Thanks to a modular design concept, FIFO stations can be adapted precisely to your requirements and extended at any time. FATH's FIFO Guiding Rails are screwed directly onto the infeed caps with connecting plates. This connection element guarantees stability and determines the track width. The number of tracks can be selected based on requirements.
Individual guiding rails are joined together with a lengthwise connector to achieve the desired track length. FIFO Guiding Rails are available in the standard lengths 1200, 1800 and 2400 mm or in the exact length, you require upon request.
The extremely wide opening in the infeed caps acts like a funnel and helps facilitate the loading of the FIFO station. Wheels can be effortlessly slid into the rails even when the dollies are completely hidden from view. The infeed caps are mounted at the start and end of each track. This allows operators to implement the FIFO concept (first-in, first-out) perfectly, ensuring an optimized in-house flow of goods.
Yet another invaluable extra: FATH's infeed caps for FIFO stations are aluminum die-casted which makes them unbreakable, unlike conventional plastic caps.
The 8 mm profile slot incorporated into the FIFO Guiding Rails can be used to effortlessly mount structures with all standard 40 x 40 mm profiles, such as enclosures to indicate tracks. A post for signs is simply positioned at a 90° angle from above and securely inserted into the slot. Machine protection enclosures can also be effortlessly integrated. Thanks to the practical rectangular connections, such housing can be implemented significantly faster and at a far lower cost than with conventional rails.
FATH's FIFO Guiding Rails feature a floating installation design. FIFO stations do not need to be bolted to the floor to ensure they rest securely, protecting warehouse floors. The rails are held by the dead load of the floor rollers. A bolted connection to the floor is available as an option for special requirements; drilling patterns are already integrated into the infeed caps.
One guiding rail per track is sufficient to hold floor rollers firmly in position. You can freely choose which side the floor rollers is guided through. Just three guiding rails are required for three tracks, for example. This reduces costs, saves space and provides additional flexibility.
