SILO solutions are ideal for rapid supply of small parts or for order picking
The SILO series of vertical storage solutions features a central vertical lift system for the automatic retrieval of items and delivery to an access opening mechanism, according to the goods-to-person principle. Modular and ergonomic in design, there are various SILO models to suit intensive storage of a variety of items such as containers, trays or cartons, as well as long or bulky items. “ICAM’s SILO solutions are versatile and space-efficient,” explained Keith Washington, “so they are ideal for a wide variety of distribution and manufacturing applications such as small parts or component storage, buffer storage of semi-finished goods and picking of slow-moving or high-value items.”
