While on the outside the Vertical Carousel storage system looks very much like a Vertical Lift Module, the inner workings are a bit different. Instead of a lift locating and retrieving your inventory item like it does with a VLM, the Vertical Carousel is a series of trays that rotate, giving the operator access to the inventory items on the shelf or tray at the bottom.
As with the Vertical Lift Module system, the Vertical Carousels also integrate hardware and software in order to provide the operator with an efficient, safe and secure way of accessing inventory items for order fulfillment. Additionally, like the VLM’s, Vertical Carousels also maximize usage of available real estate in your warehouse. The result will be a more compact, organized and safe work environment for you and your employees to benefit from.
Key Benefits of a Vertical Carousel Storage System:
- Increase productivity 2.5 times over traditional, static solutions
- Mitigate risk of employee injury by removing heavy machinery from order picking
- Increase organization of inventory in one, convenient and secure location
- Enhance security with password protected graphical user interface
- Reduce excess labor costs and improve employee happiness
By far the most expensive component of any warehouse is the labor needed for order fulfillment and inventory management. Included in this expense is also the cost for risk mitigation or insurance for those employees operating heavy machinery used in product picking from the warehouse.
Our Vertical Carousels solve both of these critical warehouse issues in one, sleek, ergonomic and secure solution. By not requiring employees to use heavy machinery or awkwardly pick an item from a high shelf you are greatly reducing the risk associated with on the job injury that can result in costly insurance claims or time missed from work by the employee due to injury.
Additionally, Vertical Carousels greatly increase the efficiency of every man hour spent working in the warehouse. By providing a computerized inventory system that tracks and remembers the location of each item you input, your labor efficiency will drastically improve. The operator simply inputs the product number and the correct tray will be rotated to the front and be easily and ergonomically accessible for order fulfillment.
