The Megamat RS Vertical Carousel allows multiple departments or work zones to maximize material handling capabilities by consolidating all materials into one system using multiple pick windows. Consolidating inventory into one system with access on multiple floors or zones eliminates wasted time transporting and searching for material; increasing productivity, enhancing material flow, and reducing overall costs. Further, the ability to add an additional pick window post installation provides organizations the flexibility to change.
A dual access Megamat RS Vertical Carousel consists of two or more access points on one unit, allowing access to the same stored materials from multiple access points in the facility. With an access window on the first level and the fifth level, for example, multiple floors, departments or work zones have access to the same material without having to travel from floor to floor, reducing travel time and increasing worker productivity.
Multiple access openings can be created on the same level as well. For example, a pick window on the front of the unit can be used for picking and a pick window on the back of the unit can be used for replenishment. This allows the material to flow into the unit from a receiving department and out of the unit to a stockroom. This allows for picking and replenishment while reducing over handling and traveling between departments.
Increased productivity and improved material flow leads to a reduction in overall costs. Brining the materials directly to the department or work zone eliminates worker travel time to retrieve or store the materials, providing more time for value added activities.
