Vertical carousel systems are a popular type of automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) in warehouses used to improve warehouse operations. These systems feature a series of vertically stacked shelves or bins rotating around an axis in a circular motion, allowing workers to easily access stored items without the use of ladders or forklifts.

Vertical Carousel Benefits

There are multiple advantages to implementing a vertical carousel system in a warehouse setting. First and foremost, these systems can greatly increase the storage density of a warehouse, as they use the vertical height of a warehouse more efficiently than traditional shelving or pallet racks. This allows a warehouse to increase storage capacity in a smaller footprint, which can be especially useful for facilities that have space constraints.

Additionally, ASRS vertical carousels can improve the speed and accuracy of item retrieval in a warehouse. Instead of manually searching for items on shelves or racks, workers can simply enter the desired item into the system's computerized control panel, and the carousel will retrieve the item automatically and present it at an easily accessible point. This greatly reduces the time and effort required to find and retrieve items, enabling workers to complete 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, reducing the risk of falls and other accidents. Additionally, the automated nature of the system reduces the risk of human error, as items are accurately retrieved and stored according to the computerized system.

Types of Vertical Carousels

There are a variety of various kinds of vertical carousel systems obtainable, each of which is appropriate for a varied storage need. Some common types of vertical carousel systems include:

  • Unit load carousels: These systems are intended to retrieve and store large items, and are commonly used in conjunction with a forklift or material handling equipment.
  • Case and tote carousels: They are engineered to retrieve and store smaller items such as boxes or bins, and are often used alongside a conveyor system or other automated handling equipment.
  • Bin carousels: These systems are intended to retrieve and store small items such as parts, and are frequently configured in conjunction with an item selection system.

No matter the type of vertical carousel system chosen, it is important to thoughtfully evaluate the individual needs and requirements of the warehouse or distribution center in order to select the most relevant system. Factors to take into consideration may include the sort of items in storage, the amount of items in storage, the amount of vacant space, and the resources for the system.
