WESTBROOK, MAINE: Automated storage and retrieval systems manufacturer Kardex Remstar has released its new Megamat RS vertical carousel. The carousel features an interchangeable carrier design, the company said, allowing supply chain operations to mix, match and change storage configurations. With a standard, multipurpose carrier, users can add partitions, dividers, intermediate shelves, rollout drawers as well as a variety of front lip height and depth clips to customize the unit to meet their storage needs now and in the future.

To change carrier configurations, remove the stored goods from the carrier, add the carrier insert (partitions, dividers, intermediate shelves or rollout drawers) and replace the stored goods. Each carrier comes standard with a 0.3-inch front lip to keep in stored goods, the company said. Carrier depth or height clips can be added, providing a taller or deeper front lip to secure various-size totes or boxes from migrating out. Each carrier also has a partial top to prevent carrier overloading.

Creating a 100-percent customized storage space allows for maximum storage density. The ability to reconfigure the carousel provides flexibility, said Kardex Remstar. As the size and weight of the stored goods change so can the storage configuration.
