Product Portfolio
  • Material Handling

      • Vertical Lift Systems

      • Systems from Kardex Remstar support all kinds of order picking: ergonomic design, time and space saving.

        Retrieval, control and packing into shipping containers are combined into one work operation.

        Handling steps can be minimised even more using a combination with modern conveyor systems. Turnaround times are optimised by installing modern warehouse management software, for example Power Pick Global. By randomly allocating storage locations, it is possible to perform two-stage picking. Storage can take place simultaneously and the error rate for storage and retrieval is minimised.

          • XPMultiple

          • The Shuttle XPMultiple automatic storage system provides greater capacity, optimum use of space and very fast delivery. The system consists of two independent modular high bay systems arranged in tandem with trays moving from the front to the rear system and vice versa. The arrangement cuts the space required for movement by 50 per cent compared to individual storage and retrieval systems.

            The Shuttle XPMultiple is ideal storage technology where it is impossible to install two separate systems and allows deep, narrow spaces can be used to their full extent. Routes are reduced by only having one delivery gate.


            Increases capacity or reduces floor space being used
            Improves productivity – system prepares next tray while operator is working on the previous one
            Optimal use of awkward spaces in terms of height and depth
            Futureproof – can be used alone or as part of an integrated system

        • Vertical Carousels

        • A vertical carousel features a series of shelves which can be rotated so that the user can access the requested items more easily. Not only that, it allows for their removal from a safe and convenient height, minimizing the likelihood of accidents or injuries.
          Vertical storage carousels will:

          • Save floor space - as you instead maximize the use of vertical space
          • Save Time - as retrieval times are reduced
          • Improve health and safety - as physical effort is reduced and awkward lifting positions are eliminated
          • Enhance security - as additional security options are available

          Our vertical storage solutions are suitable for tools, stationery, industrial and commercial hardware and consumables. The benefits for each remain the same - improved effectiveness in the order picking process and either increased storage space or more efficient use of what is available.
            • Megamat RS 180

            • Efficient storage and fast retrieval of lightweight loads

              The Megamat RS 180 is mostly suitable for the orderly storage and picking of textiles or small parts in containers – for instance in the hotel and medical sectors, in vehicle manufacturing and mechanical engineering, and in the electronics industry.

            • Megamat RS 350

            • Ideal for medium-sized loads

              The Megamat RS 350 is the perfect solution for storing and retrieving components, tools and spare parts. Among the wide range of possible applications, each carrier can be loaded with up to 350 kg.

            • Megamat RS 650

            • For heavy loads of up to 650 kg per carrier

              The Megamat RS 650 can be used in a variety of different areas. For instance, it can be integrated in the production process in a number of ways – either as an interim storage solution for semi-finished products or as a storage buffer during drying phases.

          • Horizontal Systems

                • Horizontal Carousels

                • With a Kardex Remstar Horizontal Carousel goods are stored and retrieved quickly, reliably and cost-effectively.

                  Efficient picking station
                  A Horizontal Carousel makes optimal use of the existing room length. The central access opening positioned at the front of the Horizontal Carousel and the arrangement of the machines in so-called picking stations give the picker fast access to the stored goods on a minimal footprint. This reduces the travel time usually necessary for personnel working on a conventional shelf storage system.

                  Another advantage: all Horizontal Carousels belonging to one picking station work simultaneously. This guarantees permanent access to goods and reduces unproductive staff waiting times to a minimum.

                  Efficient order picking is made possible by linking a Horizontal Carousel with warehouse management software (e.g. Kardex Remstar Power Pick Global) and using various optical display elements. Picking performance can be improved even further if picking strategies such as “batch picking” are applied.
