No matter what they are storing, all vertical storage solutions focus on three factors – space, safety and efficiency. We’ve found that specific items, from tires to wire to garments, require specific storage, which is why we provide the following units:
Due to the weight and bulkiness, tires present a unique storage challenge – especially in areas with limited space. Car dealers, airports, mass transportation and testing facilities are all good candidates for the Tire Carousel. Now, these facilities can store a large selection of tires at their location in a space saving and ergonomic fashion.
Each Tire Carousel can store up to 352 tires, and various sizes can be accommodated. In addition to taking advantage of seldom-used vertical space, Tire Carousels are also user friendly. With the product to person principal in play, worker safety is increased while physical requirements are decreased. Optional Tire Ramps assist in loading and unloading tires and eliminate manual lifting.
When you are faced with large quantities of spooled product and square footage at a premium, the Wire Carousel stores more in a smaller footprint by accessing overhead space. This wire spool storage system delivers spools right to the work by way of specifically designed wire carrier bays that rotate up and down. Safety and productivity are addressed by utilizing ergonomic storage and retrieval principals.
Inventory can be organized in a central location, and is controlled by carousels that feature wire bays with interchangeable positions. Each wire carrier has three wire bays with seven interchangeable positions per bay. Standard carousels can accommodate spool sizes up to 30 inches in diameter, and the flexible carrier design and configuration allow for easy storage of various SKUs.
The optional Spinner Spool allows for storage of large quantities of small diameter spools (up to 10 inches in diameter), and provides 24 possible position and eight interchangeable rods per spinner. Wire Merchandiser Carts work independently from the carousels and help with materials processing tasks such as cutting, measuring and re-rolling.
This motorized clothing carousel is made to handle a wide array of garments from coats and shirts to pants and gowns. By relying on proven vertical carousel principals, the Garment Carousel makes the best use of space in retail areas and distribution and storage warehouses.
Inventory management is simplified with the optional inventory control solutions, which consist of software, touch-screen controller, barcode scanning and pic-to-zone system. This system can reduce retrieval times and improve picking accuracy, and is ideal for large warehouses that require multiple carousel support, real-time inventory counts and accurate reporting.
For added security and dust protection, each of these units has a full enclosure option to replace mesh guarding with solid paneling on the front and rear. Dual controls are also available. This enables control from either side of the unit by adding a duplicate control center on the left tower of the carousel. The inventory software option can help accurately track and manage inventory across all of the carousels, and features transaction history, product identification, bin management, pick to light support, inventory counts and reporting.
These are some of the many ways that vertical carousels can save space, increase productivity and ensure operator safety. Going up is the perfect way to tap into your vertical space and solve specific storage challenges.
