Vertical Carousels & Vertical Carousel Storage Systems
Read below how Vertical Carousel System by Vistamation saves Teledyne EMS $$$$
Carouselsare a general
class of storage machine that utilizes chain and track / linkages that rotate
box structure shelving modules in a vertically. Vertical carousels resemble a
ferris wheel in dynamics; the individual shelving modules are kept horizontal on
their path around the vertical track with use of a paternoster mechanism. This
is, simply stated, the combination of main drive chain path and a secondary
guide track that couples a stabilizing arm to shelving modules. Vertical
in many load carrying capacities, shelf module dimensions and overall height.
Vertical carousels range from office style document storage devices to large
industrial units loaded to many tons with heights of 40 feet and more. Vertical
carousels are suited for consolidating the storage of like sized small parts in
a small footprint. To access stored materials, an operator simply selects a
given pan from the control interface or through the optional application
software. Once selected, the carousel rotates all pans via the shortest route
and presents the requested pan at a convenient working height. Because the
vertical carousel "footprint" occupies a relatively small area, the
cubic utilization is greater than with any other automated storage and retrieval
system. In addition to saving space, the ergonomically designed vertical
carousel dramatically reduces the labor required in picking, because the
operator walk area is greatly reduced and ergonomics are enhanced as bending is
eliminated compared to standard shelving. As a result, operator fatigue is
reduced, errors are decreased, supervision is enhanced and productivity is
Utilization: Vertical carousels maximize utilization of available overhead
space. Customers have saved up to 75% and more of their floor space. Increased
Accuracy: Order and inventory accuracy are greatly enhanced with the use of
vertical carousels. Optional software adds further control. Enhanced
Productivity: White vertical carousels increase productivity by eliminating walk
and search time. Items are delivered to the operator via the shortest route and
can be optimized when working from lists. Improved Security: Inventory is kept
clean, secure and out of sight. Highly Ergonomic: Vertical Carousels eliminate
the climbing, stretching and bending common to walk and search picking methods.
The carousel delivers the product to an ergonomically situated work counter.
Potential for occupational injury claims are reduced while enhancing the work
Tech Vertical Carousel Storage System Part of Teledyne EMS’s $3.5mm Annual
Vistamation is an industrial systems integrator based in Southern California who sells advanced storage systems, starting with basic
shelving up to Carousel AS/RS.
With the move of Teledyne’s microelectronics division from Marina del Rey, Calif., to their 170,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Lewisburg, Tenn., Teledyne is now able to perform the tasks of both locations in Lewisburg.
“We’ve retrofitted 25,000 square feet of our facility to house the microelectronics production,” declares Shane Green, Teledyne EMS vice president and general manager. “Through lean processes and elimination of waste, we were able to consolidate activities in that section of the building and free up that floor space to allow the movement and construction of the microelectronics facility.”
