A horizontal carousel is a system which rotates on an oval track.
Horizontal carousels can save up to 75% of floor space; increase productivity by 2/3, accuracy levels to 99.9%+ levels and throughput up to 750 lines per hour/operator.
They consist of bin type storage in which every bin has shelves and are adjustable to .75" and can be configured for a many standard and special applications.
An operator simply inputs a bin number, part number or cell location and the carousel will rotate via the shortest path. Multiple horizontal carousels integrated with pick to light technology and inventory management software (a pod of carousels) are used for order fulfilment.
Horizontal carousel systems generally outperform robotic systems for a fraction of the cost. On a simplistic level, horizontal carousels are also often used as "rotating shelving." 'With simple "fetch" command items are brought to the operator and otherwise wasted space is eliminated.
