Self-lubricating wheels on the scissor arm assemblies of Sapient Automation Avenger™ Vertical Carousels help extend its operational life in food processing storage and retrieval applications while reducing maintenance costs. The wheels also provide quiet run time, especially when compared to other metal, plastic and non-petro-based materials. Instead of using a single scissor arm design, the system's scissor arms are double reinforced. The unit's arms use a forging for maximum reliability intead of using a pin to attach the arms to the rollers in the guide track. The system consists of rotating shelves that move up or down in response to operator commands, delivering items at an ergonomically positioned window for easy removal. Vertical design maximizes the use of overhead space and can recover up to 75% of the floor space required for traditional rack and shelving systems.
