Vienna, OH (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Liberty Technologies, a Millwood Company, has introduced a patent-pending SafeFlo technology for the storage and controlled gravity flow of slip sheets and other pallet-less load applications.
Similar to SafeFlo solutions already available to handle palletized loads, the slip sheet system uses air and gravity to control the movement of unit loads through a high density storage system. When at rest, the slip sheet load rests on steel rails rather than conveyor rollers or wheels. As a result, the load doesn’t conform to the shape of the rollers, which inhibits the movement of a load through conventional deep-lane storage solutions. “We believe we are the only dynamic, deep-lane storage solution to handle slip sheets and to deliver the consistency to interface with automation, such as AS/RS cranes or AGVs,” says John Wylie, Director- Sales and Applications, SafeFlo Technology.
All SafeFlo products are OSHA compliant for confined space “Lock-Out, Tag-Out.” SafeFlo solutions can accommodate pallets, slip sheets and loads of varying weights in the same lane, integrate with automated materials handling systems and have zero line force at the discharge end. What’s more, SafeFlo solutions maintain constant alignment; a load will not shift across the rollers or wheels as it flows through the system.
