From small independently operated units to large fully integrated units, Kardex Remstar has a solution for every application," says Colman Roche, VP of Sales.

Transport rollers allow the unit to be easily relocated within the facility.
Using CubeStar® technology; when a tray is stored, the Element VLM scans the height of the items on the tray and stores the tray in the least amount of space required. This ensures maximum storage density and allows facilities to change the height of the stored product, up to 18 inches maximum, at any time without reconfiguring the unit.
