A horizontal carousel is an automated storage and retrieval system that can cost-effectively reduce stock-picking man-hours, enabling businesses to recover their investment. Inventory management and order fulfillment can be a significant cost to a warehouse, but a carousel system is an excellent tool for increasing productivity and increasing accuracy.
If staff have to add walk and search time to their material handling process, this can negatively affect picking operations speed. A horizontal system uses a series of shelving units that move on an oval track. Each compartment has shelves or bins to separate stock into organized containers.
Operators enter a bin number, part number, or location, and the carousel brings the relevant unit to the staff member. This automation of inventory control increases order picking rate and reduces picking errors.

WireCrafters wire partitions are ideal for the construction of tool cribs. With a designated, secure area to store tools and equipment, you no longer worry about who has what tool, or where tools have been misplaced.
Many companies have found using wire partitions to organize their tool rooms has paid dividends in return.

Many tool cribs also have a service window so the plant personnel do not have to enter into the actual tool crib.
Driver access cages protect your company as well as visitors, vendors, and other warehouse or building personnel. Truck drivers, delivery people and other non-employees who enter your facility can be an insurance risk.

Typically these driver cages are furnished with a service window with a shelf to provide the driver a counter to sign and pick up their paperwork. The access cage also has a pe- destrian hinge door for access.
