Automated Storage/Retrieval Systems (ASRS)
Add Speed and Accuracy To Your Order Fulfillment Process
Automation has transformed every aspect of the manufacturing, shipping and order fulfillment industries and product storage and retrieval is no exception. The growth of e-commerce has brought about new improvements and innovations that no one could have imagined just a decade ago, and now it’s realistic for any warehousing operation to consider adding an automated storage/retrieval system to its facility.
AS/RS systems can help to store, buffer (which means hold product in a staging area until a shipment is required) and retrieve products with greater speed and accuracy than ever before.
These systems reduce labor costs for the most time-consuming part of the entire order fulfillment process by bringing product to the employee, instead of the other way around. They save space and improve ergonomics by placing product in the optimum location for employees to handle them, reducing injury risks.

Fixed-Aisle Pallet Load Storage Retrieval Systems
Fixed Aisle Storage & Retrieval Systems consist of one or more aisles framed on both sides by a high density storage rack structure. The pallet or “unit” loads are automatically stored and retrieved under computer control via a crane system. The crane system is most often a machine that consists of a floor running, vertical frame or mast that guides a hoisting carriage on which loads are handled. Insertion / extraction devices on the crane system manipulate loads into and out of the storage rack system.
Similar in fashion and function to unit load systems, mini load systems store totes or cartons instead of pallet loads. The mini load systems pick and place individual light loads from storage cells within the system and delivered to output bays for either picking or stock replenishment. Mini load systems are high throughput, high productivity picking solutions, WMS or WCS directed and completely automated.
