NSI work closely with Kardex to supply business leading, step changing automated storage systems.
All systems offer the opportunity to maximise the density of your pick face, considerably reducing the footprint and thus increasing labour productivity significantly.
Automated Storage Systems fall into 3 main categories:
Automated Storage Towers / Shuttles – Vertical Storage Towers consist of two stacks of densely packed shelving with a central rapid retrieval crane to present trays to a pick face. Although the Kardex automated storage towers (Shuttles) look a little like a carousel, the concept is quite different. Only the tray required moves, removing all the problems of balancing weights. Speeds are increased and opportunities are created to constantly maximise storage density in real time through the height optimised put-away system.
Vertical Carousels – Although based on older technology than Shuttles, vertical carousels remain a highly cost effective solution of utilising as much height as possible in your small parts storage. Working on the goods to man principal and using fixed apertures, they can reduce the footprint dedicated to storage massively, with all the same security and waist height handling benefits.
Horizontal Carousels – if maximum pick rates per operator are your main driver rather than minimising the footprint, the pick rates achieved by a well-designed horizontal carousel can be amongst the quickest. Horizontal Carousels can also be stacked on top of each other on mezzanines or structural steel to utilise height as well.
