Assembly Show South 2023: In Review

FlowCell modular flow racks were showcased in booth #645!

UNEX Assembly Show South 2023

Every year, hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees visit the Assembly Show in Rosemont, IL produced by Assembly Magazine. This year, the show made its debut in a new market; Nashville, TN. UNEX demoed a variety of assembly solutions in booth #645 at the NEW Assembly Show South.

Check out our show recap to discover top solutions for applications such as lineside storage, assembly and sub-assembly stations, and flow-through workstations. Plus, a one-of-a-kind online 3D product configurator that allows you to create your own assembly solutions that is 100% free!

Single Lane Flow Racks

FlowCell single lane units are great flow racks for transporting goods from process to process and feeding parts directly to workers on an assembly line. The mobility of a unit like this decreases travel time from station to station and presents products in a sequential order to keep your operation efficient. High-profile tracks are a unique solution that the competition can’t deliver. Our tracks can extend 24” in either direction (or both!), allowing you to present parts under or over machinery, worktables, conveyors, and more.

Modular Workstations

Our industrial workstation showcased at The Assembly Show South demonstrated the full capabilities of our FlowCell product line. This unit was outfitted with varying widths of our SpanTrack Lane and SpanTrack Wheel Bed carton flow to show a wide range of flow options. The workstation allowed attendees to experience the different capabilities of our dynamic duo, FlowCell and SpanTrack. These solutions, when used in conjunction, support Lean principles

Mobile Flow Racks

flowcell-heavy-duty-skatewheel-1This mobile cart featured various SpanTrack carton flow tracks, including heavy-duty options. Our 100 series carton flow rollers are made of galvanized steel with bearings, while our skatewheel is available in steel, and each wheel has a bearing. UNEX FlowCell storage racks are placed on the assembly line to reduce transportation time. This rack featured our heavy-duty roller lanes for maximum durability. While these lanes can handle up to 200 pounds per foot, most customers choose these for the increased impact resistance, the more substantial steel rollers afford.

Pick Tray Carts

This industrial picking cart featured two levels of galvanized steel pick trays above one flat shelf below. Keeping small parts close to the line and readily accessible is a great use of the steel pick tray cart. Steel shelves are ideal for presenting parts for picking.

Supermarket Racks

Manufacturing Supermarket
Not featured in the booth, but undoubtedly worth an honorable mention, are our supermarket racks! Our FlowCell and Roller Rack solutions are ideal for creating space-conscious and efficient manufacturing supermarket areas. Mimicking the functionality of an actual retail supermarket, the manufacturing supermarket is a storage area within a facility where parts are stored and picked by workers to replenish smaller storage racks, modular carts, and/or workstations along the assembly line.

Roller Rack structures provide carton flow for the various storage mediums used in picking operations. Quick and easy to build, Roller Rack is ideal for manufacturing supermarkets due to its durable, flexible, and modular design.

FlowCell modular flow racks are proven to increase efficiency within high-volume operations by creating a seamless integration between the manufacturing supermarket and other areas of a facility.
