Carton flow is a vital part in supply chain of components at assembly lines and conveyer belt lines. A picking station is constructed of a rack supplied with leaning wheel tracks for transport of components to the assembly station. Wheel tracks are also used in warehouses as a part of the logistic process. Loading on one side and unloading on the opposite according the FIFO principals (First in first out).
Carton flow are built either as stationary units or supplied with lockable wheels for a fast and simple move at changes in lay out at the assembly line or warehouse. Loading and unloading are separated and picking is realized without interruptions.
The racks are adjustable and designed from an ergonomic point of view in order to get an as ergonomic handling as possible for the workers. Storing in Carton flow systems has large economic advantages due to the fact that cartons are stored with a high packing density which release floor space compared with traditional storing.
