Kardex Remstar Horizontal Carousels
A Horizontal Carousel makes optimal use of the existing room length. The central access opening positioned at the front of the Horizontal Carousel and the arrangement of the machines in so-called picking stations give the picker fast access to the stored goods on a minimal footprint. This reduces the travel time usually necessary for personnel working on a conventional shelf storage system.
Another advantage: all Horizontal Carousels belonging to one picking station work simultaneously. This guarantees permanent access to goods and reduces unproductive staff waiting times to a minimum.
Efficient order picking is made possible by linking a Horizontal Carousel with warehouse management software (e.g. Kardex Remstar Power Pick Global) and using various optical display elements. Picking performance can be improved even further if picking strategies such as “batch picking” are applied.
