Integrating a Modula horizontal warehouse carousel can enhance your storage.
Southwest Warehouse Solutions is proud to partner with Modula to provide our customers with superior horizontal carousel storage systems. In any warehouse or material handling environment, maximizing storage capacity, increasing productivity, and eliminating errors in order fulfillment are essential tasks. However, these become challenging in low-ceiling environments—you can’t install a vertical carousel or vertical lift module to capitalize on unused vertical space.
When it comes to low ceiling height, Modula’s horizontal carousel is the perfect workaround. Standing at just over eight feet tall and equipped with reliable safety mechanisms and perimeter fencing, this storage system is the ideal way to increase floor space, establish high throughput, and eliminate the need to walk and search for the right goods.
Modula’s horizontal carousel does more than create extra storage space in a low-ceiling warehouse environment. Here are some more benefits of this advanced automated storage and retrieval system.
Modula’s horizontal carousel stores and retrieves goods for you, eliminating the need to find materials throughout your warehouse. This drastically increases productivity. In fact, picking rates can increase to up to 550 lines per hour per worker.
This horizontal storage system has automatic doors and safety fencing to eliminate unsafe or unauthorized access to materials. Because of its automated processes, it also eliminates a substantial number of repetitive actions, which can strain or injure your employees.
The Modula horizontal carousel helps you establish a high degree of organization within your facility. Using visual picking aids, your employees can quickly find, identify, and pick the correct quantity of goods for every order.
By leveraging the power of technology and automation, you can track inventory, order fulfillment, and picking accuracy throughout the day and make adjustments as needed.
Horizontal carousels are commonly utilized in an integrated workstation known as a “pod” to enhance the speed of picking times. The carousels are supported by software and pick-to-light technology, which allows them to work together to improve productivity.
While the worker picks items from one carousel in the pod, the other carousels are automatically pre-positioned for the subsequent pick. This approach reduces worker downtime and significantly increases throughput. Additionally, horizontal carousels set up in pods provide considerable flexibility. With a simple software modification, the pods can be quickly reorganized to meet seasonal peak order periods.
The Horizontal Carousel is available in preconfigured sets consisting of two, three, or four carousels per pod.
Managing your warehouse storage doesn’t need to be a hassle. By partnering with Modula, we make storage and order picking a breeze in any warehouse environment. Whether you need a storage solution for a warehouse with low ceilings or are looking for something a little taller, we can provide you with the tools you need to succeed.
