DST introduces a new storage system

The manufacturer of magnetic couplings and canisters can now make use of an efficient storage solution. From now on, the vertical lift system by Kardex Remstar replaces the conventional storage racks. Manufacturing parts are being stored by a scan system with barcodes, which allows DST a fast and clear access to all articles.

The lift system consists of 30 panels, which automatically fit the individual height of the magnetic couplings and canisters. Small adjustment steps of 25 millimeters enable the supply of the individual goods with different heights in low clearances. DST therefore gains more flexibility and can take advantage of the liftsystem’s volume. With a capacity of 60 europallets per rack and 490 kilograms per panel, more storage space by substantially smaller utility space is available for DST, who has invested in three racks in total.

„The advantages of this storage system are obvious: time saving by reducing the access times, precise inventory stocks via the scan system, more safety for the employees and products in stock, and last but not least, a simplification of pre-packing”, says Volker Gries, Production Manager at DST.
