In a press conference held Monday in Booth 2919, Kardex Remstar introduced the new Megamat RS vertical carousel and the Element vertical lift module (VLM).

Featuring vertically arranged storage trays delivered (using an extractor platform) to the operator at an ergonomic access opening, the Element VLM saves 80% of floor space over traditional rack shelving applications, said Colman Roche, VP of sales. Units range in height from 13 to 26 feet in 1.6-foot increments.

Incorporating interchangeable carriers and multiple control options, the Megamat RS reduces lifecycle costs through a new drive motor, high efficiency transmission and precision-calibrated frequency converter. These improvements cut energy use by 40%, while an automatic chain tensioning system eliminates stretching and wear on the load chain to reduce maintenance, said Roche.

Both units can be reconfigured at any time to meet changing requirements.

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
