Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems: Vertical Carousels, Vertical Lifts, and Horizontal Carousels

Kardex Remstar Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems are designed to improve ergonomics, enhance product security, save space, maximize storage density, increase productivity, boost throughput, and improve accuracy (click here to view material handling storage photos). Click here to learn more about automated storage systems.

Vertical Carousels Improve Ergonomics and Enhance Product Security

Vertical Carousels are proven technology for handling parts while providing worker safety and product security. The Vertical Carousels maximize the use of overhead space, recovering up to 75% of the floor space used with traditional shelving systems. Designed using the “goods to person” principle, it has a track record of saving customers thousands of man, hours, which translates into increased productivity. Vertical carousels consist of a series of movable shelves that rotate around a track via the shortest path to deliver selected goods safely and quickly to an ergonomically positioned workstation (click here to see carousel and lift videos).

Vertical Lifts Save Space and Maximize Storage Density

Vertical Lifts are an enclosed system of vertically arranged trays, an extraction platform, and a series of computerized controls that delivers parts to an ergonomically positioned workstation where an operator picks or replenishes the parts. Vertical Lifts locate stored parts and retrieves trays from both the front and back of the unit with a push of a button or a scan of a bar code.
The Vertical Lifts maximize storage density within each unit with cube utilization technology. The height of each tray is measured as the tray is put away and the Vertical Lifts store the tray in the least amount of space required.

Horizontal Carousels Increase Productivity, Boost Throughput, and Improve Picking Accuracy

Horizontal Carousels eliminate unproductive travel and search times using software-controlled picking sequences to deliver stored goods efficiently to the operator. This process speeds up picking times and boosts throughput, which can improve picking accuracy rates to 99%. The Horizontal Carousels consist of an oval track supporting rotating bins with shelves that deliver stored goods to the operator.
