Automated Storage Carousels
Instead of storing inventory and supplies on static shelving or mezzanine floors, these systems consist of a series of containers or shelves mounted to a vertical track inside a large cabinet. The carousel bins then rotate to bring the requested item to the user.
Automated storage carousels create additional storage space by clearing up the space in a warehouse or healthcare facility traditionally used by static shelving—and in making inventory control and supply management mechanized, there are many other benefits as well:
- Increased Storage Density: Vertical carousels can save up to 70% of valuable floor space
- Enhanced Productivity: By providing accessibility and visibility to all items being stored, less time is spent by employees tracking down inventory
- Safety Considerations: The carousels decrease dependence on forklifts and ladders, and provide an ergonomic environment for employees
- Increased Security: Inventory, parts, supplies, and more are in a secure system and out of sight—ideal for high-cost and valuable items
Quick Assess: System allows for a relatively large inventory of goods to be quickly accessible to a picking station while being stored safely and securely in the interim
