Storage of long goods in cassettes

Maximum storage volume and efficient picking operations for both long and bulky goods

Storage cassettes are an excellent way of storing long goods, for instance, piping, tubing, bars and metal profiles within easy reach, and without taking up too much space. Remmert automatic cassette storage systems enable a wide range of different items to be stored in very compact spaces. Automatic storage and retrieval machines and incoming and outgoing goods stations ensure fast, efficient and accident-free material handling with very few personnel required. The integrated WMS provides full control and transparency of all inventories.

The benefits of cassette storage systems for storing long goods

Cassette storage systems provide the benefits of safely storing many different goods in very compact spaces. Bars, piping, tubing, metal profiles, aluminium rails and other long goods can be stored in interchangeable cassettes, preventing them from falling out. Each cassette can accommodate different goods of varying lengths. Separation within the cassettes can be done via dividers. Small parts or pallets can also be stored in closed cassettes. Cassettes can be stored in the form of drawers within the shelving system. Remmert cassette shelving systems are equipped with automatic storage and retrieval machines. This minimises the amount of personnel and space required.
