Over the course of the past fifty years, Unex Manufacturing has evolved alongside our customers in order to accommodate their changing needs and practices. As the world of material handling has grown and proliferated, so have the challenges our customers face on a daily basis. These changes require both an evolving philosophy as well as an evolving product line. Here at Unex, we never stop working to improve our solutions. We have fifty years of working closely with manufacturers, distributors, end users, and others in order to ensure the solutions we offer can meet the changing needs of the industry. It’s this spirit of continuous improvement that has allowed us to redesign and enhance our new and improved Flow Bed.

Flow Bed is designed for those who are looking to accommodate expanding and ever-changing inventories. It is perfect for operations in which product dimensions or locations frequently change. This design has been amped up in our new Flow Bed, and offers even more advantages than our previous model.

We’ve doubled the amount of wheels in our redesigned Flow Bed. This greatly decreases the gaps between the wheels, allowing smaller cartons to easily flow alongside larger cartons. More wheels means an increase in the surface area upon which your products can flow, further limiting imprinting on your cartons and providing a far better flow. We have also increased the diameter of the Flow Bed wheel. This provides better restart for smaller, more light weight cartons. The design of the wheel hubs has been altered in order to reduce friction. This results in a much improved initial flow of your cartons.

Despite all the changes we’ve made to our Flow Bed, many of the things that make this an ideal carton flow solution have remained the same. “If it ain’t broke,” right? We still use a high density, polyethylene wheel pattern. This allows our Flow Bed to contact the product over a larger area, reducing imprinting and providing a better flow. Flow Beds axles are still retained in the track, eliminating the risk of pop outs that can hamper your product’s flow. We still provide compatible infeed guides, impact plates, and other accessories to improve the functionality of Flow Bed. Our heavy-duty side channels will still bring the strength and durability that our solutions are known for, and Flow Bed still boasts a capacity of fifty pounds per square foot. We’ve retained Flow Bed’s drop-in design in order to provide easy and convenient installation. Finally, we still back up our Flow Bed with our Seven Year Platinum Warranty.
