From storing small parts to large, heavy tools, Kardex Remstar dynamic storage solutions allow an organization the ability to keep inventory all in one place. The Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Module (VLM) integrated with Power Pick Global inventory management software and Pick-to-Light technology, will be on display at IMTS 2016 in Chicago, IL September 12-17 in booth #W-1617 at McCormick Place.
The Shuttle XP VLM ranges from light duty storage in the 250 model to heavy duty storage in the Shuttle XP 1000 model, boasting a 2,204 lbs. (1000 kg) capacity per tray. The Shuttle XP 1000 can also be integrated with a crane mounted to the load profile. It can be maneuvered into position in front of the access opening to pick up heavy items from the floor or from a pallet.
Integrating dynamic storage into material flow processes can have a positive, quick and direct impact on an organizations profit. Systems are often easily cost justified on improved productivity, recovered floor space and increased pick accuracy.
All Kardex Remstar dynamic storage solutions operate on the “goods to person principle”. By delivering items directly to the operator, travel and search time commonly associated with shelving is drastically reduced. Implementing automated storage can increase productivity up to 2/3. More often, facilities are choosing to maintain current labor levels when implementing dynamic storage solutions to increase productivity – resulting in higher picking capacities without additional labor.
By utilizing the vertical space from floor to ceiling, both vertical storage systems eliminate wasted space commonly found in shelving systems to recover up to 85% floor space. Allowing organizations to create floor space for additional manufacturing or other revenue generating activities can be easily cost justified. 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%.
