From storing small parts to large, heavy tools, Kardex Remstar dynamic storage solutions allow manufacturers 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 for the first time at Houstex in Houston, TX February 26-28, 2019 in booth #2341 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
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 VLM can be equipped with the new Access Ready lights. These lights tell the operator when the tray is in place and ready for picking, making operator training fast and efficient.
Integrating dynamic storage into manufacturing 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%.
