Mobile Racking is a space saving and cost effective alternative to static pallet racking applications. It utilizes high-strength mobile bases to manipulate static racking and provides flexible storage solutions within ambient or freezer environments. The semiautomated or fully-automated solution can be used with traditional forklifts or in conjunction with AGV systems.

How it Works

Any number of racks are mounted on carriages and moved on rails using electric motors. Commands are communicated to the mobile racking by radio remote control. The operational release button and carriage controls are fixed directly to the carriage. This prevents unnecessary external components, thus raising the safety level of the system.
