There are many factors related to the use life of rack such as material,production process,environment,proper operations to use rack will affect the use life of rack.
Q235B steel is the main material for rack industry.but the quality of steel produced by different steel mills is relevant.steel material produced by Angang and Baosteel is more reliable in quality.The raw materials our Sunnyrack selected are all from Baosteel.
The rack made by different quality steel may not be much different in appearance.but it will affect the use life of rack.The better quality of steel,the better tensile strength,impact toughness,hardness,cold brittleness and weldability.
The production process will also affect the use life of rack.There is definitely a big difference between small workshop and powerful factory in terms of quality management.The production process is including Cutting,Punching,Milling,Welding and Surface Treatment.For surface treatment,it also including oil removal,rust removal,pretreatment ,phosphorus,process,passivation,electrostatic spaying,high temperature curing and etc.
Some small workshop will cheat on material or omit some process to save the cost.although no problem in shot time but troubles will come and find you later.
Perfect quality management will ensure the rack work longer and safe.
The environment also affects the use life of rack, a ventilated,dry and clean environment is best for storage goods and longer the use life of rack.
