Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems Boost Productivity in the Warehouse
In today's rapidly changing technological climate, you need to adapt to ever-changing market conditions and process increasingly difficult tasks to provide reliable, flexible solutions without facing any downtime. In order to properly increase efficiency and uptime in your supply chain operation, you need an automated solution that will benefit your business and your bottom line.
Say hello to automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), a solution that offers high-density storage capacity within a compact footprint, allowing you to maximize the storage space you already have in your existing operation. Get the efficiency you need to be competitive in today's supply chain environment by implementing an AS/RS today.
The Two Main Varieties of Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems
Unit-Load automated storage and retrieval systems are designed to handle large loads of goods and products at times measuring thousands of pounds. When pallet level storage is limited and quick retrieval is needed, Unit-Load AS/RS are ideal. The two main types of Unit-Load retrieval systems are Fixed-Aisle Unit-Load AS/RS Cranes and Movable-Aisle Unit-Load AS/RS Cranes.
Mini-Load automated storage and retrieval systems typically handle smaller loads of product compared to the Unit-Load AS/RS. Instead of full pallets, Mini-Load AS/RS handle totes, trays and cartons, which is why they're sometimes referred to as "case-handling" or "tote-stacking" AS/RS. The various types of Mini-Load AS/RS include Cranes, Shuttles, Carousel-bases AS/RS and Vertical Lift Modules (VLM).
