Colby de­liv­ers high-den­sity stor­age to Aus­tralian DC’s with new push-back pal­let rack­ing so­lu­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

De­matic has launched a new high-den­sity stor­age so­lu­tion for ware­house oper­a­tions – Colby push-back pal­let rack­ing.

Colby push-back pal­let rack­ing pro­vides high-den­sity stor­age where pal­lets are stored up to six pal­lets deep. Us­ing a fork­lift, pal­lets are pushed back on carts on in­clined rails mounted in­side the rack­ing. As a pal­let is with­drawn, the cart hold­ing a pal­let be­hind au­to­mat­i­cally slides for­ward to the front po­si­tion.

Push-back pal­let rack­ing is a great al­ter­na­tive to dou­bledeep or drive-in rack­ing be­cause it makes great use of space, while still al­low­ing fast and easy ac­cess to stock. The sys­tem op­er­ates on a First In Last Out ( FILO) ba­sis.

Colby’s new rack­ing is ideal for bulk stor­age, or­der con­sol­i­da­tion, and des­patch. De­matic’s struc­tural engi­neers have de­signed the sys­tem with safety, in­tegrity, and re­li­a­bil­ity in mind. All carts are of rigid frame con­struc­tion and run on large wheel bear­ings for smooth per­for­mance. The rails en­close the wheels, pre­vent­ing any dis­lodge­ment of the carts and keep­ing the run­ning sur­face free of de­bris. Stop­per plates lo­cate the pal­lets se­curely on all carts.
