Increase Profits with NEW Kardex Remstar Dynamic Storage Solutions
Press release date: May 14, 2014
Integrating dynamic storage into material flow processes can have a positive quick and direct impact on an organizations profit. Systems are often easily cost justified on improved productivity, recovered floor space and increased pick accuracy.
There is a new addition to the Shuttle XP VLM series. Now, the Shuttle XP VLM ranges from light duty storage in the 250 model to heavy duty storage in the NEW Shuttle XP 1000 model, boasting a 2,204 lbs. (1000 kg) capacity per tray.
All Kardex Remstar dynamic storage solutions operate on the “goods to person principle”. By delivering items directly to the operator, travel and search time commonly associated with shelving is drastically reduced. Implementing automated storage can increase productivity up to 2/3. More often, facilities are choosing to maintain current labor levels when implementing dynamic storage solutions to increase productivity – resulting in higher picking capacities without additional labor.
In addition, the Megamat RS Vertical Carousel spans a variety of applications with the 180 series, the 350 series and the 650 series storing light, medium and heavy duty loads, respectively. The newest model in the Megamat RS series, the Megamat RS 650, has a weight capacity of 1,433 pounds per carrier (41,887 pounds per unit), features interchangeable carriers and multiple control options.
By utilizing the vertical space from floor to ceiling, both vertical storage systems eliminate wasted space commonly found in shelving systems to recover up to 85% floor space. Allowing organizations to create floor space for additional manufacturing or other revenue generating activities can be easily cost justified. Equipped with pick-to-light technology, a TIC (transaction information center) is mounted at the access opening to direct the operator to the exact location to pick from displaying the part number and quantity to pick, increasing accuracy to 99.9%.
