Hannibal Industries (Booth 1928) is showcasing the TubeRack system, offered as a stronger and safer alternative to conventional rack systems, which provides a lower overall cost of ownership, said Steve Rogers, VP of sales at the employee-owned company. The structural rack’s dual-movement frame allows flexibility both front-to-back and side-to-side, enabling it to withstand impacts and seismic events safely.

“Its horizontal, bolt-together construction handles more capacity with less steel in many instances, while reducing the stress on the slab,” said Rogers. “Plus, the modular design allows for future storage flexibility and lower freight costs.”

TubeRack can be used with all of the company’s storage solutions including: selective, double deep, push back, pallet flow, drive-in, pallet shuttle and AS/RS systems. Because of the range of options and applications, each installation is customized.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
