A Compact, Automated Bin Storage System from Kardex Remstar

Vertical Buffer Module

The Vertical Buffer Module is a completely enclosed bin handling system using automatic height sensing to compactly store totes, trays, and bins. Telescopic grippers deliver a single bin to up to four turntable or conveyor style pick stations at once. While the operator is picking, the unit prepares the next bin.  

  • This controlled and continuous access facilitates the picking of up to 500 Order Lines per Station/Hour with virtually no error. The VBM boasts the fastest and most precise order picking to date. Quick and efficient delivery of small batches makes this a major asset for manufacturing and just-in-time assembly. The Vertical Buffer Module is ideal for storing slow movers and low volume batches. Modular and scalable, the Vertical Buffer Module (VBM) offers maximum flexibility for any size operation or building dimensions.

OPTIMIZED INTRALOGISTICS

  • Attain 99.9% Pick Accuracy

    “Goods-to-Person” delivery reduces travel and search time, thereby increasing employee productivity. Automatic replenishment further reduces labor requirements.

    Secure Your Inventory

    Goods are delivered to the operator’s “golden zone” via single access openings, conveyors, or turntables positioned at an ideal 20-degree angle.

     

    Maximum Environmental Control

    Integrate with other systems (conveyor systems, scanners, pick-to-light products, warehouse management systems, etc.) for an optimized material flow and more competitive turnaround.

     

    Efficient, High-Density Storage

    When compared with similar systems, Kardex Remstar’s Vertical Buffer Module used only about one-third the amount of energy, with no recovery time necessary.

     

    Increase Throughput by 200%

    This efficient, high density storage system accommodates items of varying dimensions on trays, bins, or totes. It is both modular and scalable, allowing you to be ready for whatever the future holds.

  • Cut Labor By 2/3

    “Goods-to-Person” delivery reduces travel and search time, thereby increasing employee productivity. Automatic replenishment further reduces labor requirements.

     

    Mindful Ergonomics

    Goods are delivered to the operator’s “golden zone” via single access openings, conveyors, or turntables positioned at an ideal 20-degree angle.

     

    Streamlined Systems Integration

    Integrate with other systems (conveyor systems, scanners, pick-to-light products, warehouse management systems, etc.) for an optimized material flow and more competitive turnaround.

     

    70% Energy Reduction

    When compared with similar systems, Kardex Remstar’s Vertical Buffer Module used only about one-third the amount of energy, with no recovery time necessary.

     

    Enhanced Adaptability

Vertical Buffer Module Benchmarks:


  • E- Commerce - Chocolate World

    Two LR35 Vertical Buffer Modules and Power Pick Global warehouse management software ensured inventory and picking accuracy beyond Chocolate World's expectations.

  • Building Supplies Wholesale – Vihamij

    Vihamij drastically increased their order processing by 300 order lines/hour/person to acheive a 24 hour turnaround. They were able to cut the onsite staff from from 6 to 2.5 and reduce unecessary travel time.

  • Hardware Wholesaler – Wildkamp

    The installation of six vertical buffer units, Power Pick Global Software, and put frames nearly tripled Wildkamp's picking rates. This put Wildkamp well on their way towards their 24 hour order turnaround goal.
