Remstar Kardex Horizontal Storage Carousels are automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) that save valuable floor space and increase personnel pick rates (View Material Handling LEAN Storage Image Gallery). Horizontal Storage Carousels consists of shelving units mounted on a track that rotates horizontally bringing inventory items to the operator. Having items brought directly to the operator eliminates time consuming walking up and down aisles to retrieve and store inventory items. Horizontal Storage Carousels can be placed adjacent to one another creating a “storage pod” to allow an operator to pick from one carousel while the others are rotating to the next pick position. Integrated Quick Pick pick-to-light technologies indicate the carousel, shelf level, and quantity of items to pick, making batch picking simple, fast and easy.
