Mobile, rotating kiosk from Magnatag Visible Systems puts information where it needs be..

Rotocube rotating kiosk bulletin tower from Magnatag Visible Systems allows large amounts of information to be displayed, viewed, and processed virtually anywhere in a factory or business. Free-standing, four-sided organizational system can be placed in the traffic stream where everyone can access it.

Four panels contain 24-sq ft of space, as much as a 4 x 6-ft white board. The 78-in.-high, 19-in-square tower turns silently at the touch of a finger in either direction in a 27-in. circle. It can be specified with any of 13 panels, including magnetic white boards; plain; printed with 5-day, 7-day, or monthly calendars; Kanban systems; cork; fabric; or custom-printed steel white boards. All are topped with a customizable marquee that accommodates printed, replaceable titles on each of the four sides.

System is usable in a variety of applications. "We post cell performance and goal information on them," says a South Carolina auto parts manufacturer. "We use it for health and safety, productivity, quality, and Kaizen information," says the manufacturing administrator at a Texas chemical plant. "We can move it to the best locations to put information where it needs to be," says a North Carolina power tool manufacturer.
