Kardex Remstar helps oil & gas companies increase profits with dynamic storage

Kardex Remstar has extended the weight capacity of the Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Module product for oil and gas operations looking to reduce floor space, increase productivity and increase profits

The Shuttle XP 1000 can now be equipped with a factory-fitted crane. This crane is electrically operated and mounted on the Shuttle XP load profiles. With a crane dedicated to the storage and retrieval of items from within the unit, operations can reduce costs and increase productivity.

A compact, floor to ceiling solution, the Shuttle VLM eliminates wasted space commonly found in traditional shelving and rack systems to recover up to 85% floor space. This allows organizations to store more product in less floor space, creating space for oil and gas organizations to expand other revenue generating activities.

Operating on the “goods to person principle”, Kardex Remstar solutions are designed to bring the parts to the worker increasing worker efficiency and picking productivity. Eliminating wasted walk and search time commonly associated with manual picking and distribution in oil and gas operations, dynamic storage systems can increase productivity up to 2/3 and reduce labor requirements. More often, facilities are choosing to maintain current labor levels when implementing automated storage to increase picking productivity – resulting in even higher picking capacities without additional labor.

All Kardex Remstar solutions can be integrated with inventory management software to increase efficiencies and provide greater inventory control. Equipped with pick-to-light, technology, a TIC (transaction information center) is mounted at the access opening to direct the operator to the exact location to pick from, displaying the part number and quantity to pick, increasing accuracy to 99.9%.
