Vertical carousel systems are a popular type of automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) in warehouses implemented to increase productivity and efficiency. These carousels consist of a series of vertically stacked shelves or bins rotating around an axis in a circular motion, allowing workers to easily access stored items without requiring the use of ladders or forklifts.

Vertical Carousel Benefits

There are multiple advantages to implementing an ASRS vertical carousel in a warehouse setting. Firstly, these systems can greatly improve warehouse storage density, as they use the vertical height of a facility more efficiently than traditional shelving or pallet racks. This can enable a warehouse to store more items 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. Instead of manually searching for items on shelves or racks, workers can simply enter the desired item into the carousel control panel, and the carousel will automatically retrieve the item and present it at an easily accessible point. This greatly reduces the effort and time needed to find and retrieve items, allowing staff to carry out their tasks with greater speed and efficiency.

Another positive feature 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, reducing the risk of falls and other accidents. 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 multiple various kinds of vertical carousel systems obtainable, each of which is suitable for a different storage need. Several usual kinds of vertical carousel systems include:

  • Unit load carousels: These systems are engineered to retrieve and store pallets, and are often configured alongside a forklift or lifting equipment.
  • Case and tote carousels: These systems are engineered to store and retrieve little items such as containers or bins, and are often implemented in conjunction with a conveyor system or other automated handling equipment.
  • Bin carousels: They are engineered to store and retrieve small items like parts, and are commonly implemented alongside an item selection system.

Irrespective of the type of vertical carousel system chosen, it is important to thoughtfully evaluate the specific needs and requirements of the warehouse or distribution center so as to pick the most appropriate system. Factors to consider may include the types of items in storage, the quantity of items in storage, the amount of usable space, and the budget for system construction.
