Carton Flow Rack - Mallard Manufacturing

Beverage distribution customers deserve more than a one-size-fits-all approach to meeting your distinct inventory needs… that’s what Mallard Manufacturing delivers and what will be on display at Bev Ops Fleet Summit March 17-19. Our gravity flow product lines are designed with your unique stock storage and processing in mind. Keg-Flow, Bottle Pick Rack, Carton Flow and Pallet Flow are powerful warehouse storage solutions that rely on gravity (and some keen engineering) to produce measurable results.

Mallard Gravity Flow Beverage Solutions

Keg Flow - Mallard Manufacturing
Keg Flow

Keg Flow

  • Fits all sizes and shape kegs
  • Storage density up to 8 kegs deep
  • Automatic pick face replenishment
  • FIFO or LIFO rotation
  • Full width, heavy-duty rollers
  • Retrofits existing pallet rack
  • Heavy-duty, galvanized steel rollers

For storage and order selection of individual kegs, Mallard’s keg flow racking offers efficiency and space-saving gravity flow storage. Keg flow harnesses the power of gravity to flow kegs from a separate charge aisle to pick aisle for FIFO inventory rotation or kegs can be loaded from a single aisle in a push-back type LIFO arrangement. In both cases gravity flow kicks in to automatically replenish the pick face and enable fast & accurate picks. Robust construction and abuse resistant components ensure long-term, low-maintenance usability.

Safely secure individual bottles and provide a more efficient storage solution for slower-moving, each-pick (vs case pick) SKUs with Bottle Pick Rack. The unique design of the bottle trough consolidates slower moving SKUs into a smaller footprint freeing up valuable warehouse space, while also keeping SKUs neat and orderly for faster, more accurate picks.

Pallet Flow Racking

  • FIFO or LIFO (push-back) inventory rotation
  • Deep-lane reserve storage
  • Fully customizable, accommodates any size pallet
  • Automatic pick face replenishment
  • Low-maintenance, easy to use, built to last

Pallet flow racking is a highly-productive, yet simple to use and maintain inventory storage system for two-deep to over 20 pallets deep per lane. With the addition of Mallard signature pallet separators, pallet flow is an ideal storage solution for case-pick from pallet, layer-pick, and even picking via the Ergo Cell hydraulic lift table.

Pallet Separators for Pallet Flow

Pallet separators are designed to hold back the rear pallets from the front pick-face pallet in order to relieve that pallet of the back pressure naturally transferred within in a flow lane. But not all pallet separators are created equal… not even within Mallard! We offer 7 different types of pallet separators to meet all your pallet flow needs.

Pallet separators are easy to operate and install right within the pallet flow lane. Contact the Mallard team to ensure you’re choosing the best fit for your pallet flow needs.

Carton Flow Racking

When it comes to storing and picking lower volume cases or individual items, carton flow is the answer — whether stand-alone or combined with conveyor within a pick module, carton flow provides space-saving FIFO carton storage to neatly organize SKUs for faster, more accurate picks.

Dyna-Flow Carton Flow - Mallard Manufacturing
Dyna-Flo Carton Flow

Mallard has several lines of carton flow racking to meet the needs of beverage distribution and processing facilities. Install stand alone, or as part of a pick module:

  • Cart-Trak is a full-roller carton flow for consistently-sized carton storage. The roller design provides full carton coverage for reliable flow even when carton surfaces are not firm or perfectly smooth.
  • Dyna-Flo is designed as a full-bed wheeled carton flow solution which is ideal for differently-sized and shaped inventory. Dyna-Flo conveniently drops into existing pallet rack for easy installation and comes in standard or heavy-duty depending on inventory needs.

Customizable accessories enhance the efficiency and ease of processing with carton flow:

  • Impact trays can be installed on the charge end of the system to absorb the repeated blows of loading heavy cases of inventory and protect the wheels and rollers.
  • Tilt-trays provide an ergonomic-supportive picking position for workers which enables them to see the pick better increasing speed and accuracy of picks.
  • Lane dividers and entry guides are useful for keeping inventory in designed SKU lanes for improved pick accuracy, faster replenishment and to satisfy regulatory mandates where required.
