Vertical Storage-Retrieval Order Picking System For Items on Metal Trays

 
  • Free-up valuable floor space. Control inventory with fewer operators. No time wasted in walking-searching for items.
  • Economical solution when budgets for storage systems, inventory management are shrinking.
  • Multi-column vertical high-density storage. High throughput picking. Rapid return of investment.
  • Swift, energy saving, noiseless, orderly, space-saving storage and picking of various sizes of products.
  • Protects goods against dust, damage, helps track inventory, avoid unauthorized access for valuable or sensitive items.
  • Helps organized storage of inventory saving time, maximizing storage, reducing costs, improving workflow.
  • Eliminates unprofitable walking and searching time with “goods-to-person” principle
  • Reduces personnel costs, New personnel may be incorporated swiftly and easily.
  • Options of varied columns. Varied trays sizes. Varied payloads 100, 250, 500, 1000 kgs.
  • System widths 5 m up to 9m. heights 12m upto 36m.Scalable even after installation as needs change.
  • Choice of system length (columns), trays sizes, payloads help slotting small-medium sized items together.
  • Items can be stored in trays open or in bins-boxes. Easily configurable partitions-dividers help store large quantities of small items, large product mixes.
  • Allows slotting of fast movers, batch picking, route picking.
  • Items remain clean and in order. Allows easy paperless order handling. Fast return on invest (ROI).
  • When goods first stored on empty trays (decanting) bins and boxes containing inventory items scanned with bar code scanner.
  • Each storage location labeled with item part no. description, quantity, unit weight, batch no. for quick easy recognition when picking.
  • Camera takes photos of tray after every put operation. Photos helps identify items faster, track inventory changes and condition of goods.
  • Height sensors measures inventory items heights. Allots storage position in racks having slots at 25 mm pitch.
  • Helps maximum storage with minimal gaps between trays. Best use of vertical air space.
  • Each tray weighed at access point when picking over. Operator asked to confirm items remaining balance. Helps track usage.
  • Windows based control with graphical user interface with touch pane, can be easily linked with WMS or ERP.
  • Hardware and software are integrated in the system, no need for additional pc with complex software.
  • Controls with ethernet interface allows data access across network, supply chains, varied geographical locations.
  • Vertical lift and extractor device stores-extracts goods on metal trays from racks in front and rear.
  • 3-axis Travel. Very high speeds- vertical 1 m/s, horizontal 1 m/s, tray storage retrieval speed 0.5 m/s.
  • Simultaneous fast vertical-horizontal motion speeds, high tray exchange speed helps access goods faster, reduces waiting times.
  • Roller chains are durable, no fatigue failures. Long life cycle. No replacement at service intervals necessary.
  • Best use of vertical-horizontal space. Faster ROI with low price/m3. Faster access to goods means faster order executions.
  • Efficient energy recovery with very low power consumption. Frequency converter help slow start-stop.
  • Rear safety doors, light barriers in front are inter-locked. Operators can pick or put goods only when doors closed.
  • Rear safety doors protect stored goods against dirt-damage-unauthorized access. Opens only to feed trays in-out.
  • Single tower can be accessed on multiple floors allowing multiple operators use system simultaneously.
  • Multi-column vertical high-density storage. High throughput picking. Rapid return of investment.
  • Multi-Storey installations can have up to 6 accesses on front or rear, flexibility to change locations later.
  • Helps supply parts across several floors without need of trolleys-lifts-VRC.
  • Once product/bar code entered, system brings required tray to operator at ergonomic height for picking.
  • Two windows side-by-side speeds-up order picking by avoiding need to wait for next tray as in conventional VLMs
  • Access at 800 mm helps picking ergonomically and speedily, Automation reduces pick errors, reduces chances of returns.
  • Capacity can be doubled by integrating two standard systems into one device housing.
  • Simultaneous operation possible on each floor with loading at one level and retrieval at other.
  • One system can replace several traditional single-columned VLM- vertical storage towers.
  • Helps manage high value SKU’s with short lift cycles. Faster execution of more orders with more varieties-small quantities per order. Managing exchanges and returns efficiently.
  • It protects the user. Weighs. Take photos to help identify-track stored items. Speeds up picking. Saves space.
  • Suited to store small parts, semi-finished, finished products in production, distribution, retail and warehouses.
  • JIT supply of parts or sub-assemblies at right time, right location, right quantity to support related production.
  • Used for buffer storage in production-assembly lines, in-plant storage of parts-spares, B-2-B and B-2-C Distribution, pharma distribution.
  • Automates, tracks every activity of storing-picking of small–medium sized items from receiving, manufacturing, staging, shipping.
  • Each tray programmable for FIFO-LIFO storage, product expiry dates, batch details, item counter, tray number.
  • Re-location and adaptation to new space height-width easy, easy to add remove modules.
  • Helps inventory count, weight, tracks-traces consumption to control inventory, avoid stock-outs. Fully traceable and monitored transactions reduce consumption.
  • Improves picking rates, operator comfort by delivering goods at ergonomic height in safe secure manner.
  • Reduces travel-search times by > 70 %, footprint by > 90%, Increases productivity by up to 7 times.
  • (put 15-21s first, then 0-14 sec) Optional Integrated lifting devices, cranes, grippers.
  • Optional Integration with ERP, RFID/ Bar code scanners, label printers, Pick-To-Light devices, AGVs, Conveyors.
  • Optional Telescopic access- tray motion outwards helps when using lifting devices, transport carts.
  • Optional Specialty holders to store tools, dies, fixtures, arbors, bars, rollers, sheet material, boards, SMD reels, hanging garments, rolls, sleeve rolls, drawing prints.
  • Optional Controlled temperatures heated up to +60 °C / frozen up to –25 °C, connection with cleanrooms EN-ISO 5 to 8.
  • Optional Earth-quake proof and/or rack-clad structure for external installation with telescopic access inside.
  • Optional Residue-free fire extinguishing system with early detection for damage-free goods!
