Designing the perfect solution for customers is one of the things we do best at BUILT Systems, and this is because we began by designing the perfect solutions for our own facility. This heavy-duty inventory rack is a product that began as a need for our very own facility. Seeing the need for this product beyond our walls has allowed us to expand on this design and offer it to many customers since.
To create this inventory rack, the team at BUILT needed to think outside of the box and come up with an all-new design. Using existing and proven design methods, the engineering team began creating a product to fit exactly what was needed.
Mansco was providing kanban hardware that needed an easy FIFO system for stocking bins.
The racks needed to be 6 rows high, 4 columns wide, and fit a standard bin size that Mansco provided. Each section needed to hold 4-5 bins deep to allow for high volume parts.
Brainstorming and Design
Initial design started with making the bin in CAD, then patterning the bin into the width, height, and depth needed. The engineering team then added the steel components into the assembly, marrying them with the bin pattern, verifying that everything fit and “flowed” properly. Once the steel matched the bin pattern, each welded part was tested via simulation to verify the strength. Once each welded part passed, the overall rack system was tested in simulation to verify the weight capacity.
The whole rack ended up being modular weldments that bolt together. 12ga steel tube weldments support each shelf, allowing the shelves to hold up to 400lbs each. Integrated forklift guides allow for a forklift to move these racks once they are fully assembled. These features allowed these rack to be semi-mobile (via forklift) structures that provided easy stocking and inventory views. The stability of this rack allows for a solid, strong, heavy-duty inventory rack that we at BUILT are proud to display.
Providing solutions just like this is something that fits well in the BUILT Systems wheelhouse. The team is always excited to collaborate to come up with products that meet the needs of the end-user. Contact us today to learn more about how BUILT Systems can help you!
