Carousel storage system is an automated storage and retrieval system where items are stored on rotating shelves for easy access. The use of carousels allows for the storage of large quantities of stock in a small floor area. Due to their minimal space requirements, industrial carousel storage systems can be set up directly at a machine or assembly point. This means the handling time can be significantly reduced, which benefits the production process.

  • An efficient storage system based on the principle of a paternoster
  • Takes up minimal floor space and optimally uses the height of the room
  • Differentiation between horizontal and vertical constructions

Computer-operated archiving systems make it easy to bring the relevant pieces to the opening for loading. In terms of their construction, there are two main types of carousels storage systems – vertical and horizontal. The horizontal carousel storage system rotates and stores products in a horizontal plane, while the vertical carousel storage system rotates and stores products in a vertical plane.

The vertical carousel is a high performance rotating carousel storage system that has two main advantages that are particularly important: it takes up minimal floor space and it optimally uses the height of the room.

Through its several openings, a vertical carousel allows for the quick and efficient loading of goods. This carousel storage system is suitable for rollers and goods in storage boxes. The vertical carousel is based on the principle of a paternoster, located within the stable and encased frame.

Such a vertical carousel is equipped with an electronic operating system and a lower shelf or another type of mount on which the goods can be placed; the combination of these two features allows for a uniform motion, depending on the desired position where the goods should be dispensed. The paternoster is mostly moved with the use of a chain. Computer-based storage space allocation makes it easy to bring the goods directly to the desired location. Every compartment of the carousel shelf is accordingly coded and the position is detected via sensors; this is how the machine is controlled and operated.

Efficient carousel storage systems (including both the vertical and the horizontal carousel) are installed in a large number of different industrial sectors. Although the horizontal carousel storage has found its application in many industries, the vertical carousel is considered to be more prevalent, particularly in areas where there is little space available to store the small components required for the production and assembly.

Vertical carousels can be used to storage work documents in such a way that all the necessary documents for production are kept in suspension files and can then be quickly and easily found thanks to the intelligent search functions and archiving methods. It is especially useful to have a vertical storage carousel in the close vicinity of assembly lines, as it can provide the necessary pieces required for the production process. This means that long searching and routes are not required, which significantly increases the work productivity. It is also possible to provide special carousel shelf solutions to meet the specific requirements of the corresponding receptacles and storage facilities. All these features make vertical carousel a very efficient support system in the industry.
