Kardex Remstar introduces the new Megamat RS Vertical Carousel. The Megamat RS represents the fusion of reliability and security in a new generation of vertical carousel technology, the manufacturer says. The carousel features reduced operating costs, an improved structure with interchangeable carriers, and multiple control options, while maintaining the key objectives of vertical carousel technology saving organizations time, space, and money.
The Megamat RS offers reduced lifecycle costs when compared to other vertical carousel models. Through the combination of drive motor, high-efficiency transmission, and precision calibrated frequency converter, the Kardex Remstar Megamat RS vertical carousel requires 40 percent less energy. An improved modular structure and the use of efficient components also give the new carousel a 50-percent reduction in overall unit weight. Further, an automatic chain tensioning system reduces stretching as well as wear and tear on the load chain, resulting in a more reliable system that requires less maintenance.
The Megamat RS vertical carousel can be easily reconfigured after installation to meet an operation's changing needs. Its split end panel design allows users to add or subtract height with minimal downtime. An interchangeable carrier design allows organizations to simply insert the desired drawers or shelves into an existing carrier, changing carrier configurations without replacing the entire carrier.
The C3000 control system comes standard and offers a drive and view feature that allows the unit to run without a warehouse management system. Operators can simply push a button to drive the unit and view the contents stored as it rotates past the pick window, making storing and retrieving items quick and simple. For operations requiring inventory control, the Megamat RS vertical carousel can be driven by FastPic inventory management software.
