Why Automate Storage & Retrieval with Kardex Remstar Carousels & Lifts

Why Should Your Business Automate Storage & Retrieval?

easily optimize warehouse storage space with kardex remstar liftsYour warehouse floor space is expensive, and the value of it varies depending on the activity occurring in that space. When it’s used for stationary racks and storage rather than production lines or other revenue generating functions, you are losing out on profits. The stationary racks in your storage area mean workers are picking one order at a time, which slows down their picking speed because they are often walking several miles a day. They can also become fatigued and injured due to the constant walking, bending, climbing, and twisting they do while searching for items, which means they can’t do their jobs to the best of their abilities. This can lead to picking mistakes that can cost your company time and cause customers frustration. Kardex Remstar Carousels & Lifts will automate storage & retrieval to eliminate all of these problems so that your business can stop focusing on lost time and money and instead focus on growth and profits.

Titan Industriever Shuttle XP Vertical Storage | Inventory Management

Shuttle XP Vertical Storage System Improves Inventory ManagementTitan Industriever Shuttle XP is an Efficient Vertical Storage System for Inventory Management

The Titan Industriever Shuttle XP is a vertical storage tower that shuttles large parts’ storage trays from as high as 60’ to an ergonomic work counter.  Workers pick parts from the trays using a computerized inventory management software/interface.  Typically, you can have your entire parts inventory stored in one or two Titan Industriever Shuttle XP units, which can reduce your storage area by 85% compared to traditional stationary storage shelving  (watch Titan Industriever Shuttle XP video) .

Parts stored on the vertical storage trays are brought directly to the operator at a waist-high ergonomic work counter, eliminating walking, climbing, and searching for stored parts.  Typically, one person using a Titan Industriever Vertical Storage System can pick as many parts in an hour as three people can pick parts from stationary bin shelving. The Titan Industriever Shuttle also improves employee safety, parts security, and worker morale in picking operations.

Mobile Shelving System | Wire Cage | Police Department Weapon Storage

police department weapon storage area before high density shelvingOrganization and Security with a Mobile Shelving System and Wire Cage for Police Department Weapon Storage

Southwest Solutions Group’s San Antonio team recently completed a project designing and installing a mobile shelving system secured in a wire cage for a south Texas police department’s weapon storage area.plan drawing of the mobile shelving system and wire cage

The mobile shelving system allows the police department to custom organize the way they use their weapon storage area. Before, the mobile shelving system was installed everything was disorganized and stacked in boxes making weapons difficult to see and access. Now, officers can easily turn the mobile shelving crank handle to open an access aisle to retrieve the stored weapons. Guns are stored together in the majority of the mobile shelving system while knives are stored in a separate section and ammunition in another section. Designing the weapon storage area this way and using the mobile shelving system has allowed the police department to organize and maximize the use of their floor space.

wire cage for police department weapon storageThe wire cage secures the weapon storage area using heavy-duty wire panels and sliding doors to control access to the mobile shelving weapon storage area. Also, the wire cage allows for the use of existing lighting, as well as open circulation for air flow and and fire suppression systems.

Here is what the police department had to say about their new mobile shelving weapon storage system,

“The sales representative and installers were extremely professional and helpful. Our mobile shelving system and wire cage were delivered and installed as scheduled. I was very proud to take pictures of our installation and show it off to our administration.  We are very satisfied with the improvements to our police department weapon storage area thanks to the products you have installed.”
