The Schaefer Carousel System (SCS) offers automated piece picking at 1,000 picks per hour. With a compact, modular system design, the SCS provides customers with a dynamic, goods-to-person order-picking system.
In its standard version, the SCS module consists of four carousels with up to 6,000 bin locations, from which up to four workstations can optionally be supplied. When the user experiences an increase in capacity requirements, order volume, or throughput (or simply needs a larger size bin), the modular Schaefer Carousel System can easily be adapted by installing further modules. The SCS standard bins can also be partitioned into a maximum of 16 different compartments.
The SCS combines the advantages of compact carousel systems and those of conventional storage and retrieval machines. Fully automated lifts with load carrying devices retrieve the storage bins from their storage locations in four aisles and transfer them to the integrated conveyor system of the carousel system, which takes the bins to the order-picking positions. These lifts use only 20 percent of the power demand of conventional small-parts storage systems.
