. It has greatly helped
with FIFO and the overall inventory reduction project here
at the TRW Fenton plant."

Richard Beckman
Continuous Improvement Manager
TRW Automotive


Project Description
Various areas in the facility had totes stacked on each other, which proved inefficient for picking parts and inventory management.


Solution
Shelving designed and implemented gravity flow rack systems. Using Span-Trac rollers and standard pallet racking, TRW was able to increase productivity for parts rotation utilizing "first-in-first-out" techniques.

More SPAN-TRAC Case Studies

Three carton flow requirements satisfied ONLY by
SPAN-TRACK as identified in a recent survey of order
pickers and management.

1. "Must fit existing pallet rack specs and must be easy to relocate for SKU changes."

"Span-Track goes in easy and ends up right."

Mike Munday, V.P. Operations,
B.F. Company

2. "Must stand up to heavy cartons and rough use."

"I really can't understand why anyone would recommend plastic wheen track when they could have a much more substantial product."

John Pappas, Pesident,
G.S. Goodale Company

3. "Must provide consistent, reliable feed."

"Span-Track fits right into our rack, handles twice the capacity and there aren't any hang-ups."

"Our order pickers love it because they're not wasting time crawling on their bellies to retrieve hung-up boxes."
