Push Back: maximum space-saving use
For the bees, it may even work very well, but when we talk about logistics, hive is a word that even gives goosebumps to anyone who plans a well-structured warehouse.
In practice, the hive or honeycomb effect is synonymous with inefficiency, with a low rate of use of the cubic space available. But, with the right tools, you can fit everything and a little more, in an organized way, and the best: without the suffering of putting together a new puzzle with each shipment of goods that arrives.
In this post, we’ll talk about a solution by Águia Sistemas designed especially for those who need to store a lot of stuff in a not-so-big space: the Push Back.
You enter the warehouse and are faced with a sea of boxes, of different sizes and varied products, and here comes the question: how to organize all of this, knowing where each item is, but without leaving too many gaps between them. That’s where Push Back comes in.
To facilitate understanding, think of a kitchen cabinet, empty and without shelves. Can you imagine keeping the purchase of the month in there? And when you need to get the coffee powder, which was there, at the bottom, and under several other packages, because it was the only place in which, to fill this cupboard, it would end up fitting? You will already have lost the desire to drink that coffee even before the first cup.
Now, what if you could organize these packages into well-identified rows, with different levels and easy access to each of them? Much better, isn’t it? That’s more or less what Push Back accomplishes, but on a much larger scale. In it, the rows become tunnels, with capacity to store, in depth, an average of three pallets, with 1,200 kg each.
As in intralogistics, we do not speak only in square meters — but in volume, cubic meters — the Push Back has different “floors”: they are the levels, which allow you to store pallets with different products in relation to the others. Space is optimized from floor to ceiling, gaining storage density, ie less hive effect.
As in the Dinâmico , the Push Back tracks are produced from steel rollers and high-precision bearings. The displacement of the pallets takes place with the least amount of friction possible, making the operation safe at the entrance of the goods, with the help of forklifts, and at the exit as well, taking advantage of gravity to make them slide evenly and without “jolts” over the track — with zero cost of electricity.
In comparison with Dynamic, one of the main differences is the system used: in the case of Push Back, LIFO ( last in, first out). Here, the last pallet unloaded on the rollers is the first to leave, so the Push Back adapts very well to reduced spaces that need to house a very large volume of cargo, especially those with high turnover. They are products with great output, which need to be released in one to two months, on average. Therefore, access to them is easy and fast, as they are ahead of others that were already stored. In the end, there’s even time left to put together a puzzle (but for fun, really!).
