Providing more storage locations in less floor space than standard drawer cabinets, the automated drawer carousel increases stored part density with 60 additional cell locations per bin. The carousel consists of an oval track with rotating bins (or sections of shelving) containing shelves and totes that automatically deliver stored items to the operator. Totes slide in and out for quick, easy access to parts. The carousel may also be configured to store bulk items at any height. Inventory optimizing software is included, displaying a part’s bin-shelf-cell location and providing basic inventory management. KardexRemstar, 800-639-5805, www.kardexremstar.com.
