Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase: Umlaufregale (horizontal & vertical)
Medium: Product brochure
Audience: Materials managers etc.
General context:
Automated storage/retrieval systems
Specific context:
Title of the brochure and of its main sections.
The brochure deals with Umlaufregale of two types: horizontal [carousel type] & vertical [paternoster type]. In both of these versions, the system brings the storage unit/rack (_Regal_) and its compartment that contains the desired stored item to the operator swiftly and automatically to facilitate stock picking (kommissionieren).
What I’m looking for is the correct English
*** collective term/Sammelbegriff***
in actual, common industrial usage for the horizontal AND vertical units.

Attached is a limited Google search I’ve conducted so far:

Thanks for your help!

Horizontalkarusselle horizontal carousels
Horizontalkarusselle sind dynamische Lagersysteme, bei denen durch horizontal umlaufende Trageinheiten das Prinzip “Ware zum Mann” realisiert wird.
Mit Horizontalkarussellen werden Waren, Paletten, Gitterboxen etc. auf umlaufenden Trageinheiten gelagert und in der Entnahmezone bereitgestellt.
Einzelne Karussellläger werden dabei ohne Gangflächen und damit ohne Platzverlust direkt aneinander gereiht. Sie ergeben ein kostensparendes, leistungsfähiges Bereitstellungssystem gleichzeitig zum Kommissionieren und Lagern. Der Bediener hat in der Entnahmezone parallel Zugriff auf mehrere Regaleinheiten.

The history of INTERTEX Maschinenbau
INTERTEX Maschinenbau is a medium sized concern which has been in family possession and run by them since 1967, and is located in the industrial centre of Southern Germany. Intertex's success can be traced back to the diligence and efficiency for Swabian concerns which is known far beyond the county boundaries, and to the fact that it has the entire support of all its employees. INTERTEX is a founder member of the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Umlaufregale" (Paternoster Storage Systems Association) whereby paternosters are produced along the strict guidelines of this association. The Quality Committee of the GUETERGEMEINSCHAFT UMLAUFREGALE (Quality Association Paternoster Storage System) awarded INTERTEX the Seal of Quality for paternoster systems RAL-GZ608 recognized by the "Deutsche Institut fuer Guetesicherung und Kennzeichnung e.V." for being the first German manufacturer of special vertikal non-guided paternoster (carousel) systems.

Umlaufregale
Umlaufregale nach dem Paternostersystem für Dokumente und Akten (im Büro) oder für Teile, Werkzeuge und Produkte (im Lager) sind “Dynamische Lagersysteme”, die das Idealprinzip “Ware zum Mann” verwirklichen. Durch flexibel nutzbare Fachböden ermöglichen sie eine hohe Lagerverdichtung. Sie nutzen den kompletten Freiraum vom Boden bis zur Decke und reduzieren damit den Flächenbedarf im Lager oder Büro. Freie Plätze, benötigte Waren oder Akten werden auf Anforderung automatisch in ergonomisch vorbildlicher Zugriffshöhe bereitgestellt. So wird Sucharbeit reduziert und die Ablage- oder Kommissionierleistung der Mitarbeiter erhöht

Sonderpaternoster special-purpose paternoster
Sonderpaternoster sind Umlaufregale, die für spezielle Anwendungen, wie z. B. extrem schwere oder lange Waren, besondere Raumverhältnisse oder ähnliches konzipiert werden. Dabei wird der Sonderpaternoster optimal an die gegebenen Verhältnisse angepasst und kann z. B. als Brückenpaternoster den Freiraum über der Produktion, über innerbetriebliche Transportwege oder auch toten Raum in verwinkelten Ecken für die Lagerung voll ausnutzen.

Wesentliche Merkmale der Sonderpaternoster sind:
Die Lastträger sind in der Regel frei pendelnd aufgehängt, dies ermöglicht die Zuladung von über 3 Tonnen in einzelnen Tragsätzen.
Die Gesamtbeladungen können pro Paternoster weit über 100 Tonnen betragen.
Im Vergleich zum Standard-Paternoster kann das Lagergut erheblich größere Maße (Länge, Tiefe, Höhe) haben, z. B. bis zu 10 m lang.
Durch die flexiblere Rahmenkonstruktion können mehrere Geräte, die hintereinander aufgestellt sind, miteinander als Einheit verbunden werden.
Die Tragsätze können an den Bedienstellen mit einem Kran von oben beladen werden.
Brückenpaternoster erlauben die Raumausnutzung über Maschinen, Gängen oder Arbeitsplätzen als zusätzlichen Lagerraum.

