Kardex Remstar has extended the weight capacity of its Shuttle Vertical Lift Module for operations looking to increase productivity, reduce floor space and increase profit.
The newest generation of the Shuttle VLM product line is the Shuttle XP 1000 model. The Shuttle VLM series ranges from light duty storage in the 250 model to heavy duty storage in the new Shuttle XP 1000 model, boasting a 2,204 lbs. (1000 kg) capacity per tray.
Operating on the 'goods to person principle', Kardex Remstar solutions are designed to bring the parts to the worker increasing worker efficiency and picking productivity. Eliminating wasted walk and search time commonly associated with manual picking and distribution, dynamic storage systems can increase productivity up to 2/3 and reduce labor requirements.
More often, facilities are choosing to maintain current labor levels when implementing automated storage to increase picking productivity -- resulting in even higher picking capacities without additional labor.
A compact, floor to ceiling solution, the Shuttle VLM eliminates wasted space commonly found in traditional shelving and rack systems to recover up to 85 percent floor space. This allows organizations to store more product in less floor space, creating space for organizations to expand other revenue generating activities.
All Kardex Remstar solutions can be integrated with inventory management software to increase efficiencies and provide greater inventory control. Equipped with pick-to-light technology, a TIC (transaction information center) is mounted at the access opening to direct the operator to the exact location to pick from, displaying the part number and quantity to pick, increasing accuracy to 99.9 percent.
