Rotomat® Storage Carousels
The Hanel Rotomat® storage system is a dynamic solution that uses vertically rotating shelves to bring stored items to the system operator. Vertical Carousel Modules are a series of carriers attached in fixed locations to a chain drive. Movement is powered by two motors, which send the carriers in a vertical loop around a track in a back and forward motion using the same principle as a Ferris wheel. Goods are stored or retrieved through an ergonomically positioned access opening with a work counter.
Controllers & software
Each Hanel Rotomat® comes complete with a controller that provides standalone functionality that can be configured through optional modules to meet client-specific needs and requirements, such as serial numbers, lot numbers and expiry dates. Where multiple machines are deployed, controllers can be networked together to provide visibility across the network of controllers and via a web browser on mobile devices, tablets, or PC’s. More information about controllers can be found here HanelSoft® Storage Software is available where further functionality is needed.
integration to host systems
An individual Rotomat® or network of Rotomats® can quite easily be integrated with a higher-level host ERP or WMS system. The web service-based technology enables a link between the host, (SAP for example) and the machine’s controller without the need for middleware.
Users can request items or specific shelves directly from the Controller. Transactions or orders can also be delivered to the network from a host system and processed at the controller. The controller locates the requested items, optimized sequentially for picking efficiency, and seamlessly rotates the carriers to present the needed shelf at the workstation for operator processing.
