Improved Inventory Control for Medical Device Manufacturing Industry

Kardex Remstar automated storage and retrieval products are designed to help medical device manufacturers establish good manufacturing practices by providing improved inventory control, increased accountability and added cleanliness for stored medical devices.

The Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is an enclosed system of vertically arranged trays, an extraction platform and a series of computerized controls that allows operators to stay in one place as the Shuttle XP delivers items to an ergonomically positioned workstation. "Providing inventory security and controlled access to critical components while offering quick and accurate order picking helps manufacturers avoid costs associated with mispicked inventory," said a company spokesperson.

The Kardex Remstar Megamat RS Vertical Carousel, comprised of a series of shelves rotating around a track, similar to a ferris wheel, also delivers goods directly to an operator and at an ergonomic work height. Full product enclosures in both vertical carousels and VLMs maintains the cleanliness of the stored items and can be modified for cleanroom use, reducing outside contamination and cross contamination, when necessary.

These systems offer controlled access for added security. Power Pick Global inventory management software can help medical device manufacturers establish quality processes in manufacturing by providing electronic documentation for stock rotation programs and ensuring expired devices are purged from inventory and not shipped. Validation and traceability features, such as bar code verification, allow tracking of non-conforming items and prevent accidental release of items on hold. These features improve traceability, reduce the number of paper reports and improve overall risk management.
