Part of the lean processes include the implementation of a Nitrogen Purge Vertical Carousel System by Vistamation, featuring Vista-Seal Door System©, a Vistamation product. The Vista-Seal Door System© provides a means to seal the access opening of vertical carousels for the storage of electronic components and subassemblies that require a nitrogen purged environment to ensure a non-oxidizing storage media. This type of storage is essential in aviation, defense, and electronics industries.
Vertical carousels are suited for consolidating the storage of like sized parts in a small footprint. To access stored materials, the user selects a part from the control interface or through optional application software. Once selected, the carousel rotates via the shortest route and presents part at an ergonomic working height. Because the vertical carousel "footprint" occupies a relatively small area, the cubic utilization is unmatched, while inventory control and accuracy are enhanced.
Vistamation is an industrial systems integrator based in Southern California.
