New Vertical Carousel from Kardex Remstar Saves Weight and Energy
Improved vertical lift carousel.
Westbrook, ME — The Megamat RS Vertical Carousel from Kardex Remstar has been designed using construction and production techniques that focus on energy-saving and the environment. The result is a new vertical carousel that utilizes up to 40 percent less energy with a 50 percent unit weight reduction.

The Megamat RS is an enclosed system of carriers that rotate around vertically delivering stored goods to the operator increasing productivity and maximizing storage density. As a standalone installation, the unit can be operated using the push button "drive and view" function. For more detailed applications, FastPic5 inventory management software can provide integration with existing WMS software as well as higher level ERP and host systems.

Using customized performance drive motors in coordination with frequency inverters has reduced energy costs during operation. These significant changes have resulted in the updated unit's energy savings. The new design has also achieved a considerable reduction in materials used, resulting in a large weight reduction over the previous model.

Together with the energy efficient and new lightweight design, the highly compressed Megamat RS Vertical Carousel storage unit provides responsible and economic use of resources throughout its life cycle.
