In keeping with this year’s motto “Being Innovative – Shaping Change,” Kardex Remstar will be presenting the Vertical Buffer Module storage system innovation on its stand (1H51 in hall 1). This newly designed solution is meeting the trend for progressive automation and individualization in industry and logistics.
With practical applications on the stand, Kardex Remstar will demonstrate how companies with a wide range of products can benefit from the new storage and retrieval solution. Among other things, there will be a clear demonstration of how the system ensures the efficient just-in-time supply of production areas with components and assembly sets. “The new Vertical Buffer Module storage system generation is our response to the manufacturing industry’s call for intelligent material flow automation, greater flexibility, and better management of a wide range of products,” explains Reinhold Schäffler, product manager at Kardex Remstar.
The Vertical Buffer Module is a solution for picking small parts from bins, cardboard boxes, and trays. It represents a fundamental new development from Kardex Remstar and consists of a shelf system with automatic bin handling, picking stations that can be adapted in any number of ways, and special logistics software. Compared to commonly available storage systems, such as a mini-load system, the investment costs, order picking performance, and energy efficiency of the Vertical Buffer Module make it especially appealing. The first unit in the series, the LR 35, was launched on the market at the beginning of 2016.
