Southwest Solutions Group works directly with premier leaders in vertical carousel systems and automated vertical storage solutions.
Automated industrial vertical carousels are one of the most efficient storage systems available for industrial and commercial applications. Vertical carousels make use of overhead distribution center and factory space that would otherwise go to waste, allowing users to maximize storage density and efficiency. Items are brought to the user automatically at the touch of a button or scan of a barcode, increasing efficiency and productivity with reduced errors.
Based on the Ferris wheel principle, vertical carousels store inventory on a series of carriers that remain level while rotating within the machine, much like the seats of a Ferris wheel. These carriers can be equipped with shelves, drawers, totes, dividers, and specialized racks to store all manner of industrial inventory including; small parts, tools, subassemblies, fasteners, electronic components, molds, chemicals, and more.
The industrial vertical carousel is commonly used in the warehouse, factory floor, machine shop, distribution center, tool room, parts department, assembly cell…any place that relies on getting the right part quickly and accurately. The carousel is the storage system favored when inventory is of a consistent size over time.
Advantages of Industrial Carousels:
1. Significant Space Savings
Storing vertically saves floor space and provides up to 60% more storage capacity, allowing users to either store more inventory in the same amount of space or free up floor space for other, more profitable uses.
2. Streamline Inventory Control
Microprocessor-based controllers and advanced inventory management software will give better control over inventory for improved accuracy, fewer errors, and lower costs.
3. Improved Employee Productivity
Items are brought to the user, eliminating the time spent walking rows of shelving to locate and retrieve items, for greater speed and accuracy.
4. Increase Ergonomics
No more bending, ladder-climbing or walking long distances to search for and store parts or articles. The required items are brought automatically to the optimum ergonomic retrieval height.
5. Enhanced Security
Enclosed storage protects and secures inventory. Locking doors and user authorization requirements prevent unauthorized access.
