INTERTEX vertical carousels - The InterMat

Carousels – Optimal efficiency and safety

Carousel storage systems from Intertex are in use wherever inventory must be quickly stored and retrieved with 100% selectivity. This means they are ideally suited for all phases of the product development cycle- from raw material storage, to value added Work In Process inventory storage and ultimately to Finished Goods inventory for sorting / kitting / pre-shipment staging. Efficiency gains are prevalent in every stage as operators simply press a button for Part-to-Person, shortest path delivery and ergonomic golden zone picking. InterMat carousels are not a one or two option choice in motors / chain strength / carrier size or capacity. Limitless combinations and design engineering allow customized configurations optimized for your application.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Storage based on the paternoster principle
  • For long goods, tyres, cable drums, cylinders, tools and rolls and much more besides
  • Access-optimized carrier control
  • Flexible thanks to multiple sling system
  • Optimum use of space available
  • Special sizes on request
  • Manufactured to customer specifications

Your demands – our inspiration

A storage carousel for long goods, cylinders, cable drums, rolls and other goods.

InterMat Vertical Carousels are designed for special applications. Unusually heavy, long, or applications requiring unique chain paths (freeing up the maximum floor space possible) are very common. For instance, bridge units will raise the entire framing system with integral chain path and product loads up off the floor for extended distances. The goal is to free up the maximum value added production space for your company. This assures the fastest payback and often results in additional carousels being placed in the same facility.

Customized carriers, chain paths, loading options are normal

Stored goods are often extremely long and very heavy – and not all systems can come to terms with this. Not so our vertical carousels. Depending on the requirements and capacity, they are perfect for pit and cellar installation or for horizontal and vertical use of the room – perfect flexibility.

Small square footage – large benefits.

Efficient use of the otherwise unused air space above the production line free up value added production floor space – new products, new machines, new profit potential easily realized by using an InterMat.

long goods

A perfect fit: Solutions customized to your needs

In addition to bridge units (where the chain path and carriers leave the floor and traverse horizontally to capture unused space above), multiple loop systems are common and share the Part-to-Person benefit. In all cases, the design starts with the carrier, then the ideal chain path is configured. 100 % selectivity with part picking / re-stock at the safe, ergonomic golden zone.

INTERTEX InterMat - Options

Optional add-ons for your storage carousel

There is always a solution. Generally, taking an unconventional approach makes it possible to identify the right customer-specific answer for your question. The TowerMat is designed for flexible use, also offering the option of achieving objectives via special solutions. No compromises are made when it comes to safety. Whether loading by crane or interchangeable cassettes, depth subdivisions or half shells, we offer diversity to help you find a solution.

Slewing crane / gantry crane

Called many things across the globe, a Slewing / Gantry / or Jib crane is never far from the loading nose of an InterMat. Intertex has supplied many integral cranes to simply the process. Converting to automated storage and retrieval of your long goods offers tremendous benefits and Intertex makes it simple. Placing the machine under hook of a customer‘s existing overhead crane is common.

Carrier depth division

Divisible carriers allow you to store different materials in the same carrier, yet keep each material separate from the others. The removable and adjustable divider pins are mounted on slotted rails.

Short goods / small parts

Anticipating some short goods / smaller cut-offs or parts? Carrier inserts of solid steel or perforated sheet are common in production environments.

Removable cassette

Existing removable cassettes can be stored complete in the vertical carousel by fork-lift truck or overhead crane. The goods can be retrieved either individually or in the complete removable cassette.

Loading nose

The carrier is freely accessible from above, so that it can be loaded and unloaded by overhead crane.

Loading carts

The cylinders or cable reels are loaded and unloaded using a flexible loading cart.

Crane Loading

A loading nose gives clear vertical access of the carrier beam. A overhead crane can then be used to load / unload cylinders. Intertex can supply a crane if needed.

Automatic handling

Automated and unmanned loading and unloading of the storage system is possible.

Laminate storage on custom cradles

Many products have specific support needs to avoid deformation or scarring, let our engineers know your requirements.

Proper Materials Handling of large rolls

Speciality paper for the medical industry, 1 meter (39.4") in diameter, can be stored and pulled by a single operator in seconds.

Roll hangers can be configured for width variances

Allowance for changing future products and custom centering cones with roller bearings permits precision, hi-speed direct off-feeding from the machine.
