Pallet Rack Supported Pick Modules
Pallet rack supported pick modules are popular in warehouse and distribution facilities where high-density and efficient order picking are essential. These modules are built within pallet racks, which provide structural support and stability, allowing for the construction of multi-level order picking platforms.
A pick module typically consists of a series of elevated platforms, interconnected by stairways or conveyor systems. Each platform is designed to support a specific function in the order fulfillment process, such as order picking, packing, or shipping. This design allows workers to easily access and move products throughout the facility, increasing productivity and reducing labor costs.
One of the key advantages of a pallet rack supported pick module is the ability to utilize vertical space within a facility. By building platforms within pallet racks, facilities can greatly increase storage density while maintaining efficient order picking processes. This means more products can be stored and picked in the same amount of floor space, resulting in significant cost savings over time.
In addition to their space saving benefits, rack supported pick modules are also highly customizable. Facilities can choose from a variety of options such as conveyor systems, mezzanines, carton flow systems, and stairways to create a system that meets their specific needs. This allows facilities to maximize the order fulfillment capabilities while minimizing unnecessary costs.
However, it is important to note the construction of a pallet rack supported pick system requires careful planning and execution. Facilities must ensure that the pallet racks are able to support the weight of the pick module, as well as any additional equipment or products that will be stored in the pick system. Additionally, facilities must ensure that the pick module meets all OSHA and IBC codes.
Overall, pallet rack supported pick modules are a highly efficient and cost effective solution for warehouse and distribution facilities that require high-density and efficient order picking processes. With careful planning and execution, these systems can greatly increase productivity and reduce labor costs, allowing facilities to stay competitive in today’s fast paced business environment.
