An automated vertical storage system is a contained access system that takes advantage of typically unused vertical storage space in a warehouse. They are the solution for many challenges found in warehouses and shop floors across the world today.
These warehouse storage systems are offered at Vertical Storage USA:
- Vertical Lift Modules are enclosed systems with vertically arranged trays stored on both sides of the unit with an extractor device placed in the center.
- Vertical Storage Carousels are motorized machines that store parts on vertically rotating shelves that automatically deliver the parts to an ergonomic countertop.
- Horizontal Storage Carousels consist of an oval track supporting rotating vertical bins with shelves that deliver stored goods to the operator.
Why choose an automated vertical storage system for your warehouse?
Space is at a premium in warehouses and on shop floors. And because real estate equals money, it makes sense to utilize every cubic foot of space within your facility. Vertical warehouse storage systems help you do that as they optimize previously unused vertical space and effectively increase your storage capacity (while occupying only a small footprint) – creating up to 75% floor savings.
An automated vertical storage system can help employees to quickly locate parts or products without the need to walk endlessly up and down aisles. After inputting the product name, order number or parts list into the control pad or computer interface, the requested materials are delivered to the vertical lift module’s access point. This, along with a verification system, ensures correctly picked orders and minimizes mistakes.
Vertical storage systems deliver materials at a worktable height, which means no bending over, straining for a high shelf, or climbing ladders for retrieval by personnel. All parts are brought to the area between the shoulders and waist for picking. This also means fewer injuries and higher job-satisfaction levels for employees who regularly access the vertical storage system.
An automated vertical storage system can have a lockable door for situations in which materials or parts have a high value and are easily removed from the premises. What’s more, all access to a vertical storage solution can be tracked by date, time and specific employee, so there are no mysteries when it comes to inventory management.
