Strybuc Industries Implements Carousel System  
trybuc Industries has installed  
a new carousel system in its  
Pennsylvania warehouse that is  
designed to increase the throughput  
of orders.  
The system brings parts to the ship-  
per, reducing travel time to pull parts  
for an order. It also introduces “batch”  
picking into the order flow, which al-  
lows a shipper to process six orders  
at one time. If a part is listed on more  
than one of those six orders, the ship-  
per will only have to go to the bin once  
to retrieve the part and distribute it  
among the orders in the batch.  
According to company information,  
a carousel system dramatically cuts  
down on shipping errors, integrat-  
ing the use of a lighting system that  
points to the bin where a part is to  
be retrieved and also illuminates the  
quantity. Inventory count accuracy is  
improved with a carousel system and  
the warehouse management soft-  
ware contains many tools to continu-  
ally assist in the correct slotting of the  
material. n  
Strybuc recently installed a new carousel system in its Pennsylvania warehouse.
