From storing small parts to large, heavy tools, Kardex Remstar automated storage and retrieval systems enable organizations to keep inventory all in one place. The Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Module (VLM) offers highly dense storage in a compact footprint. By using the vertical space from floor to ceiling, vertical storage systems eliminate wasted space in shelving systems to recover up to 85% floor space. This allows organizations to create floor space for additional manufacturing or other revenue generating activities.

Due to the global pandemic, work environments are being continuously modified to meet the social distancing guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Integrating two or more Shuttle XPs into operations provides individual workstations for warehouse operators. With proper distance between operators, productivity can be maintained or improved by 2/3 when compared to traditional shelving operations, as well as keep employees safe from the threat of COVID-19 exposure.

To avoid onsite visits for any unexpected errors, Remote Support allows Kardex Remstar service technicians to proactively monitor systems from afar. There are two features included with Remote Support. First, Remote Assistance manages remote diagnostics, allowing simple maintenance requests to be performed remotely instead of onsite, reducing downtime. Second, Remote Analytics gives users access to machine data anywhere via a web browser. This analysis tool guarantees a high level of process reliability for storage unit operations.
