Vidir’s Carpet Carousel (or VLM) is the industry-leading storage and display solution for carpet rolls of various widths, diameters, and sizes. The motorized carousel stores carpet rolls vertically, which reduces the floor space required to manage carpet inventory.
Additionally, Vidir has designed a line of carpet cutting machines that integrate seamlessly with Vidir’s Carpet Carousel to create a complete storage and display solution.
Vidir’s Carpet Carousel is a value-added solution for warehouse automation programs and improves both productivity and safety.
The motorized Carpet Carousel stores and retrieves carpet rolls overhead to minimize your storage footprint. This automated storage and display system provides high-density storage in a small footprint, which will permit the saved space to be used for other revenue generating activities.
Vidir's Carpet Carousel may be commonly used as either a storage unit or integrated into production lines. Either application benefits from the increased efficiencies that a vertical carousel provides, whether the result is increased output from almost negligible roll changeovers, or the potential realized by automating storage and real-time inventory tracking.
Vidir's Carpet Carousel eliminates bulky and unsafe product handling techniques for storing and retrieving rolled material. The Carpet Carousel ensures that operators are working at ergonomically comfortable heights and reduces unnecessary bending, walking, lifting, and pushing, which helps avoid work-related injuries. The carousel rotates the selected carpet roll to a height chosen by the operator where it can be easily handled. Loading rolls onto the Carpet Carousel is made even safer with our patented loading bar system.
Vidir's Carpet Carousel can be equipped with one of Vidir's various inventory control solutions which greatly reduce retrieval times, and provide real-time inventory data. In order to improve production flow and allow the operator to pull the carpet off the carousel with control and accuracy, this automated storage system can be equipped with bearings, tension collars, locking collars, and tapered cones. Additional configurations include heavy-duty models, multi-tower or over-the-top carousels, and multi-space or rear loading configurations.
A Standard Tire Carousel Package includes the following:
Allows carpet rolls to be transported quickly and easily to and from the carousel.
Advertising fixture with a spotlight that attaches to the front of the carousel for retail installations.
Multi-Position, Multi-Tower and Over-the-Top configuration options allow you to fully utilize available space, chain multiple towers together, or extend storage above existing displays.
Motorized Carpet Cutters that feed directly from the carousel and feature a cut/measure/re-roll system to enable quick, easy, and reliable service.
This feature includes an enclosed ceiling and adds solid paneling on the front and rear of the carousel.
Secure the product core to the carrier, allow the roller to rotate independently of the carrier while keeping tension, or secure rolls in place to prevent lateral movement.
RAL color changes are available. Customize the look of your carousel to match company colors or designs.
