Guiding Rails FIFO (set)

Build a FIFO station based on need while saving space with FATH Guiding Rails FIFO


Due to the modularity, the FIFO station can be flexibly adapted in length and width. - you can set it up exactly according to individual requirements and expand it at any time. The Guiding Rails FIFO are bolted together with connecting plates directly at the infeed caps. This connecting element ensures stability and specifies the track width. The number of tracks can be selected as required.

For the desired track length, the individual Guiding Rails FIFO are joined together with a longitudinal connector. Available are the standard lengths 1200, 1800 and 2400 mm and on request in the length you require.

The FATH Guiding Rails FIFO are laid in a floating manner. The FIFO track does not have to be screwed to the floor to rest securely, which protects the hall floor. The rails are held by the dead weight of the dollies. For special requirements, bolting to the floor is optionally possible, the holes are integrated in the insertion caps.

One guide rail per track is sufficient for the safe placement of the dollies. The side on which the Dolly is guided can be freely selected. For three tracks, for example, only three Guiding Rails are required. This reduces costs, saves space and offers additional flexibility.

Innovative: extra wide insertion caps for easy threading of Dollies

FATH has redesigned the infeed caps for even more efficiency in handling the Dollies. The extra wide designed opening acts like a funnel and makes loading the FIFO station much easier. Even if the rollers are not visible at all under the boxes, they can be threaded effortlessly into the rail. Employees can perform this step intuitively - the workflows are fluid and easy on the back.

The insertion caps are mounted at the front and rear end of each track. This allows the FIFO principle (First-In-First-Out) to be implemented perfectly - for an optimized internal flow of goods.

Another strong plus: The FATH infeed caps for the FIFO station are manufactured using the aluminum die-casting process and, unlike conventional plastic caps, are break-resistant.

Would you like to learn more about the FATH Guiding Rails?

The FATH Guiding Rails FIFO are available in two designs: 

One design is unique on the market: rectangular joints allow a cost-effective enclosure, for example for marking tracks. Due to the 8 profile slot incorporated in the Guiding Rails FIFO, superstructures with all common 40 x 40mm profiles can be easily mounted. A post for the signage is simply placed from above at a 90° angle and securely anchored in the slot. Integration on protective enclosures is also possible without complications. 

Rapid, easy installation with no bolting to the floor

The other version (the standard product) has a more compact design and thus a slimmer structure. The Guiding Rails have an outer contour that is beveled at 45° and have a 10 mm slot on the angled side of the rail for superstructures with 30 x 30 mm profiles. With this 45° adaptation, a post is placed with a 45° angled connector. Superstructures or enclosures can be implemented in any shape. This design is compatible with rails already available on the market, but comes up trumps with a special quality feature: The die-cast aluminum insertion caps are significantly more stable than the plastic caps commonly available on the market.

Space-saving, one-sided rail guide

Guiding Rails are only one possible step of many.

FATH Guiding Rails FIFO and FATH Dollies

In combination with the FATH Dollies, material supply becomes even more efficient. The Dollies are designed to fit all KLT/Euro containers 400 x 600 mm and offer a high load capacity of up to 250 kg. As empties, they can be stacked to save space and stored in the smallest of spaces. Versions are available with and without side guides and with drawbar systems suitable for tugger trains. All FATH Casters for Dollies are equipped with high-quality wheels from the manufacturer Blickle Germany.
