Horizontal carousels contain a series of bins that are linked together with a continuous chain and mounted on elongated tracks. When activated, the bins revolve around in a circle, bringing the desired bin to the operator to picked the selected items from when needed. Lights and displays direct the order picker to the proper bin and indicate what quantity of the product to select and, in a batch selection environment, what specific order to put the items to.
Carousels are available in an almost unlimited variety of heights, lengths, widths, bin designs and capacities, and are used in many different applications in your warehouse or distribution center to efficiently facilitate the movement of materials. It has proven particularly effective in small parts selection, especially when integration with a warehouse management system is done.
