The stacking storage system is quite simple, consisting of placing the units of charge in stacks on the storage shelves. The system is adopted when it is necessary to store large quantities of products, being possible to stack them within a reasonable height, not allowing crushing.
The application of the storage system by stacking is very applied to store beverages, food, appliances and other products, using more space and not having a bigger investment for the system.
This is a very practical storage system, since when a particular product batch is withdrawn during a storage cycle, vacant spaces will emerge which, however, cannot be filled by different batches until all loads are removed from the queue, and a rotation of the FIFO storage system, ie “first in, first out”, can be implemented. The stacking storage system has as its main characteristic the depth of storage units Honolulu queue where the number of storage queues required for a given batch is placed in stack.
Security in the storage system by stacking
For the stacking storage system, it is important to maintain and achieve a good level of security when storing the products, with stacking and disposal of materials and equipment properly. Care must be taken to plan what will be stored and the means to do this storage, using the available resources and ensuring the safety of the personnel in charge of the stock in the first place.
In the storage system by stacking some rules cannot be forgotten, as we can highlight the following:
The formation of batteries in the storage system by stacking, if not performed correctly, can lead to serious accidents, including human lives, in addition to natural material damage. To avoid problems, we should always consider the recommended storage operations.
For the stacking system it is necessary, before storing the materials, to make sure that the place where the items will be deposited is flat, solid and has the necessary resistance to support the gross weight of the materials that will be stacked. The weight of the equipment or goods must never exceed the strength of the base.
The stacking storage system does not allow any type of material to be supported on the walls or that materials incompatible with each other are stored.
Storage of materials or equipment should be done in a way that does not impair lighting and ventilation, allowing good on-site transit, without obstructing access to emergency exits or other necessary storage facilities such as fire hydrants or firefighting systems. fire.
For stacking of coils in the storage system by stacking it is necessary to use shims to avoid rolling of the materials. When making manual stacking, materials may not have stacks larger than 2 meters in height. The stacking base cannot maintain contact with damp or soggy locations, avoiding contamination or rotting of the bases to avoid instability of the stacking. Toxic or combustible materials should be stored in an appropriate place away from others for personal use or food.
Calculations for the stacking storage system
The stacking storage system can be made without security stock or keeping a minimum number for security of supply, especially when it is a retail store, such as a supermarket.
The best method to maintain a safety stock is to use a computerized system, properly recording the inflows and outflows of the inventory and not allowing the minimum quantity to be lower than the average of the last months, allowing the supply to be constant and always with products within the validity period.
