The warehouse racking belongs to the category of rough steel processing and is mainly made of cold-rolled and hot-rolled plates. So, how do these steel plates turn into aesthetically pleasing, high load-bearing, and stable storage racks? Let's take a brief look at the production process of storage racks.
In the factory workshops that produce storage racks, we usually see equipment such as shearing machines, bending machines, punch presses, spot welding machines, cutting machines, and spray painting lines, all of which mass produce storage racks and warehouse racking solutions. Next, we will explain in detail the raw materials and production process involved in the columns, beams, and shelves of the industrial storage shelves.
Columns are categorized into 120 columns, 90 columns, 70 columns, and 55 columns with a common plate thickness of 1.5mm or 2.0mm. The raw material used to produce columns is steel strips that have been longitudinally cut. These strips are initially coiled and the required hole shapes are punched on an automatic punch press. The strips are then placed in a standby area, awaiting cutting, while simultaneously being pressed and formed into columns. Common hole shapes include diamond-shaped holes, inverted-eight-shaped holes, water-spot holes, butterfly-shaped holes, and rectangular holes, with hole distances mainly at 50mm, 70mm, 75mm, etc. Common column heights are 2 meters, 2.5 meters, 3 meters, 4 meters, 5 meters, 6 meters, and so on. The columns of warehouse racking, along with their braces and diagonal braces, are connected by screws, forming a column plate.
The beams of industrial stacking shelves are divided into three types: P-shaped beams, welded beams, and clasp beams. P-shaped beams are used for medium-sized shelving. Welded beams and clasp beams are used in conjunction with pallets on heavy duty pallet rack shelving. The clasp beam of storage racks is also called a clasping beam, which is more scientifically designed and simpler than the welded beam. The ends of the beams are welded with column clamps and connected to the columns of the racks with these clamps.
The materials for the shelves of warehouse racking are made of cold-rolled plates. The commonly used shelf plate thicknesses are 0.6mm, 0.7mm, 0.8mm or 1.2mm. The bottom of the shelves must be welded with reinforcing ribs, which support the load-bearing capacity of the shelves. During production, the reinforcing ribs and the shelves must be welded firmly.
The above is a brief introduction to the production process of warehouse racking. Despite their seemingly complex structure, storage racks are not complicated at all. Precise design and calculation are performed beforehand, and the raw materials are transformed by various modern machines, resulting in storage racks that are essential in factories and warehouses. Behind their seemingly magical production process is a team of dedicated professionals. If you need warehouse racking, please contact Maobang warehouse racking manufacturer.
