Remstar releases Consolidation Carousel
Consolidation Carousel system consists of specially designed horizontal carousels, put-to-light technology and control software. Items picked from multiple work zones are conveyed to the consolidation carousel work zone. The software automatically designates specific cell locations in a bin for the completed order. The carousels put lights indicate to operators where to place each portion of a specific order. When the last tote or container from one of the pick zones hits the consolidation workstation, the put lights automatically blink telling the operator that the order is ready to ship.
Consolidation Carousel is a system of carriers that rotate on an oval track. The high-density design of these systems uses up to 350% less floor space than conventional conveyor, cross belt or tilt tray consolidation systems and costs up to 50% less. The system has the capacity to handle up to 300% more open orders since the system doesnt require any dedicated pick lanes and recirculation capabilities. Likewise, the consolidation carousel system requires up to 80% less labor since one operator is maximized by using a work station of two carousels simultaneously.
