FIFO Station - Rails

Yellow plastic rails for guiding the trolleys on one or both sides. 2 elements must be unique with an adapter and terminals are then added. It is possible to integrate a 45x30 mm aluminum profile to allow you to take advantage of the space above the trolleys, for example to display suspended signs or to create a warehouse. Available in different lengths.

FIFO Station - Terminals

3 terminal alternatives for various uses: compact solution, with profile or in one direction only. All equipped with holes for fixing to the ground. Made of resistant and black plastic material. Terminated STD and double V-shaped to facilitate the entry of the trolleys in the lanes.

FIFO Station - Adapter

White junction element for the coupling of 2 FIFO Station elements - Tracks. You are advised to place an adapter approximately every binary cdi meter. Length 250 mm.

FIFO Station - Connector

The joint, the black rigid plastic, pre-drilled for fixing to the ground, allows the length of the individual tracks to be extended to the required dimensions. fits on the tracks to be connected.

FIFO Station - Spacer for profile 45x30 mm

Spacer to be placed between the FIFO Stations - Left and right terminals when creating a Track with integrated 45x30 mm profile. Supplied pre-drilled for anchoring to the ground.

FIFO Station - fixing screw

Screw for fixing the FIFO Station - Terminals to the pavement. Each element is made up of 1 screw, 1 nut, 1 plug.

In depth


FIFO queues (first in first out) are particular warehouses within finite capacity in which the products are stored one after another so that the first product that comes in the store is the first to be taken.

FIFO tails allow the flow to run, although they introduce a delay in the production lead time more or less long depending on the size of the tail.

Processes separated by a FIFO queue are not completely decoupled, because the length of the tail is set and once filled, the previous process must stop.

Decoupling using FIFO queues is typically used when:

  • the machine has low reliability;
  • the machine, although can work all the products in the available time, does not ensure that the cycle time for all the products remain within the takt time;
  • the machine can not work all the products in the available time because of the presence of products with a cycle time greater than the takt time;
  • processes are off-line or remote outsourced;
  • the products come in indipendent flows so you do not need to take them from the supply.



How to connect rails and terminals or rails, profile and double terminals


 1) Use the adapter to connect the two rails and terminals and close  1) Use the adapter to connect the rails to the profile and double terminals.
2) Remove the protective film from the adhesive tape on the back, position it in the desired position and press firmly.
3) Place the dolly’s wheels beside the rail. Place the second rail and fix it.
Dolly guide on single side, suitable for rubber wheels Dolly guide on two sides, suitable for polyamide wheels
4) Fix the terminals to the floor using raw plugs and screws.
