MiniPat Vertical Carousel
Carriers (shelves) are connected to transport chains that rotate the entire stored inventory around inside a steel clad casing in either direction working on the shortest routing principle to deliver the requested items at an ergonomic height to the operator.
The carriers are presented at the access port in front of the operator at a picking / placing height, usually 900mm, depending on the pitch of the carriers.
Intermediate carrier levels can be installed at any time to cater for small parts in bins etc. Multiple levels can be configured to meet the desired volume criteria.
The picking port working area is illuminated by directional low voltage LED
Modula Vertical Lift
Modula Lifts are based on the vertical storage principle, but do not rotate, a central automated extractor travels up and down in between the front and rear frames, selects the appropriate tray and delivers it to the picking bay.
Modula Lift is a PLC controlled storage and retrieval system. The machines flexibility makes it ideal for storing goods with different dimensions, from small items to goods up to 695mm high, in one single unit, improving productivity, accuracy and access speeds leading to reductions operating costs.
The system is fitted with an automatic height optimisation system designed to store variable product heights, the entry area has a measuring gate of photoelectric cells that recognise, and accepts, the products entering the machine and selects the storage position relevant for the goods height.
Schwab Tower Heavy Duty Lift
Schwab Tower is a vertical Lift capable of storing a wide variety of products such as steel or aluminium sheet and profiles, tooling, jigs, large, heavy and "ugly" parts etc. The Tower cassette can support a load of up to 5,000Kg each with variable size possibilities up to 12,000mm wide by 2,000mm depth with machine heights up to 16 metres.
The Tower crane can also be designed to travel laterally where such a configuration makes better use of the available floor space.
Unlike conventional vertical lift systems a Tower can also be configured in a multi stack version.
This has the benefit of accommodating a larger number of trays where required whilst still operating with one lift mechanism.
Schwab Multi-loop Paternosters
Steel carriers are connected to transport chains that rotate the entire complement of carriers around inside a framework in either direction working on the shortest routing path principle.
The required carrier is presented at the access port in front of the operator at an ergonomic working height.
Goods presentation can be brought forward of the framework to a loading nose arrangement allowing free access for manual picking or by Fork Lift Truck, Overhead Crane etc.
Products can be delivered to the front, rear or both, mezzanine floor and basement levels or in any combination of these.
Designed and manufactured in the UK. Bays of shelving are connected to transport chains that rotate the entire complement of bays around inside a protective enclosure in either direction working on the shortest routing principle.
Expensive support structures are eliminated as the machine runs directly on the floor, steel plates are fitted under the running wheels if the floor is uneven or pitted or the carousel is installed on a mezzanine floor to spread the load and to achieve smooth and quiet running.
Ideal for use in low headroom or where the products are too bulky for vertical systems, products in bulk or for fast retrieval requirements.
Aids to greater efficiency
Being able to make the most efficient use of your space is only part of the solution to effective stock handling. It is also vitally important that you are able to locate and retrieve stock in a timely manner.
Additional equipment such as barcode readers and printers can greatly simplify the identification of stock to prevent miss-picks and similar errors. But this is only part of the solution...
Even greater savings can be made by using 'Batch Picking' where a number of orders are satisfied in parallel guided by 'Put to Light' indicators against the receiving bins.
Other Storage Systems
As part of our overall product portfolio and to provide our clients with the complete solution (new stores or warehouses will rarely use only automated storage) we also provide a comprehensive range of conventional storage and handling systems to complete the full requirement.
We can provide pallet racking to suit any application, from wide aisle, narrow aisle to mobiles, the right systems are chosen to meet storage and space criteria.
It's all supplied and installed to the latest standards to ensure that your staff and stock enjoy a happy and safe coexistence.
While it's important to know where your stock is, it's just as important to know where there is space for more and how many you've actually got. Couple that with the intelligence to be able to calculate the best picking route for, conveyors, operators and lift trucks and you get a really efficient warehouse.
Order tracking, inventory management and reports, FIFO, batch traceability and much more can be provided.
Other enhancements include barcode readers and printers together with weigh-scales for speedy counting of small items.
Our software can be linked to your own MPR / ERP system to provide company wide advantages.
