Vertical carousel systems are a popular type of automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) in distribution centers used to improve productivity and efficiency. These systems feature a series of vertically stacked shelves or bins rotating around an axis in a circular motion, providing easy access to stored items without the use of ladders or forklifts.

Vertical Carousel Benefits

There are several benefits to installing a vertical carousel system in a warehouse setting. Firstly, these systems can greatly increase the storage density of a warehouse, as they utilize the vertical space of a facility in a more efficient manner than traditional shelving or pallet racks. This can enable a warehouse to increase storage capacity in a smaller footprint, making it particularly beneficial for facilities with limited floor space.

In addition, ASRS vertical carousels can improve the accuracy and speed of retrieving items in a warehouse. Rather than searching for items manually on shelves or racks, workers can simply input the item they need into the system's computerized control panel, and the carousel will retrieve the item automatically and present it at an ergonomically designed access point. This greatly reduces the time and effort required to find and retrieve items, enabling workers to carry out their tasks with greater speed and efficiency.

Another benefit of vertical carousel systems is improving safety in a warehouse setting. These systems remove the need for staff to climb ladders or use forklifts to reach stored items, lowering the risk of accidents and falls. Additionally, the automation of the system decreases the chance of human error, as items are accurately retrieved and stored according to the computerized system.

Types of Vertical Carousels

There are a variety of different types of ASRS systems available, each of which is adequate for a different storage need. Several usual kinds of vertical carousel systems include:

  • Unit load carousels: They are engineered to store and retrieve large items, and are commonly used in conjunction with a lift truck or lifting equipment.
  • Case and tote carousels: They are intended to store and retrieve little items such as containers or totes, and are often used alongside a transport system or other automated handling equipment.
  • Bin carousels: They are designed to retrieve and store little items such as parts, and are commonly implemented in conjunction with a pick-to-light system.

Irrespective of the type of vertical carousel system selected, it is important to take into account the specific requirements and needs of the warehouse or distribution center so as to pick the most appropriate system. Factors to consider may include the kinds of items being stored, the amount of items in storage, the amount of available space, and the budget for system construction.
