Portable storage rack saves time and space Keeping odd-shaped products organized and stored for shipping or assembly has posed a problem for many fabricators and assemblers in all kinds of industries.
Now, using a unique Pin Rack portable stacking rack from Steel King allows them to store items of all shapes on racks with adjustable pin-type inserts, thereby sa- ving time, space and labor costs.
The Pin Rack handles needs very effi ciently via a design concept somewhat resembling a pegboard, except that the holes are in the bottom of the rack.
The array of ho- les enables the user to insert a number of 12-inch pins in a confi guration that best conforms to the shapes being stored.
This permits users to consolidate inventories better, resulting in more effi cient sto- rage and less waste of time and money in retrieving inventory.
The racks are part of Steel King’s popular Stac King portable rack system, and may be stacked up to ten high to maximize storage effi ciency.
The Pin Rack’s fl exible design has encou- raged some to use it in innovative ways to help organize assembly processes.
For ex- ample, a gasket manufacturer places the pin rack at a 30-degree angle on the fl oor and arranges the drop-in pins in such a manner that the rack will hold a variety of different gasket shapes and sizes.
When assembly of gasket kits or sets is required, the process is simplifi ed, saving time and improving accuracy.

The company´s roots are in Asia, and it is one of the powerhouses behind the Japanese and Asian economies.
As a re- sult, Mitsubishi knows the market and understands the needs of packaging manufacturers as they strive to achieve the optimum balance of cost control, in- vestment and maintaining a competitive edge.
This is important because packa- ging interests, and, therefore, needs, are different in Europe and Asia, and place different demands on suppliers.
Central to Mitsubishi’s strategy is the company’s iQ Automation Platform.
This provides an integrated architecture for all aspects of packaging machinery control, including general, process, motion and IT control.
As a result, designing high speed, high yield systems, as required by the packa- ging industry, is second nature with iQ.
The fl exibility and modularity provided by the iQ Platform means that it can deliver the optimum solution, whether the sys- tem/control requirement is for Low/Me- dium, Medium/High and Ultra-High pro- duction fl ow packaging machines.
