Kardex Remstar has developed its portfolio for optimized storage and management of tools. There are now even more ways of ensuring safe, space-saving storage of tools in the Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Module (VLM) so they are readily available at all times. With better storage management of these tools, companies in the automotive and manufacturing industries can organize their processes more efficiently and increase productivity.

Various tool racks made of plastic, metal or wood are now available, allowing optimal use to be made of the space inside the Shuttle XP, both in terms of depth and height. The range includes plastic boxes for compartmentalizing trays, tool racks with adjustable holders and special divider systems.

At manufacturing companies, tools are often stored in various types of boxes kept in various tool cabinets located throughout the production floor. Reforming, chipping and milling tools for tooling machines have to be stored in a way that allows efficient set up and retooling within the manufacturing process. The Shuttle XP from Kardex Remstar represents a central solution in which tools of differing sizes, weights and geometries can be stored nearby the tooling machine or in a central tool store. The VLM offers protection from dust, dirt and damage. Access protection is possible for high-quality tools. The goods to person principle saves employees from having to walk and search for tools needed and reduces picking time by at least 50%.

Kardex Remstar’s Power Pick Global (PPG) software has all the basic functions found in warehouse management software. It can set up the storage structure, manage storage and retrieval tasks, perform inventory management in real time and also handle tool management functions. Interfaces are available for linking the system to existing tool management software. The number of incorrectly picked items is reduced to virtually zero with the help of information displays.

The Shuttle XP keeps tools organized in a compact footprint. Fast and easy access to stored tools reduces operator walk and search time, increasing productivity. With the new range of products, Kardex Remstar wishes to further enhance its expertise in the area of tool storage.
