The Megamat RS Vertical Carousel

The Megamat RS vertical carousel from Kardex Remstar (Westbrook, ME) features an intelligent drive design made of a drive track, carrier arms, transportation chain, drive motor, drive chain, and hand crank. The components work together to reduce wear and tear on the unit. The carousel features an automatic chain tensioner system in which the drive chain is automatically tensioned using the weight of the motor. The motor and drive chain are mounted as one assembly onto a drive bracket that allows the complete assembly to slide up and down to automatically adjust in relationship to the weight of the carriers. As the carrier weight changes, the entire assembly moves, eliminating chain loosening or tightening.
