The new Hornet Horizontal Carousel from Sapient Automation provides efficient storage and retrieval for small parts, items, and case handling, according to the company.
Horizontal carousels also reduce labor by up to two-thirds by bringing items to the operator and eliminating wasted walking and searching activities, says Sapient. Every carousel is designed using quick adjustable shelves in metal bins which rotate horizontally on a track. This set up provides floor-space savings and works well for areas that have limited ceiling heights or are tiered to maximize high ceilings. A push of a button or scan of a bar code will rotate the carousels to the nose end, where an operator can pick product with the help of an integrated pick-to-light or voice-directed picking solution. The carousel can be designed to fit the level of complexity that the customer needs; anywhere from simple push button or foot switch controls to a full suite of inventory management software, which can be integrated into existing warehouse management systems (WMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
The Hornet Horizontal Carousel's Intelligent Machine Health monitoring system reports each carousel's health to the servicing technician and Sapient Automation's central monitoring center. Proactive servicing helps assure increased system up time, unit longevity, and faster return on investment and is free with every Hornet Horizontal Carousel. Likewise, a full range of carousel bin sizes, lengths, and heights are available.
