Optimize your manufacturing, distribution, or production facility with vertical storage and retrieval carousel (VSR).  We will work with you to improve and control the flow of materials throughout your facility.  Maximize the use of valuable floor space to eliminate waste and create a facility that operates efficiently.

What are the benefits of Vertical Storage Carousels?

  • Ergonomic storage and retrieval work stations
  • Improved inventory management control
  • Lockable doors and password protected access to inventory
  • Provide dust protection
  • Up to 80% savings in floor space by turning unused air space into productive storage space
  • Up to 600% increase in productivity

Vertical Storage Carousels are available in more than 7,000 standard configurations and are well suited for service counter applications, allowing the operator to remain visible to customers while items are automatically retrieved.

How Vertical Storage Carousel Work

Vertical Carousels are fully enclosed storage systems of vertically rotating shelves moving up and down along a guide tracking delivering stored items to an operator at an ergonomically positioned work counter, eliminating wasted walk and search time.  The Vertical Storage Carousel’s ergonomic design allows items to be delivered within the user’s easy reach, minimizing bending, reaching and lifting that reduces picking efficiency and can lead to on-the-job injuries.

Software Manages Parts Inventory

The Vertical Carousel’s inventory management software is called FastPic.  FastPic is integrated into the machine for increased levels of productivity and inventory management. An advanced, but easy-to-use controller is ergonomically positioned to ensure fast, simple operation. A number of Vertical Storage Carousels (VSR) and Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) can be integrated to provide a comprehensive, fully automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS).

Work with SYSTEMATICS to Meet the 7 Principles of Universal Design


#1 —  Equitable Use: The design is useful and marketable to people.

Electronic Lateral Files provide 100% accessibility while saving floor space and increasing productivity for all people with diverse abilities


# 2 —   Flexibility In Use: The design accommodates a wide range of individual preferences and abilities.

Storage methods within the systems can be modified to meet individual requirements or preferences.


# 3 —  Simple & Intuitive Use: Use of the design is easy to understand, regardless of the user’s experience, knowledge, language skills, or current concentration level.

Simple push of a button or scan of a barcode rotates the required file or item to the operator


#4 —  Perceptible Information: The design communicates necessary information effectively to the user, regardless of the ambient conditions or the user’s sensory abilities.

Easy to read indicators and plain text graphics allow immediate use with little or no training.


#5 —  Tolerance For Error: The design minimizes hazards and the adverse consequences of the accidental or unintended actions.

Safety photocell beams, imbalance load indicator and intuitive controls protect the operator and the contents of the system.


# 6 —  Low Physical Effort: The design can be used efficiently and comfortably with minimum fatigue.

Simply by touching a button, the unit rotates to the selected location, bringing the contents to the operator. Unit drawers are accessed with 5 lbs. of effort or less.


#7 —  Size And Space For Approach And Use: Appropriate size and space is provided for approach, reach, manipulation, and use regardless of user’s body, size, posture or mobility.

Electric Lateral File units are designed to meet ADA requirements for forward and side reach. Operation of controls meets ADA requirements.
