The new Megamat RS from Kardex features automated vertical carousels.

These are based on the operating concept of a paternoster and work in line with the goods-to-person principle. They are perfectly suited for goods with a high picking frequency and for frequently accessed similarly sized goods.

Megamat RS models

Tab Navigation

Megamat RS 180

Efficient storage and fast retrieval of lightweight loads

The Megamat RS 180 is best suited for the orderly storage and picking of textiles or small parts in containers. For example, it’s an excellent choice for the hotel industry, medical sectors, vehicle manufacturing, mechanical engineering, and the electronics industry.

Megamat RS 350

Ideal for medium-sized loads

The Megamat RS 350 is the perfect solution for storing and retrieving components, tools, and spare parts. Among the wide range of possible applications, each carrier can manage loads up to 350 kg.

Megamat RS 650

For heavy loads of up to 650 kg per carrier

The Megamat RS 650 works well in a variety of different areas. For instance, it integrates into the production process in several ways – either as an interim storage solution for semi-finished products or as a storage buffer during drying phases.

Safety components

To ensure maximum safety, Kardex equipped the Megamat RS with four impressive features:

Even in the event of a power outage, the emergency hand crank provides access to stored products at all times.

The new chain tensioner significantly reduces the susceptibility of the load chain to wear and tear. The result is a reliable and long-lasting storage system.

The lockable sliding door moves extremely smoothly. It’s operated automatically or manually and can even open with only one hand.  This guarantees it’s easy to use and ensures employees continue working without interruptions.

The innovative clip system allows a simple, fast, and extremely safe panel assembly. The increased system stability guarantees maximum protection both for stored goods and on-site warehouse workers.

Trays

The Megamat RS multipurpose carriers provide efficient, structured storage at the highest level. Optimized for different processes and needs, they are adaptable, upgradeable, and user-friendly.

The maximum storage space per carrier is up to 16 square meters. Depending on the type of unit, the maximum load capacity is 180, 350, or 650 kilograms per carrier. The carrier depth, width, and height are individually configured to the Vertical Carousel Module.

Depending on the application, the carriers individually subdivide using intermediate shelves with support plates or self-supporting intermediate shelves.  Use a combination of drawers, flaps, and dividers as required.

  • Open carrier to provide various storage options

  • Carrier with drawers, separator sets, and intermediate shelves for combining various stored goods

  • Carrier with partitions for easy sorting of stored goods

  • Carrier with self-supported intermediate shelf for storage of large, flat parts
