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

Vertical Carousel Benefits

There are a number of benefits to using an ASRS vertical carousel in a warehouse setting. First and foremost, these systems can greatly improve warehouse storage density, as they use the vertical height of a facility in a more efficient manner than regular shelves or pallet racks. This allows a warehouse to increase storage capacity in a smaller floor space, which can be especially useful for facilities with limited floor space.

Additionally, vertical carousel systems can improve the accuracy and speed 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 system's computerized control panel, and the carousel will automatically retrieve the item 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 more quickly and with less fatigue.

Another advantage of vertical carousel systems is improving 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 decreases the chance of human error, as items are retrieved and stored precisely based on the computerized system.

Types of Vertical Carousels

There are a variety of various kinds of ASRS systems obtainable, all of which are suitable for a diverse storage need. A few typical kinds of ASRS systems include:

  • Unit load carousels: These systems are engineered to retrieve and store large items, and are commonly implemented alongside a lift truck or material handling equipment.
  • Case and tote carousels: These systems are intended to store and retrieve little items such as containers or totes, and are commonly implemented alongside a conveyor system or other mechanized handling equipment.
  • Bin carousels: These systems are intended to retrieve and store little items including parts, and are often implemented in conjunction with an order picking system.

Irrespective of the type of vertical carousel system chosen, it is important to carefully consider the specific needs and requirements of the warehouse or distribution center so as to pick the most appropriate system. Factors to take into consideration may comprise the kinds of items being stored, the amount of items in storage, the amount of vacant space, and the resources for the system.
