ASRS Machines Ideal for Fully Automated Logistics
Automated Storage Retrieval Crane and Shuttle Systems are ideal for fully automated logistics.
There’s no need to compromise your floor space when storing products. Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) have evolved to enable the ever-accelerating pace of commerce in warehouses & distribution centers across the world, 24/7.
AS/RS technology is created for heavy unit loads like pallets or mini load handling systems with cases, totes, trays, etc. Designed to automatically transport loads in and out of storage, they facilitate higher throughput – resulting in faster, more accurate, and more reliable performance rates.
Increased storage density and optimized modular space with versatility.
These systems present the ideal solution for maximum use of vertical storage while using very little floor space – especially in smaller warehouses. At the same time, it also guarantees the safe storage of sensitive or valuable goods. Specialized systems can also be used in deep-freeze applications for Food & Beverage industries.
Virtually no limits to storage configurations and custom solutions.
Automated storage solutions can be designed to fit your existing facility, making the best possible use of your facility footprint and height. The diverse range of load handling devices means that there are almost no limits to shapes and surfaces of the goods that can be stored or buffered.
AS/RS solutions benefit all fulfillment and distribution industries by helping to organize stock, access it quickly, optimize space and reduce reliance on labor.
