So what exactly is the shelf, and what does the shelf contain in a broad sense?

First let's take a look at the characteristics of the shelves.

1. The goods are stored in the high end, slide to the low end, and take out from the low end. During the sliding of the cargo, a damper is arranged on the slide to control the speed of the cargo to stay within a safe range. A separator is provided at one end of the chute delivery, and the conveying machine can smoothly take out the goods at the position of the first plate.

2. The goods follow the first-in, first-out order. The shelf has a high storage density and a flexible fit.

3. It is suitable for storage operations with pallets as carriers. The stack of goods is neat, which provides a better solution for the storage of large and heavy objects. The storage space utilization rate is above 75%, and only one incoming and outgoing channel is needed.

4. Gravity shelves are very environmentally friendly, all adopt unpowered form, no energy consumption, low noise, safe and reliable, and can operate at full capacity.

5. There is no working channel between the group and the group of the shelf, which increases the space utilization rate by 60% and improves the volume ratio of the storage; the tray operation follows the principle of first in, first out; automatic storage and rotation; storage and picking two actions The separation greatly increases the output, and since the load is self-gravity, and there is no operation channel, the number of transportation routes and the number of forklifts is reduced.

Let's talk about how the shelf should be maintained.

For the simple maintenance and maintenance of the shelves, the general shelf design is relatively simple, so maintenance and maintenance will be very simple.

The first is the cleaning of the shelves: cleaning is very important for a shelf, because the shelves are usually placed in the warehouse, and some units of the warehouse are generally few people. Only when you need something, will you rush to get it, and then hurriedly leave. So very few people go to clean the shelves. Frequent cleaning of the shelf will extend the shelf life. The cleaning of the shelf is not necessarily washed with water, as long as there is no dust on it. And washing the shelves with water is easy to oxidize the surface of the shelf, greatly reducing the shelf life. Then put the shelves neatly: tools, accessories, workpieces (products) should be placed neatly, pipes, lines must be organized to avoid blocking the passage. Moreover, the neatly arranged shelves are not easy to hit, increasing the safety of the shelves and goods! Then safety: be sure to remember the weight of the shelf, do not put more than the weight of the goods, so as not to cause a safety accident.
