Vertical carousel systems are a popular type of automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) in distribution centers used to increase warehouse operations. These systems consist of a number of shelves or bins that are stacked vertically rotating around a central axis, providing easy access to stored items without the use of ladders or forklifts.

Vertical Carousel Benefits

There are multiple benefits to using a vertical carousel system in a warehouse setting. First and foremost, these systems can significantly increase the storage density of a warehouse, as they utilize the vertical space of a facility in a more efficient manner than regular shelves or pallet racks. This can enable a warehouse to store more items in a smaller floor space, making it particularly beneficial for facilities with limited floor space.

In addition, ASRS vertical carousels can improve the speed and accuracy of item retrieval in a warehouse. Rather than searching for items manually on shelves or racks, workers can simply enter the desired item into the carousel control panel, and the carousel will retrieve the item automatically and present it at an ergonomically designed access point. This significantly reduces the effort and time needed to find and retrieve items, allowing staff to carry out their tasks more quickly and less tiringly.

Another advantage of vertical carousel systems is enhancing safety in a warehouse setting. These systems eliminate the need for workers to climb ladders or use forklifts to access stored items, lowering the risk of accidents and falls. Additionally, the automated nature of the system reduces the risk of human error, as items are retrieved and stored precisely based on the computerized system.

Types of Vertical Carousels

There are several various kinds of vertical carousel systems accessible, each of which is adequate for a different storage need. A few typical kinds of ASRS systems include:

  • Unit load carousels: These systems are engineered to store and retrieve large items, and are often implemented alongside a lift truck or material handling equipment.
  • Case and tote carousels: They are designed to store and retrieve little items such as boxes or totes, and are frequently used alongside a conveyor system or other mechanized handling equipment.
  • Bin carousels: These systems are designed to store and retrieve small items like components, and are commonly configured alongside a pick-to-light system.

No matter the type of vertical carousel system selected, it is important to take into account the individual needs and requirements of the warehouse or distribution center so as to pick the most appropriate system. Factors to think about may include the types of items being stored, the quantity of items in storage, the quantity of available space, and the funding for system construction.
