A carousel is an automated storage and retrieval system for small light weight components like spare parts, electronic & electrical components.
It works on the principle of goods to man, thereby eliminating travel time required by the operator to retrieve the goods. A number of carriers (shelves) are suspended closely on a pair of heavy duty endless chains driven by an electric motor through reduction gear box.
The entire contents of the Carousel can be stocked and retrieved from a single access window situated at a suitable height. Controls provided permit the carrier movements through a shortened path. Retrieval can be done by entering the bin number or the carrier number. Further automation can be provided by microprocessor control and suitable computer software.
