Because its cantilever can be made single-sided or double-sided, its height is generally within 5.0 meters, with the characteristics of stable structure, good load capacity and high space utilization.

4. Three-dimensional design

Cantilever shelves belong to three-dimensional design drawings and multi-side presentation. And cantilever shelf three-dimensional drawings have front and side view displays, in its design, the biggest feature is the arm needs to have a blocking piece, the intention is to avoid the decline of goods, and the arm is tilted upward.

5. Adjustable level height

The cantilever rack adopts adjustable columns, users can adjust the distance between the cantilever and increase or decrease the cantilever according to their actual needs.

6. Use with forklift and stacker

Cantilever racking can be matched with a stacker crane or forklift, which can improve the efficiency of material circulation, reduce the cost of storage and transportation, and increase the economic benefit.

6. Additional facilities can be added

For the convenience and flexibility of goods storage, like some bulk and not only bulky goods, you can add steel plates or wooden boards or mesh on the cantilever arm, so that the cantilever shelves with increased facilities are also more suitable for warehouses with low floors and small spaces.

7. Racking unit

A cantilever racking system is a row of racks formed by connecting multiple columns, not individual racks, and each of its racking units can sort and store different types of goods, and can effectively store pipes, wood, strips and other similar goods.

8. Adjustable cantilever length

The length of cantilever shelves can be freely combined and adjusted according to the actual site conditions.

9. Labor-saving

A cantilever racking system can reduce labor intensity and improve labor conditions, and can also improve the mechanization of material circulation.

10. Anti-corrosion racks

Mracking cantilever rack belongs to anti-corrosion racks, with high corrosion resistance racks, it adds Al, Mg, Ni, Cr and other alloys of special steel, and a certain range of Al, Mg, Ni, Cr content increases so that the steel plate than the general plate corrosion resistance increased by several times to more than ten times. Furthermore, the surface treatment of anti-corrosion racks plays a pivotal role in the whole production process, Mracking anti-corrosion racks in the pre-processing treatment, processing equipment debugging, post-processing treatment, surface passivation treatment, coating methods are through layers of strict control to ensure the anti-corrosion performance of the racks, and for the problem of sealing the coating, but also the use of high corrosion-resistant coating secondary coating process, which greatly improves The sealing of the coating.

Cantilever racking system disadvantages.

  1. only able to store long materials.
  2. Relatively high input cost.
  3. High requirements for construction site ground.
  4. High requirements for workers’ safety operation.

Cantilever racking production materials.

Cantilever racks are generally made of two materials, namely:

1. C-steel production: cantilever rack according to the corresponding cantilever layer load requirements, first selected c-steel specifications, selected after the two pieces of c-steel butt welding, welding in one end after welding anti-slip shield, the other end welding connection u-column connectors.

2. Square tube production: according to the corresponding cantilever layer load requirements, the cantilever rack first selects the square tube that meets the layer load requirements, cut it into the required size, welds the anti-slip guard at one end, and welds the u-shaped column connection at the other end.

Mracking heavy duty cantilever racking production process.

1. PLC control

The cutting error of Mracking’s production material is generally within 0.2mm, which is much smaller than the national standard of 1mm.

2. The cold-forming machine

The structure of the laminate is one piece of eight bends, and the back plate is one piece of four bends and once formed, while the bending part does not need welding at all.

3. Stamping equipment

4. Double-seam automatic welding

Mracking adopts multi-directional fixed and automatic welding so that the welding efficiency is more efficient and the welding seam is flat and even.

5. Primary processing process

Mracking’s primary processing process generally adopts high-quality steel forming and processing equipment, which is customized by the leading domestic mold manufacturer according to the customer’s requirements. The production process includes primary processing, precision rolling, automatic welding and forming, removal of appearance defects, inspection, etc.

6. Rust removal process

Mracking adopts the more energy-saving and environmentally friendly vitrified process instead of the traditional phosphate surface treatment process and has invested a lot of money to build its own sewage harmless treatment facilities (water washing to remove surface dust), thus ensuring that the whole rust removal process is more environmentally friendly (neutral degreasing, vitrified, passivation), and at the same time guaranteeing the higher functional characteristics of the racks and equipment.

7. Spraying equipment

Mracking adopts automatic spraying equipment, electrostatic spraying, so as to ensure the quality of the surface paint film, as well as to ensure that the surface paint film brightness and thickness of the racks and equipment can reach uniformity.
