Dynamic racking in Galicia

An important company in the automotive sector in Galicia has benefitted from the advantages of the ATOX dynamic pallet racking system. The customer, working in the production of vehicle air-conditioning systems, needed to optimise the storage of metal containers for automotive parts.

Dynamic racking

Taking into account the customer’s specific needs, the metal racking system consists of a mixed installation with various sizes of roller conveyors, in such a way that the dynamic pallet racking adapts to various sizes of the stored containers. This enables containers of between 0.8 x 1.2 x 1.2 metres weighing 50 kgs and 2.6 x 1.45 x 2.9 weighing 800 kgs to be handled.

The dynamic racks consist of rollers on a slight slope along which the pallets move through the effect of gravity but at a controlled speed. This converts the dynamic racks into a FIFO system where the first load to come in is the first to go out, which provides a high level of rotation but eliminates the need for aisles between pallets, unlike conventional pallet racks.

ATOX Storage Systems, with more than 50 years’ experience, designs and manufactures high quality metal racking adapted to each customer’s specific needs. With a wide range of industrial racking and solutions for warehouse automation, ATOX enables both the warehouse space to be optimised and the handling tasks to be speeded up.
