Vertical Carousels are rotating shelves that move up or down on response to your commands, delivering items at an ergonomic and convenient access window. Carousels operate with rotating shelves and a chain-driven carriage to deliver loads to operators for faster picking, packing or assembly. You can also choose vertical lift modules for a more configurable option.
Since these carousels deliver materials directly to operators, they minimize walking, climbing, bending, searching, or reaching for inventory. These systems utilize a pass-through design that eliminates time consuming transport of items from floor to floor. Point-of-use design keeps parts closer to the operation, eliminates trips to cribs or stock rooms, since a space-saving carousel can be placed much closer to production areas or pick modules. Dual-access options are available for versatile multi-operator use, both front and rear or on multiple floors. This provides a tremendous amount of flexibility.
Product protection is also a factor with vertical carousels, which enclose your load in a dust cover protection panel system that minimizes dust and particulates in product storage. This reduces housekeeping and plant maintenance burdens.
Because of its minimal footprint, a vertical carousel provides the same amount of storage space as multiple rows of traditional shelving or modular drawers or carton flow racks, for that matter. In this scenario, a standard vertical system saves over 1,400 square feet of expensive floor space for other uses. And you also get the automation, security, and accuracy/throughput increases along with that extra space.
