The Automated Horizontal Carrousel is an outstanding solution for handling small parts along with medium to slow-moving products. These include pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, electronics components, media, food or any other kind of small parts.

Modular and intelligent system solutions for dynamic order picking processes with a very high performance level and maximum economic efficiency. The system design combines the benefits of a compact carousel systems with an innovative further development of conventional storage and retrieval systems.

Each system module is essentially an automated system based on movements that rotate the products (in containers) around in horizontal direction. The available containers can be divided into 8 different compartments. The containers also have a capacity of up to 25 kilograms. The storage locations are accessed by fully automated lifts with load handling devices.

During all that operations- vertical and horizontal conveyor paths transport the containers to the storage locations in the four aisles and transfer them to the circulation-system’s integrated conveyor loop. This loop moves the containers to the picking locations. The resulting decoupling of the movements doubles the performance of the lift up alone in comparison to conventional intralogistics systems. In addition, re-supply procedures can be integrated seamlessly into the picking process without diminishing performance.

Major feature is the scalable design- In case of increased capacity requirements and order volumes, changed ABC distribution or higher performance rates, the modular SCS can easily be adapted by adding further modules or individual aisles.

The most important for nowadays operations is the Error-Free Picking- The patented ergonomic design of the workstation, equipped with light guidance for picking and placing paired with drop control sensors, provide a clear operator guidance where each picking operation is guided, checked and confirmed, guaranteeing continuous high throughput rates and virtually error-free processes.

 

APPLICATIONS IN LOGISTICS AND WAREHOUSE PROCESSING:

  • HIGHLY DYNAMIC PICKING PROCESSES

1,000 picks per hour, 50% storage density increase, and the combination of a high-performance conveying system and state-of-art control technologies facilitates up to 1,000 storage and retrieval operations per hour;

  • HIGHLY EFFICIENT COMMISSIONING

The decoupled movements achieved in this way allow to double the number of storage and retrieval cycles when compared to other conventional systems. Replenishment processes can be perfectly integrated into order picking operations without any loss in efficiency

  • FAST GROWING COMPANIES SEARCHING FOR FAST ROI

Thanks to it's scalable and modular design, The Automated Horizontal Carousel System has a short production time. It's easy to adapt to individual requirements and will be immediately ready for operation. These features ensure short implementation times, minimal business disruption and a lasting investment protection.
