we provide you with maintenance, repair and operations inventory management solutions

This market segment has vast opportunities for the implementation of vertical storage devices.  Shuttles® save an abundance of space creating room for value added production floor space.  Let’s face it – storing parts does not offer the return of investment that useful production space can generate for a production facility.  Every square foot is expensive and the need to utilize the ceiling space is critical.  Space can be generated and improvements to inventory control, security and picking accuracy is critical to busy production areas.

How Our Maintenance Repair and Operating Solutions Help

All our Kardex Remstar systems are designed to store various sized products and can be easily configured to accommodate physical changes of stored goods quickly. Allowing you to keep only what you need on hand, effectively reducing overproduction.

The nature of an automated system is to bring items to the operator, eliminating walk and search time. Batch picking, pick-to-light and inventory management software are just a few keys to eliminating wait time.

Items are delivered to the operator at an ergonomic work height eliminating unnecessary /excess motion such as walking, searching, reaching and bending.

Storing goods in a point-of-use automated solution reduces unnecessary processing and transportation of goods from work cell to work cell and helps eliminate defects.

Multiple levels of integrated “point & click” software helps manage inventory, ensuring you have the right product at the right time at the right place eliminating unnecessary inventory.
