FIFO System

Rail terminal

FIFO queues (first in first out) are particular warehouses within finite capacity in which the products are stored one after another so that the first product that comes in the store is the first to be taken.

FIFO tails allow the flow to run, although they introduce a delay in the production lead time more or less long depending on the size of the tail.

Processes separated by a FIFO queue are not completely decoupled, because the length of the tail is set and once filled, the previous process must stop.

Decoupling using FIFO queues is typically used when:

  • the machine has low reliability;
  • the machine, although can work all the products in the available time, does not ensure that the cycle time for all the products remain within the takt time;
  • the machine can not work all the products in the available time because of the presence of products with a cycle time greater than the takt time;
  • processes are off-line or remote outsourced;
  • the products come in indipendent flows so you do not need to take them from the supply.

Connect rails and terminals. Connect rails profle and double terminals.
Use the adaptor to connect two rails and the terminals. Use the adaptor to connect the rails to the frame and to
the double terminals.

Remove the protective film from the tape on the backside. Place the rail in the desired position and press firmly.
Place the dolly’s wheels beside the rail. Place the second rail and fix it.
Fix the terminals to the floor using raw plugs and screws.

Dolly guide on single side, suitable for rubber wheels

Dolly guide on two sides, suitable for polyamide wheels

Usign the double terminal it is possible to create an aluminium profile structure to optimize the space over the dollies to implement gravity rollers for lightweight products, protections, etc.
