Megamat RS Vertical Carousels Storing Electrical Components
For years this major manufacturer of molded wire protection products and stamped electrical components has supplied quality products by offering samples to their customers. This commitment requires inventorying over 18,000 product sample SKUs, and with storage capacity at its limit; stocking, managing, picking and shipping product sample orders was becoming a cumbersome and time consuming process. The manufacturer replaced two 20 year old vertical carousels with 2 new 24 foot tall Megamat RS vertical carousels from Kardex Remstar. The previous 20 foot carousels provided 1,792 storage locations. With the newly designed Megamat RS carousels, the 24 foot carousels provide 4,788 storage locations, increasing storage capacity by 167% while maintaining roughly the same space requirements. When a sample order is received from the website, a label is printed for the order. The label indicates the sample requested as well as the shelf or carrier number within the carousel. The operator uses the touch screen Logic controller to rotate the carousel to the desired carrier. The operator picks the sample requested, bags it and tags it with the order label. The operator then completes the shipping paperwork and ships the part. Orders for sample products are being filled in less time and inventory capacity has been increased by 167%.