horizontal / vertical carousel
Explanation:
This is a tough call and fairly complex, because a standard term might just confuse the eventual user. I would base my translation on a picture. See the one at whitesystems.com for an idea. Horizontal and vertical carousels seem to be referred to as just plain "carousels" - or as Werner points out "rotating shelves" - though I think it will vary tremendously within industries. If Tom's customer is selling to many industries, then it seems to me like carousel is slightly ahead - as it more generally refers to the whole unit of "moveable items in easily accessible storage."

Some German reference works seem to also like "rack."

Manfred Hessenberger (former Mercedes-Benz Logistics/Purchasing manager/global) says "recirculation rack" in his Fachwörterbuch Losgistik published by Verlag Vahlen - whereas Vanessa Scot-Sabic's Springer Dictionary of Logistics says:
Umlaufregal: carousel [Lager]
Umlauflager: rotary rack

The Gabler Logistics Lexicon defines "Umlaufregallager" in German: The storage item and its bin/tote move together as one unit, either horizontally (Karussellregal) or vertically (Schrankpaternoster, Schlangenpaternoster); small items are stored in the Schrankpaternoster, long items in the Schlangenpaternoster.
[my rough translation].

Hope you think that helped. Good luck!

horizontal / vertical carousel (storage) rack


Explanation:
I also have a customer involved in this line of work.

http://www.betec-logistik.de

This is their present English and German text:

"Vertical Carousel Rotating Long Stock Storage - Type LP

The Vertical Carousel Rotating Long Stock Storage is a rack system with long stock gondolas attached to carrier chain loops.
The maximum total stock load may not exceed 20 metric tons.
The maximum total stock load in any one gondola may not exceed 1 metric ton. The number of gondolas is dependent on the desired gondola size and stock load as well as the ceiling height."

=

"Langgutpaternoster Typ LP

Der Langgutpaternoster ist ein Umlaufregal mit entsprechenden Langgutgondeln, die in eine Förderkette eingebunden sind.
Die maximale Gesamtlast der zu lagernden Stäbe soll 20 t nicht überschreiten.
Die Belastung pro Gondel beträgt max. 1 t. Die Anzahl der Gondeln hängt von der Gondelgröße sowie von der Raumhöhe ab."

I have also researched this terminology often over the years I have been working for them. The site is presently a little behind the current status of my research. We have decided to remove the word "rotating" (because it is redundant when the word "carousel" is used, I only used it in the early years because I was not confident enough that "carousel" was so widely known) with the next revision of their site and to change the word "gondolas" to "carriers". These changes were made for the company's brochures before the Hanover Fair.

The term "carousel" does now appear to be very commonly used.

If one runs a Google (English – .com) search for +Vertical +Horizontal +Carousel +Rotating +Storage, you get 172 hits which is a lot for so many parameters:

http://www.google.de/search?as_qt=w&as_q=Vertical Horizontal...

You will see that they are nearly all pertinent.

Michael as absolutely right with the term "revolving shelf or shelves", but this term seems to be more often used for storage objects that are light in weight or small in size. For more weighty objects like steel, pallets, etc, the term "rack" usually shows up somewhere in the description. If your customer, like mine, is involved with heavy stuff like pipe, beams, etc, the terms:

"Horizontal carousel (storage) rack"

or

"Vertical carousel (storage) rack"

might possibly be best.

Explanation:
The material managements portal APICS.ORG uses "carousel" as a distinguishing category or sub-type for picking systems. (see first reference)

This is a cross-industry body which has produced a dictionary on general materials management terms. E.g.:
"rack","A storage device for handling material in pallets. A rack usually provides storage for pallets arranged in vertical sections with one or more pallets to a tier. Some racks accommodate more than one-pallet-deep storage." OR "automated storage/retrieval system (AS/RS)","A highdensity rack inventory storage system with vehicles automatically loading and unloading the racks."

Granted, "carousel" is not listed per se. Yet, as a specialist term in this context - it is an acceptable term in industry for what an Umlagerregal does.

See: 2nd reference
Husky will be showing some new narrow aisle racking for storage of machine parts and lean lifts (vertical carousel) for storage and retrieval of small items.

Thanks for this spirited debate, all of you.
