Designed on the goods to person principle, vertical Shelving Carousels are of a series of shelves that work on a ferris wheel concept. This means they rotate around a track to deliver stored items safely and quickly to an ergonomically positioned work counter. All completed at the operators command. Making use of the available ceiling height, vertical carousels save up to 75% floor space. They can increase productivity by 2/3 when compared to standard shelving.
Shelves (carriers) can be uniquely configured to create a customized storage system and maximize storage density. Each carrier can be fitted with inserts, rollout drawers, intermediate shelves, partitions and specialty holders and can be configured to hold items, totes, containers, cases, cartons and more.
Vertical carousels can be used as standalone work stations or fully integrated into work zones. Standalone vertical carousels are driven by standard controller allowing the operator to move the carriers around the track, stopping as needed. Inventory management software can integrate the vertical carousel with an existing ERP or WMS system for increased productivity, accuracy and security.
More Information on Shelving Carousel
Pick-to-Light Technology can increase accuracy to 99.9%. Position lights located at the work counter assist the operator in picking by lighting a light beacon at the location to pick from. A TIC (Transaction Information Center) light bar mounted to the pick face of the vertical carousel, directs the operator to the exact location of the pick. The TIC can also display additional information such as quantity to pick, part number and part description.

Vidir designed the Shelving Carousel to provide high storage density for bulky and heavier items. This automated storage system works by delivering the product directly to the operator, eliminating climbing and bending to retrieve heavy and bulky items. The carrier in this mechanical shelving concept frequently customizes the unique applications that do not conform to conventional systems.
Increases Available Storage:
The Shelving Carousel can increase your available storage capacity by utilizing the vertical space normally unoccupied by static shelving systems. With a variety of large carrier sizes the Shelving Carousel can haul up bulkier items which cannot normally be stored in a typical vertical carousel. Moreover Vidir’s line of Shelving Carousels can receive a heavy duty upgrade which provides lifting capacities of up to 34,000 lbs.?? |?? 15,422 kg.
Fast and Effective Retrieval Times
Automated vertical carousels such as the Shelving Carousel increase the effectiveness of order processing. You see this through a combination of quick retrieval times and increased picking accuracy. The Shelving Carousel integrates order processing software that will not only track your inventory but process pick lists which provides fast, reliable, and worry free retrieval.
Increase Health and Safety
Implementation of the product to person principle eliminates wasteful and harmful steps for stocking and retrieving parts. Vidir’s Shelving Carousel ensures that operators are working at ergonomically acceptable heights. This reduction in unnecessary bending, walking, and other haphazard retrieval techniques. These include ladders and cherry pickers increase workplace health and safety.
