Aug. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- A leading provider of automated storage and retrieval systems, vertical storage and retrieval systems, vertical carousels, horizontal carousels, VLMs and Vertical Lift Modules, Sapient Automation, a subsidiary of MDCI, announces the appointment of William M. Fabricino of Plano, Illinois, as their Midwest Sales Manager.

Mr. Fabricino has served as sales manager for Warehouse Systems, Inc., Northbrook, Illinois; Warehouse Equipment Inc., Elk Grove, Illinois; and Kingway Caps, New Hampshire. He began his career in the material handling industry in 1984 installing KardexRemstar, Diamond Phoenix and Richards-Wilcox carousels and has worked as a systems integrator.
Fabricino has extensive application experience in the automotive manufacturing and OEM parts distribution, electronics manufacturing and distribution, pharmaceutical, heavy equipment, consumable products, and printing industries. Mr. Fabricino attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois where he studied electrical engineering.

Fabricino has worked for decades in designing and implementing split case and item material handling systems. His material handling expertise has led him to design hundreds of systems that are focused on reducing labor by 2/3, saving floor space up to 85% while providing 100%ergonomic accessible systems for applications including: order picking, manufacturing, spare parts handling, MRO, tool and die, health care, hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories, retail, consolidation and institutions.

Implementing vertical storage and retrieval solutions such as the Avenger Vertical Carousel and Viper VLM (Vertical Lift Module) has been Fabricino’s expertise. The Avenger Vertical Carousel is a series of shelves or carriers rotate vertically and deliver the required part or item to the operator at an ergonomic height work counter with a click of a button, scan of a bar code or voice command.

The Viper Vertical Lift Module (VLM) provides vertical storage by having two columns of trays (front and back) with a robotic inserter/extractor device running down the center. The operator simply uses a click of a button, scan of a bar code or voice command to deliver the required parts or items to the operator at an ergonomically positioned work counter. In fact, the height of the tray delivery can be personalized for each user’s exact needs. Likewise, a tilt tray system called ViperTilt™ will deliver the tray and tilt it up so an operator can easily reach the entire tray without reaching, stretching and bending and a laser Pick to Light system called LaserViper will place a red dot to a fraction of an inch on the exact item to be picked to increase accuracy.

Fabricino is also expert in creating and implementing systems utilizing the Hornet Horizontal Carousel which is comprised of a series of bins with shelves that rotate on a track horizontally. Multiple horizontal carousels are used in one integrated workstation called a pod. A wave of orders is downloaded to the workstation. Batches of eight to ten orders are then sent to the carousels. The carousels will begin rotating automatically and stop at the first pick. A Pick to Light Lightree directs the picker as to which carousel, the item and quantity to pick. The picker completes the batch in a round robin fashion until the batch is complete. The orders are then sent to shipping or the next workstation and the next batch is started until the entire wave is completed.
