The Ins and Outs of Our Industrial Storage Carousel: The Rotomat
The Rotomat Industrial Carousel
This material handling and storage system is customizable to whatever you may need to store. The Rotomat Industrial Storage Carousel is designed like the “Ferris wheel” concept model. The automated system rotates around making the shortest route to bring an item to the end user. The user no longer has to find the item they are looking for without having to stretch, bend, lean or reach for an item stored otherwise. Therefore, Time is saved. The unit runs smooth and quiet with duel motors on either side of the carousel system. Money is saved. By utilizing room height and the carousel’s compact construction design, over 60% storage capacity is utilized in a small footprint.
Features of the Industrial Storage Carousel
Each industrial vertical carousel is custom built per spec and design. There are no two places with the same exact storage challenges. Each unit is designed to accommodate the size of items stored whether it may be small parts, tools, medical devices, laundry, computer parts, mail or bulk items like motors and gears.
To access the unit, the operator enters location information which may be the row or bin unit. The storage system then quickly delivers the that bin to the opening in the front of the unit. It is a computer numerically controlled system that makes it simple to retrieve the appropriate item. Size and weight both factor into the design of the unit itself.
