Our team was briefed to design a secure storage solution for mass, high value small parts that could be picked and transported to the building teams with minimal handling. In addition, space was an issue so we needed to reduce storage space, increase capacity and improve picking efficiency all at the same time.
The solution was to install a Dexion Tornado Carousel, which allows for the mass storage of parts and features secure access controls to restrict use by unauthorised personnel. The carousel system can improve productivity in picking times up to 60 per cent and saves around 70 per cent of floor space compared to shelving solutions. In addition, to reduce handling times, a conveyor system was installed to ensure parts reached their destination more efficiently.
