The Megamat RS multipurpose proves to be an impressive and versatile performer when it comes to:

  • the direct storage of goods
  • the use of standard storage and transit containers
  • the use of customer-specific containers and vessels

The maximum storage space per carrier can be up to 16 square metres. Depending on the type of unit, the maximum load capacity is 180, 350, or 650 kilograms per carrier. The carrier depth, width, and height can be individually configured on the Megamat RS.

Depending on the application, the carriers can be individually subdivided using intermediate shelves with support plates or self-supporting intermediate shelves.

A combination of drawers, flaps and dividers can be used as required.

Protection for man, machine and stored goods!

provides with its multilevel safety concept the best-possible protection for man, machine and stored goods

Thanks to the protection equipment fitted as standard in the access opening of the storage system, such as the safety light curtain, the operator is optimally protected against accidents in the workplace. Stored goods can be secured against unauthorised access and theft with the help of the lockable smooth-running sliding door. It is also possible to protect the entire unit or certain areas against unauthorised access by issuing individual passwords or using RFID chips for identifying employees.

To ensure maximum safety, Kardex Remstar has equipped the new Megamat RS with four impressive features:

Emergency hand crank Automatic chain tensioner Smooth-running sliding door Clip system
Even in the event of a power outage, the emergency hand crank provides access to stored products at all times. The new chain tensioner significantly reduces the susceptibility of the load chain to wear and tear. The result is a reliable and long-lasting storage system. The lockable sliding door moves especially smoothly. It can be operated automatically or manually and can even be opened with one hand, thereby guaranteeing ease of use and ensuring that employees can continue working uninterrupted. The innovative Kardex Remstar clip system allows for simple, fast and extremely safe assembly of the panels. The increased system stability guarantees maximum protection both for stored goods and on-site employees.

Controlled environments. Controlled storage conditions

Special storage conditions are often required for parts, raw materials, and products. Depending on your individual needs, we supply four optional environment solutions, which we individually integrate into your storage and retrieval system. As a result, your sensitive goods are optimally protected at all times.

Find out how Kardex Remstar environment solutions can help you to store your sensitive goods. We will be happy to advise you.

Temperature. Storage at constant temperatures

A growing number of goods are temperature-sensitive and require constant storage temperatures.

For such requirements, we can optionally equip our storage systems with a climate function capable of maintaining storage temperatures of between –35 °C to +60 °C. Accordingly, carousel systems such as the Megamat RS can store goods at temperatures of between -25 °C and +60 °C. The Shuttle XP storage lift can maintain temperatures ranging from –35 °C to +60 °C.

All components installed in our storage systems are designed to operate at the required temperatures to ensure optimal performance. The systems are cooled with eco-friendly coolants.

Kardex Remstar climate solution:

  • Store goods at temperatures as low as –35 °C
  • Store goods at a maximum temperature of up to +60 °C
  • Temperature remains constant +/–1 K
  • Dependent on the type of unit

Clean room. Clean room solutions for a particle-free environment

Companies in a wide range of sectors – including semiconductor manufacturers, aircraft builders, hospitals, and pharmaceutical and optical companies –generally all have particular requirements in relation to their storage environment. Our storage and retrieval systems provide the solution here, because they guarantee storage of goods under the right conditions.

The Kardex Remstar clean room solution gives you the option to store your sensitive items (e.g., particle-free components for semiconductor production). If you require a separate clean room for your goods, the unit can also be supplied as a stand-alone clean room.

Kardex Remstar clean room solution:

  • Clean room classes ranging from EN-ISO 5 to 8 (5 on request)
  • Temperature remains constant +/–1 K
  • Positive/negative pressure
  • Hygienic design

Drying. Sustainable solution for controlling humidity in storage areas

We have refined our dynamic storage and retrieval systems especially for the semiconductor industry and provided the option to control the relative air humidity.

The solution is designed in accordance with the international guidelines of the JEDEC (Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council) and is thus particularly suitable for the semiconductor industry.

Kardex Remstar dry solution:

  • 10% relative humidity through nitrogen purging
  • Adsorption drying (application: storage of SMD components)
  • ESD-compatible design

Fire protection. Innovative fire protection: Extinguish fires with no undesirable effects

Effective fire protection pays off, because in an emergency situation it’s not just fire and smoke that cause damage, but also non-residue-free extinguishing agents. This is why we offer our customers a residue-free gas-based extinguishing system.

Residue-free and low reaction
The earliest possible detection of fire helps to discover it during its formation phase, so that the extinguishing system can be activated.

This involves permanently monitoring the situation by taking air samples and testing them for smoke particles. If a fire is detected, the extinguishing system is activated. The storage unit and the goods remain protected while the fire is extinguished. Nitrogen is used for this purpose, a residue-free inert gas.

In the event of a fire it is gently released into the storage system. The extinguishing system complies with VdS guideline 2380 and provides outstanding protection for the stored goods and the storage system.

Kardex Remstar fire protection solution:

  • Residue-free fire extinguishing with early warning system
  • Individual acceptance test possible in accordance with FM Global requirements
  • Goods and the storage unit remain intact in the event of a fire
  • Fewer downtimes
  • Available as a turnkey solution
