OHRA dynamic rack systems Capacity increase due to modular racking

Dynamic racking systems

Dynamic racking systems are modular rack systems which, in comparison with static racking systems, can achieve increases in storage capacities due to their type and technical components and thus accelerate the order-picking process.

OHRA dynamic rack systems – sustainable investment

In comparison with conventional racking, the initial purchase costs of a dynamic rack system are slightly higher. However, in the long run and with correct operation, the significantly higher economic benefits that the rack provides will pay off these investment costs. OHRA provides all typical systems, ranging from a cardboard flow racking to heavy-load pallet flow racking to cater for any different fields of application and investment budgets.

OHRA dynamic rack systems – your benefits

  • Modular standardised components
  • Adjustment to storage goods and fields of application
  • Wide range of products
  • Optimisation of travel routes and order-picking times

Pallet flow racking

Pallet flow racks are among the most compact methods for storage and picking according to the first-in-first-out principle. Thanks to the channel formation, high utilisation of the surface area is generated and with uniform pallets, optimum degree of filling is achieved. The smooth roller system with integrated brake support rollers, the product’s own weight moves it to the removal position. The pallet separation unit on the removal side ensures safe handling. 

OHRA pallet flow racking – your benefits

  • Modular standardised components
  • High load-bearing capacities and durability
  • Safe handling through pallet separation
  • Suitable for all smooth-running surfaces
  • FIFO principle - optimisation of transport routes and order-picking times

Order-picking flow racking

The order-picking flow racks are used in a similar way than the pallet flow racks, however, preferably for cardboard or plastic boxes that are suitable for transport on roller conveyors. Particularly for order-picking of products with regular turnover (medium-moving items) and with high turnover (fast-moving items), flow racks are the proper and most effective storage solution. 

OHRA order-picking flow racking – optimised times

Thanks to the FIFO principle, the stored goods are transported to the removal position by their own weight and are then ready for order-picking. Work routes become shorter, picking times are optimised and refill aisles are separated. In planning of order-picking racks, ergonomics of the workplaces always has very high priority.

OHRA order-picking flow racking – your benefits

  • Modular standardised components
  • Individual plastic rollers with steel shafts that can be loaded with up to 6 kg
  • Suitable for cardboard and plastic boxes
  • FIFO principle - optimisation of transport routes and order-picking times

Push-back racking – trolley systems

Push-back systems, also referred to as trolley systems provide a space-saving storage option based on the last-in-first-out principle. These racks are ideally suited for applications involving batches of the same types of articles. 

OHRA push-back rack – contact-free storage on trolleys

With the push-back trolley system, the pallets are deposited on a rail system in the channel system, one after the other. Then, they are also removed from the same side: Stacking depths of up to 6 pallets are possible. Advantage over push-back racking with conventional gravity roller conveyors: During the storage process, the uppermost loaded trolley with pallet to be stored next is pushed back. This pallet is then deposited on the next free trolley. Direct contact with the goods is thus prevented.

OHRA push-back racking – your benefits

  • Modular standardised components
  • Storage depths of up to 6 pallets possible
  • Can be used with sensitive palletised goods - no contact of the pallets
  • LIFO - optimisation of transport routes and order-picking times

Push-back racks – roller conveyor systems

The benefit of push-back racks with roller conveyor systems is in the quantity of goods that can be stored in the available depth. Up to 10 pallets in a row. In comparison with push-back racking with trolley systems, the building height is lower. Due to the high push forces required to move the pallets, push-back racks are particularly suitable for insensitive goods.

  • Modular standardised components
  • Storage depths of up to 10 pallets possible
  • Can be used with insensitive goods
  • Optimisation of travel routes and order-picking times
