Optimizing Storage and Retrieval in Cleanrooms
Is the room you need storage in dry, air-conditioned, clean – or all at the same time? Is it a room within room or freestanding? That’s no problem with automated storage solutions from Kardex Remstar. Automated carousel and shuttle solutions will store your products in temperature controlled environments in less space and with more accessibility. Also, the automated storage systems can be positioned as required without any structural restrictions and can even be attached to existing cleanrooms where the only access opening is located in the cleanroom.
How Automated Storage Solutions Work to Save Space & Improve Access
Traditional storage methods use rows of shelving and racks. Employees walk within the rows to access items stored on the shelves. Automated storage carousels and shuttles are completely contained machines, with items stored on trays inside. The machines store everything from large and small items on trays and can even calculate the amount of cubic space needed to maximize storage. And the automated storage solutions accomplish all of this in 50-85% less floor space.
The automated storage solutions operate on the goods to person principle. Instead of employees walking around searching for stored items, the machines deliver the items directly to the operator. This saves time and make accessing stored items more accurate and easier.
